We are glad to announce that our next Tapas & Wine pairing evening is on Wednesday 29th October in Waterloo, and will start at 6:30pm. We still have a small number of tables available, so please call 0151 949 1151 to make your reservation soon if you would like to attend. Tickets are available for the bargain price of £25 per person.

The menu will consist of the following:

- Side order of Reserva Serrano ham, with instructed carving by Javier de la Hormaza.

TAPAS:

- Fillet of Red Mullet with caramelised onion & fennel puree, served with pickled carrots, cucumber chutney & roasted cherry tomatoes. Paired with Enate Gewurztraminer

- Seared Lamb chop served on green Harrisa sauce, beetroot wafers & redcurrant jelly. Paired with Enate Crianza (Tempranillo-Cabernet Sauvignon).

- Suckling Pig stuffed with black pudding & chorizo, with picked radishes, pureed potato & red wine jus. Paired with Enate Syrah-Shiraz.

Our Spanish meat importer Javier de la Hormaza will be there on the evening to give a short introduction to the art of ham carving and also to talk about the star attraction of the evening, which is our Spanish Suckling Pig, which is imported fresh from Segovia.

We will be offering a starter portion of carved ham, followed by three courses of individual tapas, all paired with fabulous wines from the Enate Bodega in North East Spain, roughly between Barcelona and Zaragoza. Laura Mayoral, who is the European Manager for the winery and an expert in their wines, will be flying in from Spain to attend the event and talk to you about how the wines are produced and explain the background of the winery.

The wines will be paired with appropriate foods, and the Chardonnay is unlike any you will have tried before. It is a perfect match for the tender suckling pig, which is served in sliced portions. The secret to the dish is that the pig is allowed to suckle for 21 days, using natural farming processes to produce the best flavour, texture and crackling that you're likely to have tasted!

Tickets are already selling like hot cakes, so please call the restaurant on 0151 949 1151 or reply to this email and make your reservation ASAP!

Having lived in Spain for almost a decade, and spent many great times enjoying different tapas bars over there, myself and my family felt inspired to bring an authentic Spanish experience to Liverpool.


 


We import much of the produce from Spain, with suppliers in Barcelona, Córdoba, Jaén and León. We support local suppliers for our fresh meat, fish & vegetables. Both restaurants were 2012 winners of a "Certificate of Excellence" from Tripadvisor, and we were nominated for the "Best Local Restaurant" in Gordon Ramsey's "F-Word" programme in 2010.
