The Spanish Table
I am partnering with food enthusiasts across California, to gather guests around the table, in incredibly beautiful locations,
and celebrate Spanish heritage through recipes and tastes.
PAELLA AT THE RANCH
Sunday September 30th,
Rancho San Julian, Lompoc.
To start The Spanish Table series, Elizabeth Poett and I hosted 'Paella on the Ranch' a day at Rancho San Julian to celebrate the end of Summer.
We used the season's produce to create a Sunday traditional meal: Gazpacho, Paella on a long table under the vines, while we learnt
the history of the ranch. We tasted Albariño grown by Pierre La Barge, few miles north from miles north. and sat at the table decorated with zinnias growing crazy around the garden, and linens by Fold.
This was a dreamy afternoon for us and our guests, the sobremesa lingered with chats on the table after the meal. The opportunity to share Spanish food in such a pretty location is what gathering should look like.
A SPANISH LUNCH
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 4th,
THE RUBY STREET. Highland Park, LOS ANGELES.
The gathering included wines imported by Almudena de Llaguno from Classical Wines from Spain, who carefully selected the following:
• Adegas Morgadío from Galicia, and their Morgadío Albariño 2017 D.O. RÍAS BAIXAS
•Dominio Bascocillos and their Viña Magna Seis Meses 2016 D.O. RIBERA DEL DUERO
Also Fermín and their delicious Jamón hand slicing by Carles Salas, station took us to the rustic flavours of Spain, and with an menu designed to bring the bold flavour of cheeses, Octopus and Black squid ink rice, followed by flan.
