SPANISH SUMMER SUPPER CLUB, SUNDAY, AUGUST 14, 2011

      

Two Broads Abroad is all about the food we experience on our travels.  So our next supper club is an interpretive dance of the dishes we consumed in Spain. The selections reflect our esoteric taste AND dishes we can reproduce in the states.  For instance we had the very best spring lamb in Baeza, a small town close to Cordoba, Spain.  But for the life of me I can’t track down milk fed lamb, nor the recipe.

We started in Madrid, headed south to Cordoba, north along the coast to Valencia, even further north to Barcelona and back to Madrid.  Our journey took us to extremely traditional places that serve the ubiquitous tomato bread, tortilla and gazpacho to the likes of Pla, Tapac24, Dos Cielos in Barcelona and The Bazaar in Madrid and Seu-Xerea in Valencia where reinvention and innovation are the foremost ingredients. So this menu contains the greatest hits of our adventure—a variety of tapas and a reinvention of paella.  Hope to see you there.
