From tapas to flames
July 19th, 2007

Sleeping with a wet towel draped over your body seems like the only viable option during the current heat-wave we’re experiencing, and soaring temperatures surely added a fair share of heat to last week’s partying, too. Our friends Carlos and Anja were hosting their 2nd International Tapas Event, a ballsy title you think? The understatement of the year I’d say – we looked at the most extensive variety of tapas I have ever seen on a single – aching under the weight – table.

Tapas

Carlos’ latest trip to Madrid helped him stock up on all the indispensable items and he fully drew upon his Galician background when he planned the menu: various cheeses, olives, Lomos, Jamón Ibérico, Chorizo over different Empanadas, Fideuá, Albóndigas, Níscalos to freshly made Gazpacho and Tortilla – the food was amazing and so was to learn more about traditional recipes and preparations.

Tapas

Each tapa was marked with little, numbered Post-it label (1-20) that helped referencing it in everyone’s tasting note sheets. We haven’t received the final results yet, but recalling the yum-sounds I would say it was a tough battle between the Jamón Ibérico, the Gazpacho and the Empanadas. But a real surprise awaited us after dinner, when Carlos carefully prepared a mystical drink of Galician tradition – and a feast for the eyes! Take a peek at the below picture, any idea what he might have served us while reciting appropriate verses (*hint*)?

Hot stuff
