New Year feast Spanish style
New Year's eve we were invited to join a local Spanish family for their traditional get together. The extended family were in attendance so tables had been set out the 'tiled garage' and an open wood fire lit in the corner fireplace to heat the space. The table was laden with seafood, hams, cheeses, olives, smoked salmon breads and crackers. After the cold course there was pork cooked with pineapple and the British visitors contribution, curry..
What a priviledge to be invited right into the heart of the family for this shared feast, I hope we managed to convey our gratitude in our snatches of badly pronounced Espanola and their sketchy understanding of English.
What a fantastic experience! And what a lovely family to invite you. I hope the prawn curry went down a storm.ReplyDelete
Prawn curry was perhaps a step too far ...but we enjoyed a significant part of it the next day..Delete
Trust Captain Ahab to get his knees under the table when there's a feed going!!ReplyDelete
All looks great fun.
Pasties and pints of local 'Proper Job' ale in Padstow the height of our culinary intake!
