Yesterday I was joined at La Rosilla, for the first Cooking & Culture Day of the year, by guests from America.
It was a chilly day in the mountains, but still breathtakingly beautiful with all the Almond trees in blossom, guests were kept warm as they cooked their giant paella, whilst sipping sherries by the fire pit.
Tapas of peppers stuffed with goats cheese, banderillas, cured chorizo, wild mushroom pate and confit cherry tomatoes and single estate olive oils were sampled and enjoyed around our country kitchen. The groups creations of homemade bread & chicken, chorizo and green bean paella , with garden salad were devoured.
The sun came out just in time for ‘Tarta de Santiagio’ a rich almond tart and comforting PX sherry to be savoured on the terrace and time to soak up the view.
