Summary Spanish Tapas Revolution with Omar Allibhoy

The art of mastering authentic Spanish tapas is in the small details.

This hands-on class will instil you with the confidence to throw an amazing feast of tapas for your friends and family. Not to mention injecting your everyday meals with some Spanish flair.

Anyone can rustle up a Gazpacho by following a recipe, but did you know that the tomato flavour will be enhanced by leaving the tomato stalks in the finished soup to infuse? Neither did we, until we spent an evening with Omar Allibhoy, who is as much great home cook, as restaurateur.

Omar's enthusiasm for the food he loves is truly infectious, making this a class that will stick in your memory for years to come.

Typical recipes may include:

  • Alioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)
  • Buñuelos de bacalao (Salt Cod Fritters)
  • Chorizo al vino (Chorizo cooked in wine)
  • Champiñones gratinados (Mushroom Gratin with Ham Mayonnaise)
  • Cogollos de Tudela con vinagreta de pancetta (Grilled lettuce with a sweet and sour bacon vinaigrette)
  • Gazpacho de sandia (Chilled watermelon with soup)
  • Flan de naranja y almendra (Orange and almond caramel)

Please note ingredients and recipes may change.
