Tapas Theme Night At The Nook

Early December was our monthly supper club at The Nook On The Square. This month was Tapas.


The front room looked lovely with a few Christmas decorations 
We offered a small selection of bread, olives, manchego (Spanish Cheese), olive oil, balsamic and tomatoes as a starter. 

Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine. They may be cold or hot. For our event they were all hot. So many dishes involves a lot of preparation and cooking. 

Preparation of Aubergine Parmigiana. Layers of aubergine, arribiata sauce, breadcrumbs and parmesan. 

Slices of Chorizo.

Manchego croquettes moulded, breaded and ready to bake

Spanish omelettes look really colourful and appetizing 
On the menu was,
Spanish Meatballs
Garlic & Chilli King Prawn and Mushrooms
Chorizo & Butterbean Red Wine Stew
Andalusian Style Chicken
Spanish Omelette
Potatas Bravas
Aubergine Parmigiana
Manchego Croquetas

I was so pleased with how everything looked when it went out in the small dishes.

And for dessert we offered:
Austurian Crepes, a sweet pancake filled with custard and apple.

Pan de Higo, made from figs, cranberries, apricots and almonds rolled in sesame seeds. Served with a spanish Manchego cheese and crackers.
Once again a lot of hard work behind the scenes but a very successful evening. Watch out, we are going Moroccan next!!
