all eating no running

When a friend calls you up and asks if you want to check out a Food & Wine event at a lovely tapas place on Bermondsey street. You say yes.

We were lucky enough to score a spot at the Essential Spain event put on by Spanish Tourist Board & Food and Travel Magazine.  Food, travel, wine, tapas, and a couple of good friends? What else would you want to do on a Monday?

Within 3 minutes of arriving at Pizzaro we had our cava hands full and were tucking into the plates of Manchego and jamón Ibérico.

José was in the kitchen firing out plate after plate of fabulous tapas. Trying to keep up was difficult and some of the gossip had to wait.

My favourite of the night was the Cod a la llauna and this amazing pork that was cooked like beef and was so so so tender.

The Spanish Tourist Board guy spoke about the great tragedy of British Tourists going to Spain and eating bad Paella and how millions and millions are affected. It’s not a problem I have ever encountered, but if you find yourself in this situation I’m sure this travel guide will help.

After we polished off these last few cakes we rolled home (but sadly not back to a Spanish villa) Thanks for the invite Jen!
