‘Iberico Autumn’

As a gateway between Europe and Africa, and the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Spain has been much fought over throughout history. The Greeks settled its coastal areas as early as the eighth century B.C., while Celts occupied interior regions. By the second century B.C.,Spain was under Roman domination. In the early eighth century A.D., the Moors (Arabs from northern Africa) crossed Gibraltar and entered Spain, occupying it for the next 700 years before Christian kingdoms drove them out.

This long history of invasion is still evident in Spain's cuisine. Olives, olive oil, and wine tie it closely to Greek and Roman (Italian) culture. Meat and fish pies show the Celtic heritage. The Moorish influence is seen in the use of honey, almonds, citrus fruits, and spices, such as cumin and saffron (a yellow spice).

The evening hosted by our Wine Director Francesco Gabriele and Nigel Wilkinson MS (the fine dining account manager and wine educator for Boutinot) takes place in the Wine Room and is limited to just 16 guests. Enjoy an aperitif and canapé reception, followed by a five course dinner with paired wines.

Non-residential £110 per person

Includes: aperitif & canapé reception, five course dinner with wine pairings, coffee and chocolates.
