MEWS HOUSE MUSINGS
Spanish Wine and Food masterclass with José Pizarro
Catch me with José Pizarro this year at Jamie Oliver’s BIG FEASTIVAL doing a wine and food masterclass using three of Jose’s favourite wine and Spanish food pairings. I will be there talking through the wines each matched with a specially selected Tapas dish and about exciting Spanish wine regions and wine trends to look out for.

BACK FOR THE AUTUMN!
Join me for a specially curated four-course lunch and tutored wine pairing. You’ll enjoy a carefully selected menu of four world dishes, created and cooked by talented Leiths chef Christine Simpson.
As each is presented, you’ll be served a very special paired wine, chosen to match and enhance the complex flavour combinations in your dish.
Throughout the afternoon, I will teach you how to taste, buy, taste and appreciate wine. I’ll help you discover the difference between objective and subjective tasting, as you start to use your palette with skill, gaining a deeper understanding of your own personal preferences.
The focus for this month’s event will be vegetable led plates with a farm to table influence created by Leiths chef Christine Simpson, matched with natural/biodynamic wines chosen by me.
Although some dishes will include meat, alternatives will be available for vegetarians.
Starter: Farinata with heritage tomato, squash and a rocket pesto sauce
“Fish” course: King oyster mushroom “scallops” with samphire, cauliflower purée and a raisin and caper vinaigrette
Main: Pulled pork or jackfruit with fennel and kolrabi slaw, cornbread and popcorn with BBQ spices
Cheese course: Goats’ cheese with beetroot meringue, pickled beetroot, flaked almonds and homemade bread
Dessert: A damson inspired sweet
Please note, recipes and ingredients might change depending on seasonality.
