Nothing captures the spirit of the Iberian Penninsula quite like tapas. Spanish tapas to be exact. Typical dishes include: patatas bravas (potatoes with red sauce), costillas (pork ribs), calamari, pimientos (roasted peppers) and entrees heavy in chicken and pork. The small plates provide a bevy of flavors to satisfy any palette and are perfect for sharing.
Here to share his gourmet versions of these classic dishes is Michael Fiorello of Garces Group. He’s representing the restaurant Amada in Old City by cooking up a yummy chicken and egg dish called “Madre y Hijo” or “Mother and Son.” The ‘madre’ is made out of a truffle oil seared chicken breast and the ‘hijo’ is an egg yolk. The combination is not uncommon for Spanish dishes, which commonly include egg.
Also up for grabs are a yummy chocolate cake with pistachio cream and a basted costillo (pork rib). Needless to say these didn’t last long among our crew! Take a look.
