Local ancient food & wine pairing @ Cal Marino

May 11, 2017

 

 

Last night we enjoyed the pleasure and company of Cal Marino. I personaly prepared this wine pairing to showcase the greatness of ancient food prepared in Catalonia. The pairing went that way

 

- Cuqueria & papas arrugas - delicious coupage from Galicia (Trexidura and Godello), very fruity style and medium structured prepare yoour mouth for the "papa", a baked potato that you dip on very special sauces, one spicy and the other not. This wine clean spicyness and perfumes your mouth for the next "papa"!


- Ros Marina & codfish carpaccio: Xarel·lo with just a hint of oak is the wine selected for this Codfish carpaccio and a reduction of Pedro Ximenez on top. It's a complex pairing, full of flavour and mixing primary, secondary and tertiary notes till the last bit.

 

- Revolcon & foie on toast. Nothing to write on this, just taste and enjoy! This "Revolcon" from V.T.Castilla is very fruity and act as a melmelade for the "foie"


- Nivia & salmon tartare. Soft and delicious minced and well marinated salmon pairs really well with this white grenache of Empordà. 


- Valderroa mencia & "Truita amb suc".


- Baltos mencia & daark chocolates. Last game! We played with the texture of the chocolate and how biterness change your taste to potenciate the fruit.


Thanks for attending! see you next week!
