El Gato Negro presents an introduction to the wines and foods of Galicia, where Iberia meets the Atlantic. Galicia is a land of geographical contrasts and surprises, with a distinctive and wonderful food culture.
We already carry a limited range of Galician wines, but there are some fantastic wineries in this lesser-known region of Spain which deserve more exposure. We’ve invited a leading expert to showcase them, paired with a range of dishes inspired by the distinctive culture of Galicia. As regular patrons already know, Padrón peppers and Torta de Santiago are two popular Galician delicacies on our menu: however this evening will enable you to experience more gourmet galego delights alongside a fantastic selection of exclusive wines from the region’s independent vineyards.
The menu for the evening will be
Cockles & clams with olive oil, lemon & coriander
Quinta de la Erre
Pan-roasted scallops with fresh white crabmeat & a shellfish sauce
Casal de Paula Blanco
Alodio de Antonia Godello
Grilled sardine fillets with Alejandro chorizo, migas breadcrumbs, garlic & mint
