What they ate at the wedding of the year
Here´s a very very Spanish vignette.
Last Saturday one of the most famous bullfighters got married in a big splash wedding that was the social event of the year. Everyone was there, my dear, including my parents. In the excitement of table hopping and celebrity spotting, my mother forgot to bring me the menu, so it´s paraphrased. But still and all, a foodie scoop of sorts, and here it is, in case you ever have to entertain a to a crowd of toreros, flamenco dancers and it girls.
Cream of escalibada soup.
Creamy shrimp rice (arroz caldoso, a Jerez specialty).
Quails with truffles, chestnuts and sauteed plums.
Three chocolate millefeuille, ice cream (mother not sure what kind) and meringues, mango coulis.
