Tapas delivery near Stratford on Avon

"Oh that's at the door!"
"It's either that woman or your tapas delivery"
"It's not a woman!"

Broad Marston Manor was like one of those winter scenes you see on the front of Christmas cards. The last few miles had been dicey with the snow filled roads frozen to an ice rink. Like a bit of adventure though.
With a week full of events everything had to be made fresh on the day so it was rush-rush, hence not many new photos :(
Pan rustico - halfway to sourdough using this recipe  - so good I am going to have to make it again and try some this time. Also made corn bread like this one.
Paella - similar to this one from last year
Spicy beef empanadas
Asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon (like the ones seen above from a previous event).
Spanish style mussels in a fennel bread bowl - see how to make the bread bowls here





Brie and spinach croquettes + GLUTEN FREE version
Sides

Insalata mixta
Patatas bravas




Gluten free brazo gitano - as there were a few gluten free guests I made the whole thing gluten free. Amazingly light. - the end pieces were amazing! Filled with whipped chantilly cream and strawberries.

Whole vanilla roasted pineapple just after cooking. 


Rice pudding tarts with blood oranges + some gluten free tart cases 
(As it was a delivery the rice pudding made with half evaporated milk, tart cases and blood orange segments were delivered separately so they could simply be put together just before serving to be at their best). Definitely one to do again!
