Ant Power of Pilgrim says “We are excited to be launching our monthly tasting menu events in September with Dia de Asturias where we will feature a special 6-course menu that follows a 332km section of the Camino Del Norte running from from Oviedo in Asturias to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. These monthly tasting menu events will truly show what Pilgrim is all about – following a specific path of the Camino, drawing inspiration from the diverse produce and culinary heritage found along the way. Taking our guests on a gastronomic pilgrimage in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Buen Camino!”
The six course tasting menu will aim to showcase the best of radically seasonal produce from these two regions with each dish paired with beers from Estrella Galicia. With their cool, wet climates and fertile landscapes both of these regions are famous for a wealth of incredible produce, from the blue cheese of the Picos de Europa to the pulpo of Galicia, both these regions have incredible culinary provenance.
Some key items on the menu that evening include octopus fabada paired with Estrella Galicia World Lager and a rump of lamb with sidra sauce paired Estrella’s 1906 Reserva Especial.
Furthermore, on the 9th October, Pilgrim will celebrate ‘The Day of Spain’ which celebrates Christopher Colombus landing in The New World in 1492.
For Spain’s national day, Pilgrim will be hosting a special 6-course tasting menu where they raise a toast to some their favourite cities across Spain.
