BoBo on Castle Street is launching a Paella Terrace for summer
1 year ago
Castle Street’s Iberian bar, BoBo is to bring a flavour of Spanish summer to the city centre by launching a Paella Terrace celebrating one of the country’s great culinary gifts to the world.
Paella is a flavoursome one-pot dish found throughout Spain, originating in Valencia but varying from region to region, depending on the availability of ingredients and the whim of the cook.
Prepared using traditional methods that have been handed down from generation to generation, BoBo’s Paella will be cooked in a four-foot diameter, specially imported pan by expert Clive Ransom using the finest ingredients.
There are three standard Paella types: Valenciana; de marisco (seafood) and mixta which is the version BoBo will be whipping up – chock full of chicken, king prawns, calamari, mussels, vegetables and bomba rice.
Steven Burgess of Lucky Penny Group which owns BoBo, said:
“Every year, paellas that can feed more than a thousand people are cooked in towns across Spain and it’s an event that is a veritable assault on the senses. It’s a wonderful community thing and we hope to replicate that excitement – although we might not hit that number of people!
“Obviously at Bobo we are huge fans of all things Spanish and Portuguese and offering some sunshine food and that Iberian spirit is perfect for this time of year and will add to the rich mix on Castle Street. The ideal accompaniment to Paella in the summer is a glass of Sangria and as you would expect we serve jugs of our own homemade homage to this most refreshing of Spanish thirst quenchers.”
BoBo’s Paella Terrace launches on Friday 1st July from 4pm until they sell out. Simply walk up and enjoy and grab a glass of Sangria too.
