La Tasca on Renfield Street in Glasgow is hosting a special event on Tuesday 25th September. The event will celebrate the launch of our new autumn / winter menu and will see Antonio Bennetto - La Tasca's executive chef, who masterminds all our delicious dishes, deliver a fantastic paella master class for our guests.
The evening event will kick off at about 6pm - 6.30pm with a cocktail and sangria master class - and there will be of course the opportunity to sample these! After this Antonio will deliver his paella master class and give lots of tips and tricks of the trade, which we hope will allow you to re-create a mouth watering and tasty paella at home. We will also be showcasing our new menu with plenty of tasters for all to enjoy.

Now the main reason for the invite for this evening was to introduce the new dishes on their menu.
NEW! PAELLA NEGRA (VALENCIA)
The famous black paella with squid and lemon.
I have to admit again I did into try this as it just does not appeal. But the other bloggers at out table shared this pan full and were very impressed with it.
NEW! OVEN-BAKED FLAT BREAD (BALEARIC ISLANDS)
Topped with fire roast peppers, onion and cheddar cheese - great to share!
NEW! HOME-MADE BEEF BURGERS (CATALUÑA)
Two fresh mini home-made beef burgers with all the Spanish toppings.
These were beautiful, really meaty, no evidence of cheap nasty fillers, and were really juicy inside.
NEW! CHORIZO & MORCILLA (CASTILLA Y LEÓN)
Spanish black pudding and chorizo cooked with fire roast peppers, basil and onion.
NEW! SPICY ROASTED VEGETABLE CASSOLO WITH ALMOND (CASTILE LA MANCHA)
Butternut squash, red onion, chickpeas, celeriac and cannellini beans in a winter warming spicy tomato sauce topped with crushed almonds and parsley.
This I found very pleasant., not to spicy
I have to say it was a lovely evening, the hospitality was excellent, and it was well attended
