It’s the beginning of the end. Melodramatic, right? What I’m really referring to is the change of the seasons in Barcelona. From high summer to autumn, when the leaves fall, we get flash thunderstorms and it gradually cools down. Autumn is the beginning of the end of the year. It’s also my favourite time of year as it marks my beloved native Irish holiday, Halloween. Another notable favourite is the American Thanksgiving holiday. I celebrated (and feasted) with friends while living in NYC twenty years ago and I’ve enjoyed being part of it ever since.
So I’m creating two Cultural Dinner Pairings in Autumn. You are invited to sit at the Savour Academy table and learn about the customs of these two diverse gastronomic cultures, with wine of course! During the events we sip and savour local wines paired with typical cuisine from each. What’s more, there’ll be musical pairing to accompany each event.
My Cultural Dinner Pairings in Autumn
Friday 29th October 20.30h- Irish Cultural Dinner Pairing (Halloween Edition)
There will be songs and stories, costume and Halloween readings are all welcome here. We will get into the spirit of Irish Halloween traditions, while enjoying a three-course pairing dinner with fresh seasonal produce.
Thursday 25th November 19.30h- American Cultural Dinner Pairing (Thanksgiving)
A classic Thanksgiving celebration, where all participants are invited to give thanks and enjoy a great dinner pairing. With live americana blues (tbc), a massive turkey and sublime wines this is one event that you don’t want to miss!
