My Cava Sabrage and Paella Pairing is borne of a desire to combine this classic gastronomical duo. You are guaranteed to have a blast!
Here’s What You Can Expect
At Savour Academy, you’ll “sabre the moment” as you learn to pop the top off a bottle of cava. After a brief history lesson on the background of champagne sabrage, I’ll show you the safe technique of sabrage. After that it’s every man, and woman for themselves! Joking aside, this is a hands-on workshop where I’ll assist you to sabre your very own bottle of biodynamic cava from the Parés Baltà winery in D.O. Penedès. Successful sabreurs receive a certificate of completion and their sabred cork as a keyring!
We sabre only good quality cava and we drink what we don’t spill, with paella to pair!
Pairing Paella with Cava
If you’ve had a seafood paella by the beach before you’ll recall the salinity of fresh shellfish, the savoury saffron flavour contrasted with lemon and herbs. Paella goes excellently with white wine in general, but for an extra special mouthfeel, a good cava is next level pairing. This brut cava has a dry freshness, fruit and lively acidity to boot.
