After a sell out soft launch period, five star reviews and a packed restaurant every weekend the next phase begins as the Pilgrim monthly tasting menu is launched.
The first event is to celebrate Dia de Asturias taking place at Pilgrim on September 11. For this event they’ll be collaborating with a few friends, Estrella Galicia, Spains oldest independent brewery who after 113 years are still family owned and Great British Chefs, the food lovers first call for recipe inspiration and restaurant knowledge.
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. View the full menu.
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.
Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Santander, San Sebastian and Santiago de Compostela all are renowned for their gastronomic culture and love of fine food and wine and it was while visiting these cities that the Pilgrim team fell in love with Spain. We’ll be showcasing some of the dishes that these cities are famous for including the ‘bocadillo de calamares’ – the city of Madrid’s famous fried squid sandwich, and grilled hake with salsa verde from Santander where seafood is a way of life amongst locals.
