Pate al cava / Giger sangria
I spent most of my childhood dreaming about food I’d read about in books: Enyd Blyton’s pies and ginger ale; feasting with Astérix and Obélix and those fantastic roast boars… Now, thanks to this Cross Continental Cooking project with Tricia Martin from Eating is Art, I know how to prepare my own ginger ale… who would have ever thought it? And you must take a look at her highly original ginger sangria recipe. And kudo to her for starting still another project, Studio Tricia Martin. I suggest you have a look; she is a true artist.

Pate al cava / Giger sangria
Me pasé toda la infancia soñando con probar la comida de la que hablaban en los libros… me parecía tan exótica y apetecible! Los emparedados, los pasteles de carne y manzana, la cerveza de jengibre de los libros de Enyd Blyton, … y quién no ha soñado con comerse uno (o dos) jabalíes con Astérix y Obélix… y ya puestos darles unos mamporros a esos “malditos romanos” y decirle al pescadero del pueblo galo que su pescado no está fresco para que se organice una buena :P?

Este mes el ingrediente elegido para nuestro Cross-Continental Cooking project fue el cava… y gracias a este proyecto conjunto que tengo con Tricia de Eating is Art voy a poder preparar mi propia cerveza de jengibre, simplemente mezclando sirope de jengibre con agua con gas… De los sueños gastronómicos infantiles ya solo me queda pendiente la pelea a besugazos (o pangazos, según como esté la economía :P) No dejéis de visitar la receta de Tricia: sangría de cava que, como todas las anteriores, está traducida al español. Además Tricia se ha embarcado en un nuevo proyecto: su propio estudio fotográfico Studio Tricia Martin. No dejéis de visitarlo, os dejará sin palabras… En cuanto a mi receta, tenéis que probarla, de verdad, y no volveréis a comprar uno de esos “blocs de foie” con ingredientes dudosos por los que te piden un riñón
