Fideuá Demonstration on Saturday

The Spanish Table Seattle                                                                  February 17, 2011

Fideuá is a delectable pasta dish from Valencia that is cooked in a Paella Pan. If you’ve only used your paellera to prepare rice dishes, we highly recommend that you experiment with Fideuá. Typically made with seafood and served with alioli, the combinations are as endless as the variety of ingredients you can pull together. This Saturday February 19th, we’re celebrating Manager Isaac Rivera’s 30th birthday.  In celebration of Isaac’s cumpleanos,  Jefe Steve will be demonstrating how to cook a Fideuá, beginning at noon. Stop by to get a free sample of the Fideuá and a copy of the recipe.

Come and shop our expanded Sherry selection!
