Pick Up A Padron Pepper Plant This Weekend
Spanish Table Seattle Newsletter April 14, 2011
|Tomorrow, Friday, April 15th kicks off sales of Padron Pepper plants. Unfortunately it’s too early to plant them outside, so keep the plants in a warm and sunny window until Memorial Day. Give them fertilizer so they’ll be strong and ready to produce peppers when they go outside. $4.99 each.
If you’ve never tasted these habit forming peppers, here’s how to enjoy them at their peak: Pick them when they are no more than 3 inches long, take them inside and immediately fry in olive oil until they are blistered. Remove from heat, sprinkle with sea salt and eat as soon as they cool down. Be warned: occasionally you’ll get a hot one! This is part of the appeal.
Starting tomorrow, we’ll be carrying freshly made, ready-to-eat Empanadas every Friday and Saturday. Owner Rodrigo of Maria Luisa Empanadas will deliver them at noon and feature six flavors, including vegetarian. They are $3.00 each, with a 10% discount for purchases of 6, and 20% off for a dozen. Great for parties! We’ll be getting 4 dozen on Fridays and 8 dozen each Saturday, so please pre-order if you’d like to pick up a large quantity.
On Tuesday April 19, 2011 we've got a special dinner coming up at The Harvest Vine featuring the stellar wines of Rioja's Bodegas Ontañón. Fifth generation family member Raquel Perez Cuevas will be in town and will guide us through an evening of wines paired with The Harvest Vine's always glorious food. $65.00 per person, includes four wine flights - 2008 Vetiver Blanco, 2007 Ontañón Crianza, 2004 Ontañón Reserva and 2001 Ontañón Gran Reserva. Click Ontanon Dinner for the menu. 6:30 Guest Arrival.
