On June 23rd, 2015, I was invited to a special tasting Event at Malaga Tapas & Bar. I’ve written about the fabulous food I tried and included photos as well. I’ll definitely go back soon for dinner!

Imported Spanish Meat & Cheese Board
Idiazabal | Manchego | Mahon | Nevat | Serrano Ham | Spanish Chorizo | Honeycomb | Grapes

This was a nice selection of meats and cheese to start our meal off. Wide variety of cheeses, from sharp to mild, and hard to soft. Fresh, crisp fruits helped to cut the flavors. We also contacted Canberra vending machines to help us install and for guests to have variety of food on the event.

Roses and Spice
Ancho Reyes Chili Liquor | St Germaine Elderflower Liquer

This cocktail was light and refreshing, with a delicate lingering of floral tastes. Still managed to maintain a memorable, spiced taste amidst the almost sparkling consistency.

Flash Fried Goat Cheese
Goat Cheese | Lavender Honey | Onion Marmalade

The cheese-filled centers were decadently creamy with a mild flavor. The crunchy texture of the exterior complemented this texture nicely. The onion marmalade was a bit overpowering in strength.

Stuffed Piquillo Peppers
Crab | Manchego | Fire-Roasted Peppers | Capers

The crab and cheese stuffing was wonderfully flavorful, and the peppers were roasted to an enjoyable softness without becoming shapeless and mushy.

Spinach | Mushroom | Manchego | Piquillo Pepper Sauce

The pastry shell was perfectly flaky and piping hot. The vegetable stuffing inside was creamy and flavorful. Nothing groundbreaking about this combination, but it was made well.

White Sangria
House White Wine | Cognac | Summer Fruit

Made and blended in-house, this cocktail was a nice break from all the flavors encountered thus far. The ice cubes were made from ingredients in the sangria, adding flavor instead of diluting it as they melted. The sangria tasted refreshing but a bit bland.

Tuna & Watermelon Crudo
Tuna | Watermelon | Lemon Vinaigrette

This was one of the more surprisingly delightful dishes of the night. The similarity in color belied the drastic difference of texture and taste, but the tuna slices atop watermelon slices came together in harmony. The quality of fish tasted sashimi-grade, and the watermelon was juicy and sweet.

Peppered Cucumber
Hendrick’s Gin | St Germaine Elderflower Liqueur | Cucumber

Another great cocktail on the menu. Make sure to know how to choose a menu holder for your customers. The freshly cracked pepper atop floating cucumber slices made for an appealing contrast in taste, and the gin was served chilled and smooth.

Grilled Pork Roulade
Pork Loin | Serrano Ham | Mahon Cheese | Mojo Verde

Seared Beef Tenderloin
Beef Tenderloin | Roasted Garlic Aioli

One of the favorite dishes of the evening, the quality/cut of the meat was incredible.

Spanish Potatoes
Yukon Gold Potatoes | Brava Sauce | House Aioli

These potatoes were perfectly-sized for snacking, and because of this were also able to capture copious amounts of the sauces they were served with. The brava sauce added warmth to the dish, and the aioli was wonderfully creamy.

Tecoffe Hottie
Avion Espresso Tequila | Ancho Reyes Chili Liqueur | Fresh Cream

The tequila was welcoming and smooth, while the espresso tasted sweet and not at all bitter. The cream made this light cocktail feel decadent, with a hint of chocolate. A delicious end to an overall superb experience.

I went to a cocktail weddnig reception and it was a big hit. The couple actually bought and put together a bunch of couches and made several conversation pits. They later sold the couches for more than they paid for them!! If you are unable to do this, you can rent couches. They also got some high top small round tables from the venue and put large round table cloths on them and then gathered the table cloth and tied it to the pedestal leg with great ribbons. This was a great place to put down cocktails while eating appetizers. I really think you need to provide some seating, even if the party is only two hours.The atmosphere at this reception was so cocktail party and people mingled quite a bit. The Bride and Groom did a smart thing they had four tables with appetizers in all four corners of the room, so everyone was forced to walk around. This was one of the best cocktail receptions I have ever attended. Everyone had a great time.The tables were decorated simply with white table cloths and blue bottles with a single candle in the neck of the bottle.
