Their wide open but sheltered terrace was the ideal venue for this autum feast; the service was a bit slow but gracious and the owner went out of his was to treat us like family; he didn't even want us to leave at the end, wanting to practice his English; quite a fine chap!! We all recommend this restaurant if you want a drink, a snack or a full meal by the waterfront; they will remain open thru the winter. Of course, the good company and conversation made up for the slow service not to mention that when the food came, it was yummy!!
Maggie and I are most grateful to the members who volunteered to help with the coordination of the outings for 2015. We delight in telling you we have 12 months planned; incredible!! Thank you all!!
Just to wet your apetite, Noni will plan January with a fine Japanese restaurant in Nerja; Judy will facilitate us discovering a hole in the wall, Guadalupe Restaurant, (with local and very reasonable menu del dia) behind the viveros in the hills of Torrox where we can observe a whole sale auction of fresh produce at 11am before we lunch; and to complete the first 3 months of 2015, in March, Maggie will introduce us to a fine cooking school in Benajarafe.
For our last 2014 Munch Bunch, you are all invited to sign up to bring a favorite dish to our year end pot luck celebration which will take place at my home, Cortijo NidOlea on Friday, December 19th; eating at 1pm.
In order to avoid munching on 10 to 20 varieties of chocolate cake (heaven!!), the November group suggested that participants confirm their food selection with me so we can aspire to a somewhat balanced meal.
If you prefer not to cook, you can simplify your day by bringing cheese and wine; always welcome!! So far we have:
2 Spanish tortillas
1 Chicken-with added donation of yummy bread and wine
1 Sarmales (Roumanian stuffed cabbage leaves specialty)
1 Mushroom with almond and wine sauce
I say that is quite a mouth watering start and we hope you'll respond with your food selection by Wednesday December 10th. As usual, I will then confirm with the participants and will include the directions. And please fell free to invite a friend or two as it will be a year end celebration!!
Looking forward to seeing you on the 19th of December!! nkk
