LIF - Taste the Difference: Galician vs Yorkshire at Pintura Kitchen
LIF16 - Taste the Difference: Galician vs Yorkshire
At Pintura, though their heart may be Basque, Yorkshire is firmly their mistress and exclusively for Leeds Indie Food Festival, Pintura Kitchen are bringing Galician Beef to Leeds, for a tasting evening with a difference (no, they're literally offering you the opportunity to taste the difference!).
On Tuesday 17th May, join Pintura Kitchen’s Head Chef Greg Lewis & specialist Spanish food importer Javier De La Hormaza from Grey’s Fine Foods for a bespoke & exclusive 4-course tasting menu expertly paired with a variety of drinks, curated to show the finest that the Basque and Spain have to offer.
Whilst Galician Beef will of course be the highlight of the night we will be trying this next to some fantastic locally raised rare breed beef, giving you a one off opportunity to try both side by side & decide for yourself which you truly prefer.
If you have not heard of Galician beef they are ex-dairy cattle that are offered an extended retirement & are turned out onto the beautiful pastures of Northern Spain in either Galicia or the Basque country. They are then allowed to mature to between 8 & 15 years of age, which allows more natural grass-fed marbling of the beef that developed a deep rich flavour, far darker in colour than the pinky-red meat from younger animals that we are used to, with a much stronger flavour, completely unlike anything else you will have tried.
A delicacy that is celebrated in the culinary epicentre that is the Basque region, is still a rare & sought after experience in the UK & as a result, it rarely makes it out of the capital. With limited spaces, make sure you don’t miss out on this unique dining experience!
