Join us and Miguel Leal of speciality wine importers Casa Leal as we explore Petiscos - the Portuguese refinement of tapas - with wine at the Dispensary, a superb converted Victorian hospital in Aldgate on Tuesday March 9, 2010 at 18:45.
We'll be eating 8 Petiscos with 8 Decanter-award-winning wines from Casa Leal, Britain’s leading Portuguese wine supplier. Miguel Leal, Casa Leal’s proprietor and acknowledged connoisseur, will guide the evening.
The Pesticos will be prepared by Dave Cambridge, the chef proprietor of the Dispensary and former private chef to the Rothschild Family. Unfortunately we are not providing vegetarian alternatives because it is not operationally feasible, and culturally inauthentic.
