For a late dinner, some pernil style pork shoulder, with arroz con gandules. I couldn’t find skin on pork shoulder at a small enough size so I used skinless and topped it with some pork skin I had in the freezer.

Last night we made skirt steak fajitas grilled over the campfire, with zucchini and spinach salad - neither of which I had room for after a big lunch. Birthday cupcakes after (sorry for the scribble but I like to protect the kiddo’s privacy online til he’s old enough to decide).

i would be more than glad to however, it is getting very late and we need to be up early as we have alot to do and we are travelling as mentioned.

Sorry but I need to re - read my notes that we took after speaking to the waiter as well as Chef Ramón Frexia who is from Barcelona. We know him and his father as they have a restaurant in one of the top Hotels in Barcelona.

So, be patient and I will however, these concoctions are prepared with “high tech treatments” and nitrogen liquid … The basic ingredient is the oxtail (rabo de toro) as it is the month of this specialty in Madrid Capital.

Gold: this is a gelatin concoction from the oxtail.
Red: is the oxtail and vegetables created from the sauce transformed into a creamy texture.
Brown bull: this is meat that is transformed into a melt in your mouth cracker.
