Raise a fork and important funds at the same time thanks to this rare upcoming dinner with Eneko Atxa and Nieves Barragán
Taking place this July, join talented chefs Eneko Atxa and Nieves Barragán for a special dinner in Covent Garden, with all proceeds raised from the evening going to Action Against Hunger.
Known for his incredible eco-friendly approach to food, Eneko will cook alongside fellow Basque chef, Nieves Barragán, co-founder of the Michelin-starred Sabor in Mayfair.
With both chefs born and bred in Bilbao, Eneko and Nieves have been instrumental in introducing the now famous Basque cuisine to an international audience.
Lucky guests will be treated to a nine-course tasting menu, with the stunning dishes inspired by their home region.
To start, guests will sample Kaipiritxa, one of Eneko’s signature dishes from Azurmendi.
Nieves will then offer Pig’s head croquetas with quince alioli, which will be followed by Beetroot tartare, pickled onions, chives and olive oil caviar – a favourite at Eneko Basque Kitchen & Bar.
The Basque Country is bordered by the Bay of Biscay to the north, and as a result the region’s cuisine has a strong focus on seafood.
This is no different in the menu from Eneko and Nieves, which includes Marinated red mullet; Piquillo peppers stuffed with smoked haddock brandade, squid ink sauce; and Diver caught scallops with dashi and ham consommé.
For dessert, Eneko will offer the fruity and floral Rose marshmallow with strawberry sorbet, whilst Nieves’s signature Goat’s cheese ice cream with liquorice will conclude the dinner.
All proceeds from the dinner on 3 July will be donated to Action Against Hunger, of which Nieves is an ambassador. A global organisation determined to save the lives of malnourished children, AAH takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger.
