Croquetas is one of the most popular Pintxos in San Sebastian. You’ll find these gorgeous little bites on almost every restaurant or bar menus. Everywhere else in Spain you will find them as tapas! Croquetas are everywhere, all around Spain! You can’t and you won’t miss them!
Surprised to see my name instead of Jean-Félix as an author in that cocktail section? That’s because I needed to talk to you about that place. As you already know, Jean-Felix is a bartender, and an AMAZING one. He got me really picky about cocktails. As I’m used to drinking what he does for me all the time, I’m not easily impressed anymore when I go to cocktail bars and this, no matter where we are in the world.
What’s up everybody! Valentine’s day coming and I’m sure many of you are looking for the perfect gift. Well, this might save your day. I just tried a new gin from Belgium and it’s INSANE!!!
I must say I’m not the one who usually like the “not London dry style” when it comes to gin, but in this case, the ingredients line up really teased me. I think the word “tease” fits perfectly the mood here since X-Gin self-proclaimed themselves an aphrodisiac gin. Well, I don’t know about that yet but the cocoa and vanilla in the mix, added to the marketing of the aphrodisiac property make of this gin, on top of being delicious, the perfect Valentine’s day gift. Don’t you think?
The first time I saw these little pieces of heaven we were in Napoli. I stopped right in front of the window of the bakery. I was totally charmed! Now, when I think about it … I realize how stupid I was because I didn’t try them there. Nope! Instead, I took a picture to make sure I would never forget and I continued walking. This is one of my biggest problems when I’m travelling. I don’t want to miss a thing. We walk as much as we can, all day long, to discover the city and sometimes we realize it’s happy hours and we spent the whole day without having a single bite. On top of that, most of the time we can’t make it back to where we found something because … we simply can’t find it back. I know it’s CRIMINAL with so much amazing food to try everywhere. That being said, I can’t wait to visit Italy again and taste Pignolis there and compare them with mine. Honestly… I’m not worried!
The star bread is a magnificence! We love it so much. Jean-Felix can eat the whole thing all by himself! Yes, he eats like a baby dinosaur! Ha-Ha-Ha! The most amazing with this recipe is that as soon as you know how to make the dough and the shape, you can flavour it with whatever you want. I made it with sugar, spices and butter but you can put your favourite jam, chocolate, or even better, you can make it salty! Pesto, nuts, ham, cheese… You see me coming, right? I think it won’t be my only star bread on this blog! So I will let you enjoy this one and we’ll see what will be the next one! This is sooooooooo GOOD!!!
Enter the Legacy! That’s what 3 of my friends will try to do this Tuesday in Miami during the Bacardi Legacy national finals, one of the most prestigious cocktail competitions in the world.
