I know, I know. Tapas are so over. But that doesn’t make them less fun to eat out doors. To celebrate the coming of summer, we had our first outdoor dinner of the year. Well, maybe not really our first since we did have a barbecue a few weeks ago, but one of our first.
Will made most of the food. I contributed by making, breaking, and then fixing an aioli for the potatoes. For dinner, we had patatas bravas (from this Serious Eats recipe that uses the bravas part loosely), marinated carrots, white bean salad, mushrooms sauteed in white wine, and some random things like cornichons, roasted red peppers, olives, and a hunk of cheese for me.
For dessert, we had something so simple but so good. Figs and apricots broiled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Broiled apricots are amazingly good! They taste like super concentrated apricots.
