🧀 Pintura - Sweet Dreams are made of Cheese 🧀
As soon as Cheese Week is over, we promise we'll stop with the not-so-grate puns, but until then you'll just have to grin and camembert it.
Starting on the 11th September, our specials board will be chock-a-block with cheesy pintxos and tapas dishes like fondues, croquettes, cheeseboards and cheesecakes, paying homage to the finest fromage from the Basque region, such as Idiazabal and the creamy Manchego. And, as an extra special treat, you'll be able to enjoy our signature artisan cheeseboard for only £5, all week!
Plus, do you want to WIN a £50 tab to use at Pintura during Cheese Week? Simply head over to our Instagram or Facebook page and comment your best Spanish cheese pun on our latest post!
If that wasn't enough cheesy goodness, on Wednesday 13th September, we're playing host to one of Spain's most prestigeous wine makers for a seven course Cheese & Wine Pairing Dinner with Federico Vázquez Amoedo, the Export Director for J.Chivite Family Estate.
The menu includes mouth-watering queso courses such as a smoked Idiazabel fondue with cheese straws, Basque ‘Rarebit’ with Son Mercer de Baix Mahon, Chorizo Iberico, Lea & Perrins and brioche and Traditional Basque cheesecake with boozy fruit and turron crumbs. Making the most of September’s harvest, our seasonal and local produce will be combined with the finest Spanish exports for an deliciously cheesey experience. Trust us, it will be unbel-brie-vable!
Tickets for the seven-course pairing dinner are £40pp and available now from Pintura, to secure your place, contact us on 01134 300915 or email us for more information.
