Spanish Fiesta - celebrating the end of 2022
" Wonderful aromas of delicious food from constantly refreshed buffet stations tempted our taste buds "
What would it be like to visit La Boqueria markets stalls in Barcelona or San Miguel in Madrid?
The experience in fact came to us! Stuko Hall, operated by our member Maître Restaurateur Niv Raz-Haim, set the scene perfectly. Painted in warm, festive vibrant red and gold colours, flags and flowers decorating tables, a DJ played Spanish music throughout the evening.
Antonio Millan, Deputy Ambassador of Spain to Israel joined us as an honoured guest.
Welcomed with generous glasses of warm sangria and a selection of cocktails we caught up and chatted in the festive atmosphere.
The accompanying Spanish wines, presented by Yitzhak Molcho, came from Vina Memorias winery based in the hills around Valencia.
Wonderful smells of delicious food from constantly refreshed buffet stations tempted our taste buds.
