Tapas Revolution in Bidford on Avon

Tapas Revolution in Bidford on Avon

As you know Omar is passionate about bringing authentic Spanish food to the UK and wants to make Spanish cuisine as popular as Chinese, Italian and Indian. That's why he was excited to hear from Kevin and Lesley Haywood, owners of The Bulls Head in Bidford on Avon, Warwickshire who recently converted their restaurant into El Toro Spanish Tapas Bar! 

Inspired by Omar's cookbook; 'Tapas Revolution' and after attending one of Omar's demos at Leiths, Kevin and Lesley are converting the residents of Bidford on Avon to the joys of delicious Spanish food. A lot of the dishes they cook are from Omar's book and particular favourites include; Chorizo in Cider, Moorish Pork Skewers and Braised Ox Cheeks. They've even had two Spanish visitors who both rated the food ten out of ten. So if you're craving some delicious Tapas but are too far from Tapas Revolution in Westfield or London check out El Toro Spanish Tapas Bar in Warwickshire! 

It's great to hear from people who have embraced Omar's enthusiasm for Spanish food, if you've been spreading the revolution tell us about it on Twitter @tapasrevolution

World Dinners with Ben Spalding

World Dinners with Ben Spalding

Omar joined fellow chef Ben Spalding in the kitchen at Redhook Restaurant in London, for the Spanish chapter of Ben’s World Dinners series. Omar and Ben collaborated for one night at this exclusive event, offering their 31 guests the best of Spanish cooking. Ben wanted to work with Omar for this unique event, as he believes Omar to be "one of a handful of exceptionally talented people championing Spanish cooking in London".

Omar said of the event: "It was a great experience working with Ben at his World Dinners Evening, he is such a talented and creative young chef and it was brilliant to see first hand how other chefs work in the kitchen. It was great to work together to create such interesting and innovative dishes!"

The evening was a roaring success, with dishes such as Braised Iberian pork cheeks with saffron potatoes, and Langoustine tail, fennel in various ways, pureed corn and fried lettuce.
