The main from Spain is your gain

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - with Belinda Cipri­ano

THE pop­u­lar­ity of themed can­dlelit din­ners has led city-based restau­rant 1907 to hold a “We Love Spain” din­ner next month.

Fol­low­ing on from the pop­u­lar “We Love WA” and “We Love Italy” din­ners, the Span­ish-styled din­ner will in­clude five cour­ses paired with drinks. Restau­rant man­ager Aaron Mur­phy said given the pop­u­lar­ity of the events, they were likely to be held monthly.

“We hosted our first can­dle light din­ner We Love WA and it was a great night,” he said.

“Our We Love Italy din­ner was booked out, so those who missed out can come to our We Love Spain can­dlelit din­ner. “

Mr Mur­phy said each din­ner started promptly at 6.30pm, with guests in­vited to start the evening with a pre-din­ner drink at their ta­ble.

“Then there is a wel­come an­nounce­ment be­fore the lights are ex­tin­guished and the night kicks off,” he said.

“The din­ner in­cludes a five­course din­ner pre­pared by our head chef, Alan Desouza, and his team of culi­nary ex­perts in the kitchen, as well as drink pair­ings.”

Desouza, who has been mainly in­flu­enced by French cui­sine, said he en­joyed mak­ing the best of what was in sea­son and read­ily avail­able.

He said it helped with the ev­er­chang­ing menu, which was sea- son­ally based.

The restau­rant re­cently un­der­went a re­vamp and in­cludes new vodka-based bar Blu­zou.
