Wind­sor gets a taste of Spain

Berkshire Life - - Gourmet Gossip -

Her­alded as the ‘An­to­nio Ban­deras’ of cooking by Gor­don Ram­say, TV chef and au­thor Omar Al­lib­hoy is in­tro­duc­ing a taste of au­then­tic Span­ish cooking to Wind­sor. Last month saw the open­ing of his new­est restau­rant, Tapas Revo­lu­tion, which con­tin­ues with his mis­sion of bring­ing tra­di­tional tapas dishes to the UK.

The restau­rant boasts an ex­ten­sive menu, which has been clev­erly de­signed to guide its din­ers on a culi­nary jour­ney through Spain. Sim­ply di­vided into meat, fish and veg­etable dishes, the food is all hand­made on site, crafted from in­gre­di­ents sourced from small-scale

Span­ish sup­pli­ers. Vis­i­tors will be spoilt for choice with all the clas­sic favourites on of­fer, from chorizo, cro­que­tas de jam­bon and cala­mares for the main course through to freshly pre­pared chur­ros for pud­ding. Omar has a wealth of ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence at his dis­posal, hav­ing cooked for the likes of Prince Wil­liam and Johnny Depp and with two cook­books to his name, so din­ers are in for a treat.

The drink of­fer­ing is equally im­pres­sive, with a list of pre­mium gin and ton­ics served in the tra­di­tional ‘Copa de Balon’ glass. Omar and his team have worked in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Cock­tail Trad­ing Com­pany to pro­duce an eclec­tic Span­ish-in­spired cock­tail list, help­ing to give Tapas Revo­lu­tion a buzzing at­mos­phere day and night. The ethos of the restau­rant is in­spired by Omar’s fam­ily recipes, as well as by the Span­ish cul­ture of shar­ing, so­cial­is­ing and eat­ing. “Tapas is more than food – it’s part of our ev­ery­day cul­ture,” he says. “Food and life are al­ways best shared.”

Omar has al­ready opened six suc­cess­ful restau­rants, so Wind­sor marks his next stop in the jour­ney to spread Span­ish food across the coun­try. “I come from Old Castile, a his­toric re­gion of Spain, so have al­ways felt at

“Tapas is more than food - it’s part of our ev­ery­day cul­ture, food and life are al­ways best shared”
