Spanish Cava producer Codorniu are holding a Barcelona Supper Club in Wigmore Street in November, including dining, masterclasses and demonstrations. Codorniu are no stranger to supper clubs - they sponsor the Channel 4 series The Secret Supper Club.
"The Barcelona Supper Club by Codorníu offers the ultimate in Spanish indulgence. Enjoy the art of jamón carving with expert jamón carver Chus Valvor of Tozino, a hands-on cookery class with Rachel McCormack of Catalan Cooking, and a Fizzness School cava masterclass by Codorníu, before sitting down to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour… all in one action-packed supper club evening.
A ticketed event, the evening will incorporate a traditional jamón carving class hosted by Chus. You will learn how to choose the correct knife, position the jamón on a ‘jamonero’, make the first cut, carve wafer thin slices, and even blend the different layers of succulent jamón. You will walk away with an understanding of the different cuts of jamón; the Maza, Babilla, Codillo and Punta, their impact on aroma, texture and flavour and, of course, a first lesson in how to expertly carve.
You’ll also have the chance to cook up an authentic, seasonal Catalan dish with Rachel McCormack, founder of Catalan Cooking classes and supper clubs, who specialises in authentic Catalan dishes that are easy to recreate at home.
The “Fizzness School”, hosted by Codorníu, is a cava tasting where you can learn how to pair sparkling wines with delicious food. You’ll complement your kitchen creations with authentic cava and then sit down to dine in true Barcelona style and enjoy your three course meal."
