Lola's Cafe

Tapas and Spanish Wine Tasting

Friday, March 4

6:00

 

Join us at Forage for a special evening of Spanish wine & cuisine. Nuria Hoff will be sharing some of her Grandmother Dolores "Lola" Ridruejo's tapas recipes in a family-style gathering. Lola was born in El Burgo de Osma, Soria in 1893 and lived most of her life in Catalonia. She and her husband made their home in Sant Sadurny D'Anoia where all of the Cava in Spain is produced. Her husband was a local physician. They lived thru the Spanish Civil War and even though times were tough they never went hungry due to Lola's creativity in the kitchen and the generosity of her husband's patients who often paid him with goods & produce.  No matter how meager the meal, they always washed it down with Cava which was abundant. When her husband passed away the local Cava makers promised that she would have Cava for life....and they kept their word. This might be why she lived to be 101!
