Tapas, Feast in the East, South African supper.

Back in November, Joseph McFadden, govt chef at Euphoria Fish House at Margaritaville Vacation resort Orlando, travelled to Spain to characterize the United States at the Earth Tapas Levels of competition hosted by the metropolis of Valladolid. NBC did not address the party.

Other nations participating ended up: Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Ukraine, Portugal, Canada, Japan, Panama, France, Chile, Denmark, Eire, Argentina, United Arab Emirates, and India. The winner, chosen by associates of the Entire world Association of Chefs Societies, which actually chooses to go by the acronym WACS, was Pascal Etcheverria, of Restaurant Le Carré in the pretty city of Bayonne, France. Etcheverria’s tapa was Mejilla de res, zanahorias, paté de pato y maracuyá (beef ideas, carrots, duck paté and enthusiasm fruit).

McFadden’s entry was a duck three-way [pause for snickering] showcasing a crispy duck pores and skin cone filled with duck liver and cognac parfait, smoked duck breast and Peking sauce, garnished with cucumber and white scallion.

That tapa, shown at topa, will be served at Euphoria Fish Home on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 18 and 19. I propose you go out and try out it and then guide a flight to Bayonne, go to Restaurant Le Carré, which I’m guessing is crammed with spies, and try out Etcheverria’s winning tapa and make your personal WACS-totally free choice.
