A popular hotel plans to bring the taste of Spain to Keswick.
Head chef at the town’s Skiddaw Hotel Bobby Fillingham has introduced a new tapas menu to coincide with the venue’s reopening on Monday.
Bobby has added over 15 authentic Spanish tapas dishes to the Bar and Conservatory menu and plans to hold a weekly Spanish-themed night, set to launch in June.
Both of these have been heavily inspired by the 18 years that the chef spent working in Spain before moving back to the UK.
Tapas Thursdays will see the vibrant culture of Spain come alive in the heart of Keswick, as the evening will incorporate authentic tapas dishes, jugs of sangria, continental beers and Spanish entertainment, the hotel said.
Bobby added: “I learnt all about Spanish food from a range of highly experienced chefs in the Balearics.
“From the old-school traditional right through to when the new wave of technical creativity became popular in kitchens; I gained so much valuable knowledge which I have adapted into the new menu.”
