Cooking Class in Austin Helps Spread Love for Spanish Tapas

The chef prepared Galician-style octopus and Manchego cheese with caramelized onions, among other dishes.


There’s nothing quite like Spanish tapas to bring people together. And that’s what’s happened at the restaurant Con’ Olio, in San Antonio, Texas, on August 16th.

Guest chef Fer Candil, from Paella, Tapas & More, offered an evening of Spanish flavors for Spanish food fans, one of the locale’s most popular activities by far.

The class kicked off with a brief intro on olive oils and balsamic vinegars, followed by the cooking demo. The experience was interactive, so attendees were able to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.

Candil prepared the following dishes: Galician-style octopus, garlic shrimp, pa amb tomaquet (bread with tomato), Manchego cheese with caramelized onions, Piquillo peppers with avocado, and a filet mignon pintxo. This is a great introductory course on tapas and surely convinced more than a few people about the wonders of Spanish gastronomy.

Candil, who originally hails from Madrid but has also spent time in Cadiz and Santiago de Compostela, took to cooking as a young child and now continues to prepare the recipes she learned from her mother and grandmother.
