Fancy going on a sumptuous journey of the delights of Portuguese cuisine without leaving Zone 1?
Look no further than the latest partnership between Graham’s Port and supper club aficionados Disappearing Dining Club, who have collaborated on a series of six-course dinners inspired by up-and-coming holiday hotspot, Porto.
Little Quiet, nestled on the backstreets of Barbican, will be transformed into ‘Little Porto’ for each dinner, which will feature dishes devised by Head Chef Fred Bolin and wines of the Douro Valley provided by Graham’s.
Highlights from the menu including Pig’s Head Rillette with Rosemary Bread; Slow Roasted Pork Belly Black Bean Stew; and Pan-Fried Sea Bream with Baked Fennel. Dishes will also be paired with a wine from the Graham’s range and will culminate in a flight of spectacular Tawny Ports – including a wine almost a quarter of a century old.
Beyond the set pairings, diners will be able to choose from a wide range of drinks on the menu showing off the versatility of Port, from White Port Negronis to simple cocktails with a Ruby Port twist.
Hosted at private dining venue Little Quiet, the series of dinners aims to transport guests to the Douro for the evening and demonstrate that Port deserves a place at the table all year-round, not just at Christmas.
