ELABORATION

  1. Confit the garlic cloves with the skin, the red pepper, the whole tomatoes and the raw almond in a frying pan.
  2. Let cool and peel the tomatoes, pepper and garlic.
  3. With the blender we blend all these ingredients with the almonds, the oil, the Forvm Merlot vinegar, the goat cheese, salt, pepper and some florets. We booked.
  4. Make the tempura with cold water, flour, egg yolk and salt. Mix well and dip the spring onions, cut in half, in this batter and fry in plenty of oil until they turn into a nice golden colour.
  5. The final assembly of the dish is as follows. On a nice tray or plate, place a generous line of romesco sauce, the calçots arranged in a fun way, the acorn-fed ham, a few drops of romesco sauce on top and the flowers of your choice.
