A Taste of Porto | An intimate, wine-paired four-course Portuguese dinner
Portugal has some delicious food & drink.
Hell, its name even starts with a fortified wine.
And the Disappearing Dining Club are going to bring you some of the country’s tastiest dishes, all paired with some top-shelf Portuguese wines, in a series of weekly dinners starting from the 17th of this month.
It’s called A Taste of Porto, and it’ll take place in the Disappearing Dining Club’s own quite incongruously permanent north London gastropub The Dartmouth Arms. The space’s warm wood tones will be candlelit, and underscored by their vinyl-only Hi-Fi sound system.
Walking in, you’ll get a welcome cocktail, then settle in for a four-course feast of food inspired by the Douro Valley. It’ll all be put together by the DDC’s head chef Fred Bolin, and dishes will include the likes of slow roasted pork belly, prawn carpaccio, and apple & port braised celeriac.
Those dishes will allll be paired with some Portuguese wine, and the whole thing will be capped off by the real showstopper: a port tasting flight from Grahams, who’ve been in the business since 1820, and have built up a teeny bit of knowhow in the intervening 200 years.
And as a little kicker, they’ve also enlisted the help of award-winning DJs Ricardo Paris and Jorge Montiel to play some Portuguese jazz-inspired sounds…
…so the wine won’t be the only smooth thing you’re enjoying.
NOTE: A Taste of Porto takes place every Thursday from the 17th of October until the 21st of November. Tickets cost £40 and include welcome drink, four course Port-inspired dinner, four paired glasses of Portuguese wine and a Graham’s Port tasting flight – you can get them right HERE.
