Cocas and Clams at Peniche

To conclude Sue and Geneís visit, Marissa arranged an outing to Peniche. After seeing what fun Trae had trying the new menu there in April. We had what is quickly becoming one of my favorite dishes, the mozzarella with honey and fennel:

The guests. Maris and Gene:

Me, Sue and Hunna:

Graham couldnít come because the babysitter cancelled at the last minute.

Christian started us off with charcuterie:

null

Which was fabulous as always.

And shishitos:

null

Someone requested deviled eggs. Always happy to have eggs:

null

When we sat down, Sue said: ďItís just like Iíve seen on Sour Cherry Farm!Ē

Christian is trying out a new recipe for Cocas, which are basically Spanish pizzas. This one has fig and gorgonzola. Um. Yeah.

null

null

As I mentioned, the fried mozz.

null

Itís got a crust on it, but is chewy underneath ó it almost squeaks. And then the sweetness and the herbs... great.

Clams with bacon. Also terrific.

null

Another look:

null

Garlicky scallops:

null

Kind of like that famous garlic shrimp tapa, but made with scallops. Always a twist going on at Peniche.

null

Delicious meatballs.

null

Pork and beef mixed. The cheese makes it a little bit like meatball parm. But better.

Patatas bravas. A classic:

null

And, for our final savory, the best sliders ever. With cabrales and spicy ketchup:

null

null

Dessert, too. This is a chocolate shake. So good:

null

Grilled pineapple. Good but not my favorite.

null

Chocolate mousse:

null

And afterward, Christian took us on a little tour of the kitchen. It was another great meal at Peniche ó so good that Gene said heíd like to make it a standing meal every time he comes to visit. Iíd say thatís a seal of approval indeed!
