Flamenco Tablao: Primitivo Daza and Chef Johnny Hernandez Dinner
June 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm - $150
Join us as we transform The Pearl Stable into a Spanish-inspired “tablao” to showcase dynamic entertainment and great culinary fare. Madrid is home to renowned flamenco tablao including Café de Chinitas and Casa Patas. Doors open at 6 p.m. and performance begins at 6:30 p.m.
Primitivo and his dance company, Pure Flamenco, travel all the way from Madrid to share the soul of Spain with San Antonio. The flamenco tradition has roots in Southern Spain and this dynamic performance includes five musicians—two guitarists, two singers, and one cajón—and three dancers. Primi is a national treasure in his homeland: he has been a solo dancer for The National Dance Company of Spain and has performed in operas, Spanish cinema, and in theaters worldwide. His company includes some of the most famous figures in the flamenco tablao scene. Olé!
Chef Johnny Hernandez creates a dinner worthy of the occasion—complete with a Paella cooking demonstration. The evening begins with passed Spanish tapas—Manchego con membrillo, Gazpacho shooters, and Croquettas de Jamón—and dinner is served family-style. The menu features a tomato and caper salad, Paella Valenciana (Spanish rice with mussels, Spanish chorizo, tender chicken and pork belly), Spanish Green Beans, Champinones al Ajillo (Spanish brown button mushrooms), Grilled Baguette with Olive Oil and Sea Salt, and Flan de Naranja. Full bar service to include Spanish wines, Gin Tonics, and Sangria.
