Black Olive Cerveceria draws its inspiration from classic Mediterranean flavors in its new repertoire of Mother's Day dishes, with the freshest seafood and salads to hearty and comforting entrees. From May 9 to May 16, 2014, you can sample these new dishes, and make your Mother's Day celebration even more special. Begin with Black Olive's tasty Porchetta, Watermelon, Melon, Pine Nuts, and Arugula with Fig Balsamico Vinaigrette (P 335), a refreshing and flavorful salad and a perfect starter. Tender and juicy slabs of porchetta combine well with fresh melon, watermelon, and balsamic vinaigrette for a sweet and salty blend, and pairs well with a glass of Bajos Rosado Tempranillo.
Then, follow it up with Black Olive's Grilled Octopus with Baby Potatoes, Arugula, Pimenton, Rock Salt and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (P 210), another light starter with bold flavors. The octopus is perfectly grilled, remaining tender with just that subtle briny hint blending with the nutty olive oil. Best paired with a Montrouge Rose.
For the mains, Black Olive offers the Beef Bourguignon with Bacon, Mushroom, Confit of Pearl Onion, and Rice Pilaf (P 485), a rich and comforting dish with tender beef in a rich sauce, best paired with a glass of Chateau D'Ourbenac. The mushrooms and onions add to the rich flavors of the sauce, and the fork-tender beef simply caps this dish.
Sous Vide Salmon with Truffled Summer Vegetables and Green Romesco (P 659), subtle and delicate flavors from the perfectly grilled salmon and vegetables combine for fresh and clean flavors that pair well with Cano Rosado Tempranillo. The grilled salmon is perched on a creamy dill sauce that complements the fresh flavors of the salmon. Each component of the dish, with its distinct notes, provide a palette of flavors that just blend so well together.
Confit of Bacalao with Black Risotto (P 565), rich flavors elegantly plated, and this one simply tastes as good as it looks, best complemented by a glass of Chateau La Gravelle. The soft, perfectly grilled Bacalao's subtle flavor is balanced by the bold notes of the squid ink risotto. The squid ink risotto's flavors do not overpower the Bacalao for a perfectly balanced dish.
And no celebration would be complete without dessert. Black Olive's new Banana, Hazelnut, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Pan Pizza with Whipped Mascarpone (P 315) is a unique treat to end your Mother's Day feast. The cast iron skillet and wooden board conveys the rustic yet rich flavors of the dish. A crisp and fluffy crust, the caramelized bananas and the sweet hazelnut and peanut butter is capped by an equally rich mascarpone for a medley of flavors.
From starters to mains to dessert, Black Olive's new Mother's Day dishes are perfect for that special family celebration. Black Olive Cerveceria's special Mother's Day dishes will be available starting May 9 up to May 16, 2014. Got plans for Mother's Day? Make it Black Olive Cerveceria.
