Super heroes get a tapas treat
The sun has been shining and we do believe the temperature has rivalled those in some parts of Spain. In fact, we reckon it’s been hotter here! Our cosy corner of the Fens has been very busy. The annual Ely Hero Awards took place on Monday and Habis was honoured not only to be one of the sponsors but to provide the food.
No small feat being asked to feed the heroes and heroines of Ely and Cambridgeshire, who were out in force on Monday at the ceremony which was held at the Maltings in Ely (pictured). The event celebrated local people for their part in helping their community in various ways. You can read more about it here.
This Spanish restaurant, meanwhile, with the honour of catering the event, felt very proud to be cooking up a storm with the help of one of our star chefs (pictured below) for a big group of worthy people, but we didn’t do it on our own. We want to give a big shout out to Cherry Hill Chocolates for providing the amazing Jack’s Gelato coconut ice cream for our triple chocolate brownie, Manor Farm in Worlington for all the eggs and Tea for two, Ely for lending us some wonderful waiting staff. Gracias, gracias and gracias!!
Of course, you don’t need big glitzy events to eat out food. Tonight (Thursday) is paella night so…you better get on that phone. But if you don’t make it we will be taking our paella on tour – only locally – and the next gig is going to be the Ely Pride event. On Saturday, 10 August Ely will be celebrating the local LGBTQ community and our paella will be feeding the masses while they dance the day away!
More on the in a few weeks, but sad to say this writer needs a holiday, too, so next week I shall be stepping out of the Habis family and leaving Littleport behind and won’t be in this space. I will be heading off to Spain to gain some inspiration for our menu and will give you a little culinary tour of my Spanish food journey when I am back.
So, see you in two weeks – and don’t forget t order your rainbow flags! Adios!
