Esparragos verdes con romesco - grilled green asparagus, drizzled in arbequina extra virgin olive oil from California Olive Ranch and served with traditional romesco sauce - a sauce of hazelnuts, almonds, roasted tomato, onion, and garlic
Chistorra con patatas al aceite de oliva - chistorra is a type of semi-cured sausage similar to chorizo, here it is skewered, grilled, drizzled in EVOO and served with mashed potatoes made with the same arbequina EVOO from California Olive Ranch
