For the Love of Citrus

Spain’s famous city, Seville, is famous for many reasons. Not only is this where the legendary lothario, “Don Juan,” began to conquer the hearts of women across all Europe, but it’s also where opera’s sexy siren, Carmen, was a worker in the city’s old tobacco factory.

Add to that over 3,000 hours (yes, that number is correct) of sun a year and you’ve got a city that seriously sizzles.

Unsurprisingly, this over-abundance of sunshine also produces amazingly fertile land that yields some of the sweetest citrus in the world. In fact, this city has a love affair with citrus, using it in a variety of different preparations across breakfast, lunch and dinner and tapas, platos mayores and postre.

Experience a little bit of this bright, sunny heaven at Ecco‘s next Sunday Share—”Sevilla & Citrus”—on February 19 at 6:30pm. This communal dinner is the perfect place to end the weekend (or start the week, if you please) with a full plate of food, laughter and good conversation. The family-style meal includes:

  • Pickled olives
  • Croquetas with Serrano ham
  • Beet and potato salad with clementines and almonds
  • Moorish pork kebabs with blood oranges and mint
  • Sapelo Island clams cooked in sherry
  • Crispy Georgia shrimp with parsley and lemon
  • Andalusian cocido with oxtail, chickpeas and chorizo
  • Spinach with chickpeas
  • Tangerine sorbet with dark chocolate shavings

The cost is $35/person (including tax; excluding gratuity and alcohol) and tickets are only available online. But hurry, there’s not much room at this table—it fills up fast!
