Thursday, March 28: Celebrating the Arrival of the Elcano

The Spanish Royal Navy tall ship Juan Sebastian de Elcano will return to Pensacola on March 31 and stay through April 5 — the Elcano’s eighth visit to the city since its first in 1959. The Elcano last visited Pensacola in 2015, and drew thousands of visitors who toured the ship, the third-largest tall ship in the world. It is with this in mind that we will present a Spanish tapas-inspired class the Thursday before her arrival. Featured dishes include crispy Gorgonzola and phyllo sandwiches, peppadew- and anchovy-stuffed olives with flaky sea salt served on dried Roma tomatoes with fig balsamic reduction, chorizo-stuffed cremini mushrooms with grated Manchego cheese and a red and green heirloom tomato gazpacho shooter with avocado foam, chives, and lemon oil. Agua de Valencia, Andalusian Rebujito, Seville orange martini and classic Spanish sangria will complement the dishes. Additionally, Adelene Lovelace, former director of the Fiesta of Five Flags and El Cano host committee member, will give a brief history of the ship, logistics for her arrival and the importance of the visit. Participants will take home a bottle of house-made, lemon-infused olive oil as a takeaway from the event.
