I love all vinegars but at the moment I adore spanish sherry vinegars.I think its because they are so mild at the same time Im really into the good spanish sherry wines for cooking.There is a cook book out now called El Farrol out of Santa Fe one of the the oldests restaurant and bar in Santa Fe. Ive actually dined there as Im from New Mexico.I used their recipes on my winter job in Texas and they were a major hit. Its all about the Tapas which I made a few of the sherried mushrooms,spinach with raisins,and pasta with roasted poblanos,pinons and spanish mancheago cheese ?were amazing I also made the roasted duck with moroccan carrot sauce but I added more cinnamon and lemon to pull the flavor out.The recipes remind me of Indian Food but much less complicated.
Its amazing how many tapas they have, Iv'e never had squid that was not deep fried[calamara?] it was sauteed and it was awsome very much like lobster to me .I was quite impressed.Their specialty is Paella they have a few adobe rooms or a great outside patio it was a blast.
The bar is quite funky and alot of locals go there ,avoid them if you can as they are very territitorial of course if you choose to stay after dinner as 3 of my girlfriends did you can dance your butt off all night.
