We can offer the perfect alternative to chocolate eggs this Easter.
Torrija is a traditional Spanish dessert eaten at Easter time, similar to an English bread and butter pudding or French pain perdu. They are made of bread which is soaked in milk, syrup, honey or wine, sprinkled with sugar or cinnamon and then fried in olive oil.
Associated with Lent and Holy Week; the week just before Easter, torrija became a popular dish to eat as the egg, milk, bread and sugar compensated for the lack of meat in the diet whilst fasting over Lent. Our torrija is made from light brioche and we serve it with apricot coulis and vanilla ice-cream. We suggest pairing it with a glass of sherry nectar.
Torrija will be available as a special dish in our restaurants across the Easter weekend, from Friday 30th March to Monday 2nd April, priced at £5.50.
