hosted by The Last Days of Pisco
This August weekend sees The Last Days of Pisco taking up residence at Curio Cabal, an earthy haven of a coffee shop in Hackney, shielded from it's prime location on the Kingsland Road by a thriving window boxed terrace.
We'll be serving pisco cocktails alongside a selection of small cups of ceviche between 6pm and midnight on Friday, and starting a little earlier at 4pm on Saturday.
The bar will be serving cocktails, beer and wine to anyone who turns up unannounced and thirsty on the night... However, it's a different story with food - if you'd like to eat our ridiculously fresh ceviche, a selection of fish marinated in citrus and vinegars, then you MUST BOOK A TICKET.
What your ticket gets you:
Ceviche - a taster of three to be precise, all served in cups. These are:
- Sea bass, lime milk, aji amarillo chilli, parsley, red onion, ginger, garlic and candied orange peel
- Sea trout, wild honey and tarragon cider vinegar, peas, watercress and crispy trout skin
- Scallop, lemon juice, pickled cucumber, strawberries, black pepper and mint
Other food will be available to buy at an extra cost.
MORE ABOUT THE FOOD
The chefs will be curing their seafood - seabass, trout and scallops - in a selection of citrus and flavoured vinegars. Expect some quintessentially British flavours alongside the usual South American ones, from seabass marinated in fresh lime juice and spiced up with ginger and chilli, to trout marinated in tarragon cider vinegar, sweetened with heather honey, joined by local greens like watercress and pea shoots, and topped with crispy trout skin.
Toasties, snacks and sweet things will be available to buy on the night.
MORE ABOUT THE DRINK
As our name suggests we're only serving one spirit, pisco - an unaged grape brandy from South America - but in oh-so-many ways. Drink it in an enlivening pisco sour, a Piscopalian (a twist on the Negroni), a Pisco Inferno (think chillis)... Beers and wine will also be available.
Your cooks for the evening are Hen (@HenriettaClancy) and Steph (@StephanieBoote).
