Help with Spanish themed meal

cleopatra999 | Jan 17, 2013 02:14 PM

I am hosting 6 of us for a wine tasting/Spanish meal. I am not familiar with cooking Spanish food and our fresh seafood is severely lacking.

I really have no clue about Spanish food, but have some ideas here for what I want to serve:

nibbles: (I have a hunk of manchego that needs to get used up? Have made manchego/chorizo puffs in past, could do that again)

appetizer: seafood??? I would love to do clams or mussels, I may be able to order them in at my grocery store. OR should I do a salad here?

soup: chilled or hot almond soup (I need a recipe)

main: meat (chicken or beef, lamb or veal is a potential, but maybe too expensive), what starch/veg to serve?

dessert: I have no clue? Maybe a flan?

Once I have the menu, I will work on wine pairings.

definitely want to make as much ahead as possible.

NO olives, legumes, artichokes, avocado or eggplant
