Antonio Bennett, Executive Chef at La Tasca Restaurants, said:
Great food starts with the very best ingredients. We source much of our produce from regional suppliers in Spain and then lovingly prepare great dishes because we know how important traceability is to our customers in the UK. The Diamond Jubilee is an occasion for us to show how our own culture, customs and traditions can combine with British celebrations to create a true Spanish style fiesta.
