Screened in one of our intimate private dining rooms, accompanied by an eight-course menu designed by our Head Chef Yahir Gonzalez to bring the movie to life.
Contemporary Spanish restaurant, aqua nueva, is proud to present its inaugural ‘Aqua Nueva Movie Menus’ event this September 27th. The 1992 comedy/drama Jamón Jamón will be screened in one of the restaurant's intimate private dining rooms, accompanied by an eight-course menu designed by Head Chef Yahir Gonzalez. The playful and creative menu encapsulates certain scenes from the film, with a view to surprise and delight diners throughout the evening.
Upon arrival, guests will enjoy a typical Spanish Sangria before the lights are dimmed and the film begins. Each dish on Gonzalez’s quirky, and sometimes even amusing, eight-course menu will showcase the best in Spanish cooking, and will be served to guests at specific points during the film to encapsulate what is being displayed on screen. From DIY tacos to short rib of beef, with boozy amuse-bouches to wash it all down, guests will be served a generous selection of plates with plenty of tongue-in-cheek surprises along the way.
Jamón Jamón is a Spanish drama directed by Bigas Luna and starring Javier Bardem, Jordi Mollá and Penélope Cruz in her debut film. The story follows the firey and complex relationship between Silvia (Cruz), Conchita (Stefania Sandrelli), José Luis (Jordi Mollá) and Raul (Bardem), while exploring wider themes of class, sex and food. At aqua nueva, guests will eat their way through the deepest, darkest regions of rural Spain, as the flavours and smells depict the surrealist action on screen. Food is a leading reference point during Jamón Jamón, from Goya-esque fight scenes to potato omelettes, garlic, and ham; a fitting first film in this series of screen eats.
The Jamón Jamón menu will be priced at £70pp (nonrefundable). Tickets will include a welcome drink and wine pairing.
