It’s fair to say there has been a lot interest recently in London though for Croquetas; mainly because of the ongoing success of Jose Pizaro and using his recipe as the base for these I can certainly see why! For me they are an ideal drinking snack and really come to life when eaten burning hot with an ice cold beer.
My local deli was out of Iberico when I was shopping last week so I had to go a little rogue from his original recipe but I’m extremely happy with the results. For recipe guidance check out what Felicity Cloake has written here.
Proper lazy blogging this but I don’t think I could explain it any better so I won’t. As I’ve used Chorizo you’ll need a drop less olive oil and I added a healthy handful of Grana Padano to my roux mix as well to beef up the savoury edge.
Job done; time for a lie down...
