The extreme weather along the Atlantic coast almost cancelled this event, but thanks to Fresh Direct a first barnacle tasting in Bangkok was made possible.

Saline and juicy, this creature from the rock is really unique. After a quick boil, it can be devoured by itself or dipped in roasted garlic aioli as Quince’s Chef Blair suggested.

Pairing regional food with a local wine makes sense, and the Albarino, despite being richer than normal, added the extra flair. Balanced, well rounded, with lemony aromas and good fruit, this made for a fun experience.
