José’s latest menu centres around a butifarra paella to share. To make it, José fries butifarra, a Catalan pork sausage flavoured with pepper, along with paella rice until golden. He then adds rich, housemade chicken stock, caramelised red peppers and broad beans to the rice, before the paella ready to be baked in the oven. “One of the most important steps in making a paella is to rest it before serving,” explains José, “this allows all the flavours to really mingle together, and any excess moisture to be absorbed into the rice so the texture is just right.”

Alongside the paella, a salad of English tomatoes is garnished with Empeltre olives and dressed with salmorejo — a thick gazpacho-like sauce of tomato, bread and oil. There’s also sourdough, served with Arbequina olive oil from José’s home of Extremadura.
