Northern Spain has a long tradition of male only gastronomic societies where beret-wearing moustachioed chaps gather to cook, eat, drink fine wines, sing traditional songs and presumably moan about their wives. It sounds great! One group in particular decided in 1973 to start their own vineyard which has developed into the award winning winery Bodegas Beronia. The Beronia people have come up with the bright idea of recreating these ‘Txoco’ events in a fun way in London and that’s why Fiona and I found ourselves heading to Boqueria which has a reputation for being south London’s finest tapas bar.
