Cider Sunday: Txotx!
Since we're calling out cool cider events, let me offer a hearty Txotx! A week from today, on May 4, Bar Vivant on East Burnside is hosting an authentic, honest-to-goodness txotx feast. In the Spanish Basque country, Txotx (pronounced "choach" and rhymes with coach) is the celebratory feast that accompanies the ripening of local cider. I had the great pleasure to visit Gipuzkoa in January and wrote about Txotx here. For one day only, you'll get to sample the feast here in PDX:
- Finnegan Cider al Txotx
- Chorizo cooked in Finnegan Cider
- Salt Cod Omeletes
- Ribeye Bone In Steaks - served rare unless otherwise specified (grilled by The Parish)
- Idiazabal Cheese with Quince and Walnuts
- Ken’s Bread
