Romesco Sauce

Romesco is a classic Spanish sauce made with red peppers, almonds, garlic and tomato, and variations on this combination. In this wd50 version, it is made with fermented black garlic, roasted almonds, chipotle peppers, and the sauce is given a velvety smooth texture with the addition of xanthan gum, which prevents the sauce from separating (the xanthan can be omitted and you will still have a great sauce).

      Directions

      Combine the garlic, almonds, and chipotle pepper in a food processor and blend. Once the desired texture is achieved, add the oil. Finish with the xanthan gum.

      Cook's Note: We recommend serving the sauce with fish, meat, or poultry. It works well as an accompaniment for protein cooked on the barbecue. It can also be used on sandwiches if you thin the sauce with a little water.

        amazing recipe, however i was very confused to the one part of this episode where they showed a chef who had copied the world famous Ferran Andria, from El Bulli. the olive, the cotton candy and so on. his restaurant The Bazaar was a complete replica of El Bulli.
