180° Dining Spanish menu featuring Colorado products

My latest 180° class helped pull off a really nice dinner Friday night.  We featured a Spanish menu theme and used as many Colorado grown products as I could coordinate.  Once again the latest Deep Plate entry was due so I took advantage of our tapa dish to feature the cone they sent me.

We also put together a lamb and pork belly dish that looked like this.

All in all it was another successful student run dining event.  Thanks to all the students of the June 09 class for pulling off a nicely executed dinner.
