    Nothing beats a freshly prepared menestra de verduras. This is a classic Spanish dish often served in La Rioja and Navarra but sadly not seen in restaurant menus anymore. Menestra de verduras is a panache of seasonal vegetables cooked in stock and served with battered vegetables. In my recipe, I use fresh globe artichokes fried in a light tempura batter and serve the menestra in a delicious sauce made with garlic, oyster mushrooms, white wine and crispy ibérico ham.
