Taberna de Haro piquillos y brandada
Taste of Spain
BY LARYN IVY

Roasted red peppers and salt-cod brandade may sound like a peculiar flavor combination, but the delightful marriage of tastes and textures is definitely worth a try. And the chef at Taberna de Haro, an authentic Spanish taberna (bar) in Brookline, agrees.

The piquillos y brandada on the raciones (plates to be shared) menu are pillows of roasted Spanish red peppers stuffed with a lusciously smooth mash of salt cod, garlic, and potatoes, then dipped in batter, delicately fried, and drizzled with olive oil. Raciones are about double the size of a traditional tapa (a bigger tapa is always better, isnít it?) and are meant to be shared, family-style. But after your first bite of the crispy sweet peppers, with their creamy, garlicky filling, you may regress a bit to your sandbox days, pull the plate toward you, and scream, "Mine!"

Compose yourself, take a sip of sangria, and remember you can always order another.

Available for $11 at Taberna de Haro, 999 Beacon Street, in Brookline. Call (617) 227-8272.
