Hearing the word, “Sherry” might have you initially thinking of your granny, but we think this oft-maligned beverage is in line for a huge come-back with a younger crowd, especially with its cool Spanish assocation! Reading our minds, Tapeo are running a special month-long promotion where you can taste three types of sherries, each one paired with one of their delicious Tapas dishes for HK128 per person (plus service). The occasion is the Fiesta de Otono, a Spanish festival which is celebrated for the first three weeks of September, and which involves plenty of horses, sultry flamenco and sherry. As having horses in their restaurants would probably bother the customers, they’ve gone for celebrating with the sherry instead.
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
