EXPECT the unexpected when “Crazy Bull” Miguel Maestre brings his Spanish flair to the Port City as part of a dinner at The Groove Train in Fremantle on July 25.

Maestre who will visit the Port City for the second time in as many months said guests to his Spanish-inspired dinner would be up for a night of fun, food and a few surprises.

“It is going to be a fun evening filled with food, flavour, music and heaps of cooking,” he said.

“I don’t plan at all and I just want to be myself so there will always be a few surprises.

“There may be music and dancing – anything is possible.”

The Living Room presenter said he loved returning to Freo because it reminded him of home and would be using much of the City’s produce as part of the night.

“I love the area, it reminds me of a fishing village feel and takes me back to Spain,” he said.

“I will be cooking the paella for everyone right in front of them.

“I like to cook it so I know that the I get the rice perfect with the crust and the seafood is perfect.

“We will be using all of our free range produce to deliver the best products like you would find and enjoy in Spain.”

Maestre said guests would be greeted by him and then enjoy a five-course interactive meal.

“We want to make people fee like they are in Spain and can leave loving the food, the flavour and the whole experience.

“Watch out I may sing La Bamba and I am very good at juggling lobsters.

“I want them to feel the value of the Spanish experience and leave full and satisfied.”
