Iraq today is a lot like Spain after its fascist dictatorship ended in 1978. Spain had mutually hostile provinces and well-armed terrorist groups. So what kept Spain from bloody anarchy? Clearly not the legions of U.S. troops stationed there. No, it was the fabulous food (it's hard to fight in a food coma). The Landmark Restaurant presents the cuisine that saved Spain with De la Tierra: Indigenous Foods and Wines from Spain Thursday at the Melrose Hotel, 3015 Oak Lawn Ave. Cost is $80 per person for a six-course meal (wines included), starting at 6:30 p.m. Call 214-224-3109 for reservations.
Thu., Feb. 16, 6:30 p.m.
