Mortzilla Dinner & Bingo
"Mortzilla", black pudding or blood pudding, is a sausage made by cooking blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled.
Sounds amazing, right? Well, the end of every October, when the Basque Block reeks of onion and garlic you know Mortzilla Dinner is upon us. Every year, more than 1000 blood sausages, as they are better known, are made and then eaten or bought for a later feast. Men and women take part in the entire process from planting leaks in the spring to harvesting them and carefully following the recipe to make each year's sausages a little better than the previous.
Typically, the event is held the first Saturday of November and preparation takes place the entire week before. If you are interested in learning more, stop by the Basque Center for specific times and dates. You can also help make them - email us at email@example.com.
Trust us. It seems odd, but it is quite the culinary treat!
After dinner, join us for Bingo with lots of prizes generously donated by local families and businesses!
See you there!
