METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C; line a 12 x 12 baking tray with foil and brush with oil.
  2. Slice each individual chorizo into 3 rounds.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, spring onions, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs then whisk in the milk, cider vinegar, olive oil and sherry and oregano; leave for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture with gentle strokes to just combine.
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking tray and spread out evenly; press the chorizo rounds into the mixture, spacing evenly in a grid of 6 x 6 so that 36 bites can be cut.
  7. Bake in the centre of the oven until the cornbread pulls away from the edge of the pan and is firm to the touch (approx. 15 - 20 minutes); place the tray on a cooling rack and when the cornbread is cool remove the foil and cut the cornbread into bites and cover.
  8. When time to serve, thin the quince paste with a little warm water and gently brush over the individual squares.
  9. Top each bite with a salted Catalan almond and put out a bowl full to accompany.
