Can anyone can help me discover the recipe for a fine dinner had at an upmarket, very civilized hotel restaurant in 1975 (yes, I know- most of you were born since then) in Cartagena near the waterfront. It was designed with an open square nestled in the center of the building and the dozen or so floors of rooms were above the dining area arranged on mezzanine-type floors from which one could look down on the diners. The dish was a stuffed squid casserole. There were about 10, 6-inch squid tubes stuffed with chopped tentacles, shrimp and other bits and pieces, baked in a tomato sauce topped with a cheese and crumb gratinée under a boiler. The whole thing was quite a treat. If anyone remembers the restaurant (I know there is not much to go on) or a recipe that might approximate this, please have a go here and I will try it. Thanks.
