Zaragoza’s gastronomy walks around Europe

Posted October 30, 2015 by zaragozaturismo in Gastronomy

Once again, Zaragoza Turismo works to promote the city and all its attractions. One of them is gastronomy and we show it to the world through Tasting Spain association, which is the first national platform with an international vocation to promote tourism and gastronomy.

It is formed by the Spanish Federation of Hotels (FEHR), the Spanish Association of destinations to promote gastronomic tourism, the European Organization for cooks (Euro-Toques), the Federation of Associations of cooks and confectioners of Spain (Facyre) and Paradores.

Last September 5th we participated on a showcooking in the Spain Pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan.

Félix Martínez, a professional ham cutter of the restaurant La Jamonería in Zaragoza, gave three lectures explaining the different types of ham, its nutritional qualities, conservation, tools to cut, etc. After that, he offered a tasting of serrano ham DO Teruel with bread and Extra Virgin Olive Oil DO Bajo Aragón Belchite, accompanied with wine PDO Cariñena. During the presentation, the attendees could see a presentation of pictures of Zaragoza that showed its cultural heritage, leisure and gastronomic places. Everybody enjoyed this complete experience.

Appart from that, on October 22nd took place the World Day of Tapas in Brussels. This event was organized by the Spanish Tourist Office of that city. Tourism professionals, European institutions, Belgian companies and the media tasted the wide variety of tapas from cities like Cambrils, Lanzarote, Valladolid, Segovia, Denia and Zaragoza, represented by restaurant El Candelas with a beef tripe with cream chickpea tapa.

These activities are the continuation of the one held in 2014 in Lyon at the Institut Paul Bocuse where gastronomy of the city of Zaragoza was presented by Novodabo restaurant, which has been recently awarded by the Royal Academy of Aragonese Gastronomy as the best restaurant of Aragón 2015.

We are pretty sure that our European neighbors will choose Spain and Zaragoza as their holiday destination.

Enjoy your meal!
