In Spain Food Sherpas we are delighted that we could participate and cooperate in the organization of the FAM/PRESS Trip for Turismo Andaluz and the Tourist Board of the Costa del Sol which has been carried out in Spain, on the occasion of the Cooking Cup Andalusian Cuisine in Malaga.
Since already 12 years the magazine EAT SMARTER (the second largest food magazine in Germany) in collaboration with the appliance company Siemens organizes one of most successful televised cooking competitions in Germany. This year’s edition began last February and is called Cooking Cup Andalusian Cuisine. Previous editions of this culinary event have been held in countries such as Italy, US (California), Thailand, the Caribbean and Germany.
On the occasion of the
Cooking Cup Andalusian Cuisine in Malaga,
Spain Food Sherpas prepared a very special visit
to the Atarazanas Market and various
traditional shops in the center of Malaga.
Within the activity program for the participants, companions, sponsors, the Eat Smarter team and other German journalists-bloggers specialized in gastronomy (greetings to Kochtopf!), Spain Food Sherpas prepared a very special visit to the Atarazanas Market and various traditional shops in the center of Malaga.
Following our team of Food Sherpas, our guests from Cooking Cup Andalusian Cuisine had the opportunity to discover and enjoy our local food, getting to know suppliers firsthand and the best seasonal products of Malaga’s vegetable gardens and orchards. They learned about the most characteristic fish of the coast like the “boquerón” anchovy, famous cold cuts like Jamón Serrano de Bellota, traditional ways of preparing local dishes, mouth-watering recipes and the basic principles of the Mediterranean Diet- characteristics that make our city of Malaga a capital rich in gastronomy.
But our route wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t taste some of the wonderful produce we saw. So the participants could enjoy some culinary delights of Malaga including a tasting of the Aloreña olive, almonds and figs and a refreshing selection of seasonal fruits of our region. In this case we had mango from our Axarquia area in the east of Malaga, sweet cantaloupe melon, “brevas” (a delicious type of fig) and tasty cherries from the village of Alfarnate, as examples of fruit with an outstanding quality produced in our province.
It was a real pleasure having them on our tour. Thank you very much!
