Flavours of El Hierro in new guide
Years of work have come to fruition with the publication of a new tourist guide “El Hierro, an island of flavours” aimed at promoting the agricultural products of El Hierro.
The venture is being described as an essential resource for the visitor who wants to “immerse themselves in the smells and flavours of our land while enjoying unparalleled nature and contact with its people and their hospitality”, according to president and tourism councillor, Belen Allende. “Primary sector, gastronomy and tourism have to grow together and value the local products, essential in haute cuisine.”
The guide, available in English and German, will be available in all the tourist establishments and hotels of the island. It highlights the main productions of the island – tropical pineapple, fig, quesadilla, wine , cheese, meat, fish, honey, gofio, olive oil, fig tuno, etc.- with a selection of carefully selected images which highlight the connection of these products, elements of identity, with the origins and traditions of the island.
The guide will also be available in digital format for free download.
