Island food and wine for Madrid
More than 100 kilos of food and 264 bottles of wine have been sent from Tenerife to Madrid to highlight the island’s cuisine.
Three top chefs prepared and served special dishes at the FITUR international tourism fair. Their guests included top food critics and travel writers.
Tenerife Cabildo vice-president and tourism chief, Carlos Alonso said this was a great opportunity to promote the island’s cuisine, wines and top quality chefs.
The three chefs were Juan Carlos Clemente, Braulio Simancas and Seve Diaz. Their dishes included Canary potatoes with mojo sauce, fresh fish and traditional desserts. The wines represented all five designations of origin in Tenerife.
During FITUR, the three chefs talked about their dishes on Spanish TV, another major promotion for Tenerife.
