This September 25 and 26, the Auténtica Premium Food Fest will be held in Seville, an event dedicated to the Mediterranean diet and premium products, which will turn the Andalusian city into the capital of haute cuisine during these days. As a prelude to this festival, more than 50 prestigious starred chefs from all over Spain held an exclusive retreat at Dehesa Majeavija (Seville). This is the first retreat of this level to be organized in Spain.
Its main objective was to bring together in the same space the culinary professionals who are capitalizing on the global gastronomic talent in order to weave synergies and be inspired by sharing experiences, as noted in a statement by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development. Among the chefs who gathered were Fernando Arjona, chef of La Finca; Miguel Cobo, chef of Cobo Estratos who took the first star in Burgos; María José San Román, chef of the restaurant Monstrell; Nandu Jubany, multidisciplinary chef who has nine restaurants, a catering service and presence in distribution; or Naoyuki Haginoya, executive chef of NOMO Group, among many others.
During the day, the professionals had the opportunity to learn about the culture and traditions surrounding the fighting bull, as well as to enjoy training sessions on the tentadero. They were also accompanied by the General Director of Industries, Innovation and Agri-Food Chain, Carmen Cristina de Toro.
