Jornadas gastronómicas


 “The typical gastronomy of Algarve and Andalusia is rich, varied and very characteristic. It is also representative of a Mediterranean and balanced diet, as well as the national gastronomy of Spain and Portugal”.

This project was born with the intention of promoting the cultural and gastronomic heritage of the Algarve and Andalusia regions. Both areas are rich in high quality products and the aim is to promote fair and local trade of these products, which unites the two regions and reactivates the local economy.

The project emphasizes the importance of knowing products and promoting local consumption.

The day will focus on the promotion of products and will invite local producers, representatives of regional, local and regional public administrations and hotel companies, potential consumers of these products to incorporate them in their restaurants and hotels.

Two days will be held, one in Granada and the other in Vilamoura, with the aim of promoting local products. In Granada you will discover the products of the Algarve and in Algarve you will discover the products of Granada. The day will take place with tastings of products, explanation of the origin of the product, recipes and sale at the cost price of the products.
