Culture and Food of Asturias
The Instituto Cervantes Dublin offers a vibrant programme open to all audiences and ages to enjoy Spanish culture in Ireland.
This enriching event will delve into the intricacies of Asturian cuisine, answer intriguing questions, and embark on a captivating journey through the food and culture of this unique region.
Presented by food writer Blanca Valencia, the talk aims to explore the region's best sidrerias (cider houses), renowned restaurants, producers and food markets. It will also offer the opportunity to learn about the fascinating cheeses from the region, and the influence of dairy on the region's delectable desserts, including the mythical rice pudding.
One of the highlights of the event will be the deconstruction of the iconic dish, fabada asturiana—a hearty bean stew infused with flavours of pork, black pudding, and saffron.
Capacity: 20 people
