WELCOME TO THE LEMON AGE, CON LOS LIMONES DE ESPAÑA
El limón es una de las pocas frutas cuya temporada se prolonga durante todo el año, gracias, principalmente, a dos de las variedades con mayor producción en Europa: fino y verna. Este cítrico, tremendamente versátil, nos permite aprovechar todas y cada una de sus partes: su zumo, su pulpa, su corteza… e incluso su hoja.
AUTUMN, A MAGICAL TIME TO TRAVEL AND EAT IN SPAIN
Spain is famous for its Summers when thousands of tourists come to visit us for our extraordinary climate and our equally wonderful gastronomy. Spain is the country of light. The beaches are the Queens and the salads, vinaigrette salads, escalivadas (smoky, grilled vegetables) and chilled soups the princesses of the gastronomy.
SAYING WAITER IS TO SAY HOST
There are a number of rules, included in what we usually call “Protocol”. This series of “rules of behaviour” is something that every waiter or expert in the hotel and catering industry must know and practice. Nowadays, what we call “Protocol” in the catering service has evolved over the last years and there are many things to take into consideration.
VALDUERO & FERRARI, Passions that control our lives
good bottle of wine is a story, at times a legend. There are bottles of wine that survive shipwrecks and traverse the centuries, some are immortal and are auctioned at prices worthy of a Picasso. Wine is taste and knowledge, it is something seductive and exclusive. It is also enjoyment and fashion. That is why Ferrari and wine from the Valduero Winery is a perfect combination.
APHRODISIACS OR EROTIC GASTRONOMY?
From the beginning there has been a close relationship between gastronomy and eroticism. Men and women relate sexually to procreate and have offspring and, so conserve their species, and all their lives they need to feed themselves so as not to die. Sexuality and gastronomy are, therefore, both essential acts of life: the subsistence and maintenance of the species depend on them.
HOW THE ZODIAC SIGNS INFLUENCE GASTRONOMY
The term Gastrology, is used to define the study of the relationship between the horoscope and gastronomic preferences. The French doctor Louis Donnet, was who after studying more than 12.000 patients, published in 1987 a Zodiac for health, where he assigned each astrological sign a particular diet, which would be the most appetizing for those born under that sign, but also the healthiest.
