Tasty times

It must be very hard to come up with new ideas to celebrate the fiesta in August. This one is totally unique, a cooking competition with grandfathers and their grandchildren working together pitting themselves against  others to produce a winning local dish. Sounds fascinating and tasty!!

Taking part will be contestants from; Catral, San Miguel de Salinas, Cox, Orihuela, Rafal, Granja de Rocamora, Bigastro, Algorfa, Redován, Dolores, Albatera, Benjúzar, Benejúzar.


The contestants must cook a typical recipe of their town with a minimum quantity for 4 people, from which they will present two servings for the jury's evaluation. A portion for plating evaluation and another portion divided into 5 mini portions for tasting / evaluation by the jury.

They will have 30 minutes to to buy the products that they are going to use in the shops or food market of the municipality. (This time or rule may be modified based on the location proposed by the municipality) The cooking time will be a total of 2 hours.

Contestants must bring all the necessary utensils for the preparation of their own recipe, except those provided by the organization, which are the following: 2-burner stove, sink, butane gas necessary for all cooking, cutting board and knife, aprons, kitchen paper, masks, gloves, gel, aromatic herbs. The cost of the ingredients is borne by the participants. If the organizing municipality wishes to make a financial contribution to each participant, it may also do so.
