El Camino Del Vino – Los Corchos Prepares For Vendimia

We waited a long time for summer to arrive in Galicia and now it seems that soon it will be over as we are almost halfway through August… The Bodegueros – winemakers – will be paying extra close attention to Las Viñas – As VIDES – The Vines as they begin to make preparations for the special and important work of VENDIMIA – Wine HARVEST!  So it is countdown for Bo Camiño TASTE IT! and El Camino Del Vino as the friends of Los Corchos – “wine lovers” – await this very special celebration in the fields and for us it will be the Ancient Roman Vineyards of Ribeira Sacra – so looking forward to it. Another 4 year dream coming to life 🙂

A very special thank you to German Limeres for the wonderful ancient photo of TESOROS – to include in the poster and for your beautiful Bo Camiño TASTE IT! Logo sure makes blogging a whole lot more fun! For more information please visit: http://www.gastrofotographia.com

Bo Camiño TASTE IT! – Ponferrada La Noche Templaria

GASTRONOMY IN THE CAMINO

La Noche Templaria – The Night Of The Templar Festival – had us back out filming Bo Camiño TASTE IT! in Ponferrada.  The city so named for the “Bridge Pons Ferrata” that provided easier crossing for pilgrims who could choose from two different and important routes along the way. The Camino Francés that heads northwest to Villa Franca Del Bierzo or the Camino Invierño – The Winter way that heads west avoiding the snow topped mountains in winter of O Cebreiro the gateway into Galicia.

Jaime Pardo and Maria Santín of Imaxina Diseño, German Limeres of Gastrofotographia and I enjoyed meeting new people, taking in the atmosphere of the ancient town of Ponferrada and filming some of the unique gastronomy, fun festival events and ceremonies.  A very special thank you to Jesus who coordinated our activities and for meeting some wonderful people in Ponferrada including Gabriel Vallejo Carnero – La Destileria Bar, Maxi Campelo – Casa Las Bombas Restaurant, and Miguel A. Varela – Teatro Municipal Bergidum for including us in some incredible gastronomy and festival ceremonies.

Fórum Gastronómic – Standing Room Only!

_MG_5768

It was standing room only for the live demonstrations and events of this year’s Fórum Gastronómic Coruña ’14.  It is exciting to see the enthusiasm of the people of Galicia and their love of Gastronomy.  Here is a highlight of one of the introductions before the cooking demonstrations began.  It was shoulder to shoulder which makes for a little shaky video but you can see for yourself some of the excitement in the air that made Fórum Gastronómic fast paced, fun, educational and entertaining!
