Fórum Catas de Vino!


Crisp, Delicious and FANTASTIC!  With so many wines to try it is hard to know which one will be your new favorite.  Galicia is known for its 5 famous wine regions all unique, breathtakingly beautiful and full of tradition.  From ancient times to modern Galician wine makers, experts, and wine lovers have sipped, swirled and savored some of the best wines that Spain has to offer.  Three fantastic days of Catas de Vino in the Fórum Gastronómic Coruña ’14 congress had everyone learning, tasting, and talking of what they love of WINE!

Fórum Gastronómic was an intensive 3 day event that has everyone excited about new gastronomy creations and experiences.  For more information please visit:http://www.forumgastronomic.com – http://www.dehesa-extremadura.com/index.php/en/

Jamoneros de Fórum!


Three of my favorite flavors to enjoy in Spain have been Vino Tinto, Queso Manchego, and Jamon. Part of the traditional diet of spaniards it has become a weekly ritual of enjoyment for me during my time living in Galicia. Once you have tasted this magical combination you can see why it is enjoyed by all who are fortunate to discover it.  This is a habit that would be hard to give up. Discovering your favorite Jamon is like finding your favorite wine a treasure hunt that always provides delicious SURPRISES!

A very special thank you to our Fórum friends Jamoneros Jesús Gonzalez (Dehesa De Extramadura) and Clemente Gomez (Los Pedroches) who so graciously spoiled us for three days at Fórum Gastronómic Coruña ’14.
