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.
