2006 IE Gourmet Club activities

Escrito el 21 diciembre 2006 por Alumni en Affinity

The Gourmet Club 2006, coordinated by João de Sousa Barroca, David Millán, Susana Sariego and Christopher Perras, all IMBA06, has organized a series of 4 events this year to display the rich gastronomy and wine culture of Spain.
First, in November 2005, the Club hosted a wine tasting by Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen (CRDO) Ribera del Duero, a region famous for its intense reds, full of ripe aromas and elegance – one shouldn’t expect less from the region home to Vega Sicilia’s reputed wines!
Shortly thereafter the Club welcomed the turrón makers “Hijos de Manuel Pico Llórens” of Jijona, a family owned company that presented a wide variety of the typical Spanish delicacy and demonstrated how they manage to keep the manufacturing authentic.
In April Mr. Agustín Lago from CRDO Rías Baixas conducted a wine tasting of this Galician denomination, renowned for its superb, fruity whites. He presented four Albariño wines, including a rare bottle served at the Wedding Reception of HRH the Prince of Asturias!
Finally, in July the Club hosted Ms. Carmen Aumesquet from CRDO Jerez. After the «Jerez discovery» session, all agreed with Shakespeare’s famous quote: «If I had a thousand sons, the first human principle I would teach them would be to abjure all insipid drinks and dedicate themselves to sherry wine» .
We thank all these sponsors for making possible the IE Gourmet Club!!!
