It has been a great success in previous years, and the 7th Salon Gastronómico de Canarias will be held between 29 September and 1 October in the Recinto Ferial in Santa Cruz, on the left at the first main junction on the TF4, the road from the TF1 to the auditorium. The event was originally planned for May but has been postoned. Even though the fair is designed for professionals in the food industry, it is also open to the general public, and there’ll be 150 or so stands, with cookery demonstrations, equipment displays, interactive sessions, cocktail making workshops, ham cutting classes, wine tasting, etc.
Some 10,000 are expected to attend the event, about which there is more information on the Recinto Ferial’s website HERE. There is also a dedicated website for GastroCanarias generally HERE and Facebook HERE. There are some photos that I took at a previous Salon Gastronómico below: this food fair has everything from food trucks to top quality wines from the mainland made with grapes that were at one point almost extinct, and from cooking demonstrations and competitions to the occasional human-life-sized chicken … and if nothing else, they have paprika jam from Lanzarote that is sublime! THESE people know how to make jam!
