Mauro Barreiro (La curiosidad de Mauro restaurant Cádiz)

The chef Mauro Barreiro will convert room 35 of the Kursaal into a corner of the province of Cadiz within the programme of the 19th San Sebastian Gastronomika International Congress 2017. This cooking show workshop will showcase products from the Cadiz region, sea and mountains, marrying them up with sherries. India, the guest country at this year’s congress, will be represented in the preparation of the dishes. The chef will enhance the local products with a geographical tour of the Cadiz region. From the Sierra de Grazalema bathed in green vegetation, he will continue on through the dense fog that descends to the coast until meeting the fine sand on the beaches, embraced by rocky cliffs, where the aquamarine colour of the Atlantic merges into a kiss with the Andalusian sun. That is Cádiz and it needs to be shown to the world! Sherries are the best accompaniment for freestyle, bold, tasty cooking like Mauro Barreiro’s. José Ferrer, the ambassador for sherries at Gastronomika, will show us how these wines “interact” on the palate with each ingredient from the dishes, multiplying the dining experience of the participant. The versatility of these wines allows them to accompany ingredients which are impossible for other wines with surprising results.
