Sweet Lifetime Affaires

2 comments

When we talked about Christmas celebrations I told you about people, like myself, who let sweet traditions aside as they prefer some peculiar sweet thing that is his or her lifetime sweet love affair.

We have argued for Valencian wines and cavas from our own criteria but –above all– we respect and love professional wine people indeed, so we asked some of the most important wine people in town for their Chrismas wine and cava selection –a selection that obviously rules anytime!

Last time we welcomed Christmas, a time in which most big things seem to gravitate around food and drink, and some little things seem to have the unique power to pop Christmas up. We talked about how national traditional sweets, like Turrón in Spain, are the kind of food that pops Christmas up. In case [...]

“Valencia is a World Reference” for Paco Torreblanca

2 comments

When I told you about top confectioner Paco Torreblanca’s ephimeral art he had no shop in town and no plan in sight about it. I was pretty surprised some days on when I came to know that his team had managed to find the perfect place and were just opening one shop at Valencia –Conde [...]

Hi! Nice to see you again at our Turia Gardens walk! Last time we were hanging out at huge Head Park until eventually coming and resting at peaceful Botanic Garden.

Wines from Valencia: A Forceful Week for Utiel-Requena

No comments yet

  There was a time in which Valencian Community wines were completely under the radar not just at International but at National level, and were used just as wines in bulk or, as the cheesy legend said, to secretly increase the production of some other much more famous regions. Hopefully, that bush-league play has been changing [...]
