Culinary 2019, which will be developed from the next October 14th to 18th in the Convention Center of Havana, will be a perfect opportunity to show the qualities of Cuban cooking and to learn from the experiences of several nations.
Food of the Island is delicious due to its flavor and its coloring and in the latest years the innovation and creativity have grown up; it was affirmed in the press conference by Eddy Fernández, president of the Federation of Culinary Associations of the Republic of Cuba (FACRC) and the organizer committee of the event.
What we are defending is our miscegenation, and the mixed soup that we are, it was pointed out by Fernández who explained that the festival is comes back after a decade of its last edition and will be dedicated to the 500 Anniversary of the San Cristobal Villa that will be celebrated next November 16th.
The event will not be competitive, because its principal goal is joining to professionals and students from all over the world with the aim of interchanging ways of doing food, he explained.
The agenda of the meeting includes magisterial lessons, workshops of debates, culinary hall, barman show, sommelier encounter.
Besides there will be an associated exposition, where all people interested in promoting their products, equipments, services, publications and other themes related to the gastronomic activity, with independence of the home country, can participate through a contract of service with the FACRC.
