ENTERTAINMENT Food, more food, and yet more food. It's a food festival! But it's also a celebration of other things 'Gibraltarian'.

Whenever people have settled on this Rock of ours over the years (/centuries) they've brought with them their own foods and recipes from their homelands, but also their own arts & crafts. We think this has and continues to enrich our lives, and so Calentita celebrates our cultural diversity. On Saturday you'll be able to enjoy some of the best live music, dance, and entertainment on offer. Our craftsmen and women will also be out in force, so make sure you browse their stalls to take in their creativity.

MARKET PLACE MUSIC, ART & COOKING

JAZZ FRIENDS 7.00 and 10.15pm

CALENTITA KITCHEN (LIVE)

MATT, THE LOUNGE / ROCK CHEF 9.00pm

There's an art to providing the soundtrack to a bustling evening and these guys have got it sussed. For a few years now, Anselmo & co have played their jazz standards at Calentita - they're part of the team. Stop to listen and let your mood be lifted.

VIJAY VATVANI, GATSBY’s 7.45pm You’re probably familiar with his nearby, popular restaurant Gatsby’s; you might have seen him on TV also. Come to see Vijay kick-off our live cooking sessions at Calentita!

DANIEL CHIAPPE - ROCK CHEF 2014 WINNER 9.30pm

SPOKEN WORD 8.15, 8.45, 9.15, 9.45pm Words - where would we be without them? Probably a cave. But thankfully, our ability to use language is such that we can discuss and share everything from minutiae to big ideas. Gabriel Moreno and Jonathan Teuma are local wordsmiths; poets who make an art out of stringing together words in just the right way to help us feel and understand. Come, listen.

ROCK CHEF In recent months, the Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses has again teamed up with GibMedia and GBC on Rock Chef. This was Series 2 and it saw keen amateur chefs go head to head in the kitchen. Under the guidance of professional chefs Vicky Garcia Bishop and Matt Birtwistle, 31-year-old accountant Daniel Chiappe emerged as the winner. Now, with the pressure off, Vicky, Matt and Daniel will join us to share some tips on how to be a chef on the Rock. VICTORIA'S CREATIVE CATERING / ROCK CHEF 8.30pm

EL CAPOTE FOOD & WINE NIGHTS 10.00pm El Capote's Ian Gareze & Chef Lede believe things in the kitchen should be done methodically but with flair. They've been capturing the imaginations of local foodies at their recent Food & Wine Nights. At Calentita expect a preview of their Food and Wine Nights menu for the summer, celebrating almadraba tuna. And wines to match! PEPE PALMERO 11.00pm Pepe became a household name with his TV show "Pepe's Pot". He's a real character, a passionate llanito! And he thinks young people aren't cooking enough calentita. So he's going to show us how it's done, in inimitable Pepe style, "for my mother".

Despite that, the GNDO is both helping to run a food stall and showing off some of its performers' skills. For their flexibility, energy & rhythm - but also for their commitment to Calentita - give these

guys an extra big round of applause!

ART IN MOVEMENT 10.30pm Last year these guys wowed the Casemates crowds with a cirque de soleil style performance called Herbs & Spice. Nathan Conroy and his team are again promising an innovative production; an original show blending martial arts, dance, acrobatics & percussion. Not to be missed!

ADAM ORFILA 11.15pm Adam is a classically trained guitarist – he has been studying music from

the age of six and recently graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. He has trained with a number of internationally renowned guitarists, and now teaches music locally. Expect a Calentita masterclass!

HEADWIRES 11.45pm They're the coolest and hardest working young band around. Their debut EP 'Organs' has been universally praised for the maturity of composition, the lyrics and the sheer musicianship (which belies the trio's tender years). Don't miss Evan, Patrick & Daryl's performance - guaranteed to be fresh!

MISS GIBRALTAR 2014

SHYANNE AZZOPARDI "I think nowadays we live to eat instead of eat to live. A balanced diet is very important in my daily routine, my diet consists of a high protein and a low carb diet. My favourite food has to be pasta! However, during the Miss Gibraltar pageant I had to make sacrifices and not eat pasta too often. During my Miss Gibraltar journey I concentrated on having 5 to 6 small meals a day and having plenty of water. I have to be honest I can't choose one particular food I am looking forward to most at Calentita. As the beauty of this day is the wide variety of choice this event has on offer. This day shows off our multicultural society, which is brilliant!"
