Eat Spain up!
CULINARY ARTS NEW YORK & WASHINGTON DC October
A Journey into Spain’s Food and Culture
Eat Spain up! is a three-day cultural festival that brings Spanish food culture closer to New York City and Washington, DC audiences. Eat Spain up! is a cultural initiative to bring Spanish food culture closer to the rest of the world by sharing the cultural essence of its gastronomy: its origins in the soil that shapes Spain’s land, its dependency on the people who inhabit it, and its contribution to society as an instrument of communication. This will be a virtual trip around the country to discover people from Spain and how they live from their food: what traditions they have kept and which they have blown to pieces to give birth to the new Spanish cuisine. The project brings together tastings, cooking workshops, screenings, art exhibitions, and round table discussions in New York City and will feature a cooking demonstration by Spanish chef Firo Vázquez in Washington, DC as part of the Delegation of the European Union’s monthly series Conversations in Culture .
