13.5.17 Las Jornadas de la Sal y el Estero El Puerto de Santa María
The III edition of this fascinating gastronomic event will take place on the 6, 7, and 8 October at the impressive Bodega El Cortijo in Calle Pozos Dulces. All the best local restaurants and bodegas will be present as well as the distiller Rives and the brewers La Portuense and 15 & 30. Ham and salt producers will also be there. A major feature of the event is the “pescado de estero”, or fish and shellfish caught in small shallow gated seawater lakes which feed water to the salt pans. This tradition goes back beyond Roman times, and the quality of the seafood is such that it is in great demand from restaurants. It would be well worth making the effort to attend this event, where one can learn much and enjoy all sorts of gastronomy. The first 500 tickets, priced at 45 euros for the whole day, go on sale on the 15 May, available from https://www.ticketea.com/ and 500 more will be available on the 7 and 8 of October.
