The Adeje department of economic development and job creation, under Councillor Manuel Méndez Martin, launched the November gastronomy programme this morning, the 9th year the event is taking place. Degusta.Me or ‘Taste Me’ promotes the richness and variety of local produce and culinary creations, showing why our gastronomy has become an integral part of the international profile of this part of Tenerife.
The main goal of the month-long programme of activities has always been to promote the culture of gastronomy in Adeje, valuing the establishments dedicated to good food, the people who run them and serve the public as well as the food itself, which, altogether, “without a doubt bring a large amount of added value to the tourist offer in the region”, said councillor Méndez Martín.
The Calle Grande and the Plaza de España will host a 8-hour event on November 24th, a food festival open to the public with tastings, drink, theatre, bouncy castles, acrobats, jugglers, live music, etc.
As in previous years the Tapas Route invites the public to vote for their favourite tapa from any of the 20 restaurants taking part using the forms in the participating establishments which must be stamped – and their votes will also see them entered into a draw for a selection of great prizes included an 7-day cruise courtesy of the ‘Zona Comercial Abierta Adeje Centro’.
During November there will be visits organised to the Montesdeoca cheese farm and the Finca Noel. The Food Trucks On Tour is also returning. Full details of the month’s activities and the tapas route can be downloaded, in English, from the Adeje council webpage (http://www.adeje.es/degustame/descargas). Members of the public who are interested in taking part in any of the courses and workshops that require prior registration should sign up soon as places will be limited.
