Foodie fusions, tastings and tapas!


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.

Two thousand tastes of Adeje


Adeje’s gastronomy month is well underway

One of the big events during the Adeje Gastronomy days during this month is taking place this Saturday, November 14th, with the Degusta.me (try my) fair in the Plaza de España in the town.

This week, at the official launch of the event, details of the annual Tapas Route were also announced, and organisers hope that these will introduce many new people to the delights of Adeje gastronomy. The Tapas Route will run from this Saturday until November 29th and between the two events organisers plan to serve over two thousand tapas to members of the public.
The councillor for economic development Manuel Luis Méndez Martín oversaw proceedings at the launch of the events alongside Pablo Pastor, well known chef and representative of the Canarian association of chefs and pastry makers (ACYRE), Efrén Santana from Grupo Miquel, Manuel Rodríguez Jiménez, technical director from the Abona wine denomination and chefs Carlos Clemente, Pablo Aznar, Yuned, Alexis García, Miguel Barrena, and Javier Mora, from some of the finest restaurants and hotels in South Tenerife.

Councillor Méndez Martin said that “the clear objective is to energise the restaurant sector in the borough as well as offering leisure alternatives for Adeje residents and those in general in South Tenerife.” He thanked the many hotels and companies sponsoring events, including Grupo Miquel, Gastro Market El Duque and the Hoteles Iberostar chain. “We are also grateful for support from Turismo de Tenerife, with whom we are working to let people know the culinary richness we have on offer in this part of the island. We are also delighted with the co-operation and participation of the many bars, cafeterias, and restaurants in the borough”.
The Degustame Adeje Fair will see over 30 stands in the Plaza de España with bodegas from all over the south of the island taking part, and cocktails courtesy of Tenerife Barmans Association. Food-wise there will be sweet treats, cheeses, breads, cakes, a huge variety of tapas, crepes, and much much more. The public can buy their Degusta.me tickets and then pick their tapas, or purchase a Degusta.me glass to sample many of the fine wines on offer.

The “Ruta de la Tapa Degusta.me Adeje 2015” (Tapas Route) works to promote the restaurant sector and encourage residents and visitors to use bars and cafes and restaurants as local meeting points as well as allowing them explore local gastronomy and discover new tastes and gastronomic inventions. The ‘route’ runs until the eve of San Andres and will end with a Show Cookery demonstration in the Adeje Farmers Market.

26 establishments are taking part in the Tapas route and you can vote for your favourites. There will be prizes for the best 5, 4 and 3 star tapas as well as some ‘special mentions’ and there will also be a draw for the public taking part with two prizes, a hotel overnight stay for two in an Iberostar hotel in Tenerife, and a meal for two in one of the participating establishments. The full list of participating restaurants, cafes, and bars is on the council webpage, www.adeje.es.

Have a nice meal, in Adeje!
