29 Mar Corvina REX, leading the Valencia Culinary Meeting
During a whole week, nine outstanding Valencian restaurants have created, in association with a guest chef, original four-handed menus which emphasized a return to the raw material.
It was within the framework of a gastronomic festival, known as “Valencia Culinary Meeting”, which this year celebrated its second edition, consolidating itself as a meeting in which, in the words of its organizers, the local and the world’s avant-garde products perfectly match.
A commitment to local and worldwide cuisine in which Casa Montaña has participated among others. It is considered one of the most traditional establishments in the city, located in the popular neighborhood of El Cabanyal.
The main course of their special menu for these gastronomic days has been a Corvina Stew with aromatic herbs and leek created by Emiliano García, owner of the historic winery, and the Lithuanian chefs Ernestas Viršilas and Tadas Eidukevičius.
Two exponents of the tradition of Lithuanian cuisine, influenced by French and British cuisine, which have united tradition and modernity under the inspiration of a product as versatile as it is exquisite: Corvina REX Frescamar.
