17 Mar Gastronomic contest at CSHM Madrid and Valencia starred by REX
During the program, the Center held the first edition of its “Gastronomic Competition to Promote Natural Product “. In which, in addition to Corvina REX, the students had to integrate in their elaborations nuts, saffron and craft beer (in combination or integrated into the recipe).
Itac Profesional, Safrina and Valentium were, respectively, the other brands that provided such raw materials.
The well-known brands Montesa and Churchill, on their behalf, provided a tableware of great elegance and quality that made the creations of the participants shine even more.
But without a doubt their imagination, their technical skills and the versatility of Corvina REX in the kitchen were the real ingredients of a contest that left the jury members, including Erika Moya, Product Manager of the brand, speechless.
The center of Madrid carried out the same activity in parallel and it was precisely there where one of the most surprising and tasty dishes was elaborated:Snorkel Nikkei.
Under this original name, Víctor Cuenca, showed an outpouring of his skills and good taste with his Japanese ceviche of Corvina REX, counting on the inestimable help of Guillermo Magro.
In Valencia Andrés Rengel got the highest score with his Royal Corvina REX, Saffron Bouillabaisse and Almond Crumbs. Another feast for the senses that captivated the demanding jury.
The authors of these two dishes, who obtained the First Prize in their respective centers, will be able to enjoy four home deliveries of Corvina REX, with maximum freshness, to inspire their recipes from the next seasons.
