Wide choice of activities at the Forum Gastronomico Coruña ’14
The Fórum Gastronómico Coruña’14. will be held from the 23rd to 25th of February. The gastronomy fair, an event of national reference in Spain, will be held for the first time ever in A Coruña. Estrella Galicia will be present at this new edition of the gastronomy fair, to be held in Expocoruña, as a main sponsor and with a diverse stand and a number of activities to be carried out throughout the duration of the fair.
The Forum Gastronomico de Galicia will see the first Estrella Galicia Galician Draught Beer Pulling Championship on Monday 24 February. This competition, the first of its kind to be held in Galicia, will take place throughout the morning at our stand and will have 30 participants. It is coordinated and supervised by Fernando Iglesias, Market Quality Manager of Hijos de Rivera SAU. The jury will be made up of beer pulling, catering, and gastronomy experts, who will be in charge of evaluating quality, efficacy and speed of service as well as the candidates’ knowledge of the characteristics of our range of products.
Alongside this championship, we will also inaugurate a new Beer Master Sessions exhibition programme, which will cover all the initiatives promoted by our company with the aim of improving the level of professionalism and excellence in the art of beer serving, through contests, master classes, courses, food pairings and beer pulling exhibitions.
