1st Jornadas Gastronómicas del Atlántico Medio, 3-17 December 2020

“Jornadas Gastronómicas del Atlántico Medio” is the first edition of a Canarian Gastronomy Campaign that is taking place simultaniously 3 of the Canary islands: Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Palma from the 3rd to the 17th of December.

In Lanzarote it’s organised by the Cabildo and Saboral Lanzarote under the very clever branding “IAM”, I am Atlántico Medio, referring to the space between the archipielagos of Cape Verde, Azores, Madeira and of course, the Canary Islands and flanked on the North-African coast by Senegal, Mauritania and Morocco and on the west, by the Iberian Peninsula with Portugal and the Northern Spanish region of Galicia.

The principal is the same than the usual “ruta de la tapa”: to showcase the local produce and the skills of the local chefs. However, it can’t really be called a tapas tour in the traditional sense as the 15 restaurants participating in our island are presenting either one or two full dishes, a total of 27 different ones.

The prices start at around the €9 in some case and go up to €69 for a complete menu in one case, most prices being below the €20 mark. The dishes can be marinated with a glass of local wine starting at €3.50 per glass and, again, in one case going up to nearly €9 per glass but the average price is around €4. Some restaurants are only stating the price per bottle, which makes me suspect that they might not serve it by the glass in those cases.

There is also a draw of 3 hampers of local products for the people that tastes the dishes. You enter by scanning a QR code on each restaurant that visit to taste their dishes and leaving your details on the website that pops up.

The Campaign’s website it mentions the restaurants cuisine style of each restaurant – which can come in handy if you are not familiar with that particular establishment, the participating dish/es , each dish base product, the producer/supplier, the history of dishes creation, allergens of the dish – very handy if you happen to suffer from any food allergies!), the wine pairing suggested and both the prices of the dish and the drink.
