18 establishments on the Costa da Morte will offer menus and dishes based on local zero-kilometre gastronomy, which can be enjoyed during the weekends from October to December.
The official presentation event of the campaign took place in the kitchen classroom of the Comprado de Abastos, with a showcooking by the chef Braulio García from the Centro Superior de Hostelería de Galicia.
Yesterday, the official presentation of the campaign "Months with R, a safe bet" took place in the Mercado de Abastos of Santiago de Compostela, with an event organised by the Association of Tourism Professionals of Costa da Morte (APTCM), which brought together a variety of personalities from the hospitality sector of the Costa da Morte and representatives of different public administrations.
The campaign "Months with R, Safe Bet" has the support of the Department of the Sea, Agader and Tourism of Galicia and aims to promote the local zero kilometre gastronomy of the Costa da Morte, during the weekends of the months of October, November and December, a season when seafood is at its best.
