Forum Santiago 2012

The Forum of Santiago was held for the third year in the capital of Galicia Santiago de Compostela on 26, 27 and 28 February 2012 with an estimate of 15.000 visitors. With this new edition the Forum Santiago becomes the Spanish national gastronomic event . In the forum take place several activities: live cooking sessions, workshops and tasting for a small audience, guided tastings, lectures and debates, contests and prizes, product presentations of the exhibitors, culinary workshops for children
The forum has plenty of Spanish young chefs, and some top star like the Roca Brothers or Xavier Pellicer that held several Michelin Stars and likes work with biodynamic ingredients.

Also the Forum Santiago is a good platform to know the best wines of Galicia, personally I think is if the Galician winemakers stay working in the same direction soon Galician Wines will become one of the favourites wine region for wine lovers.

 The big news this year was the new gastronomic concept that the Roca brothers are working at the moment, having not enough to have already one of the best restaurants of the world’s El Celler de Can Roca
The new idea consists in having just twelve fellow dinners sit down in isolated dining room where they are going to enjoy  a kind of culinary opera. The dishes or aromas on the round table will be supported by video art and music with the idea to come together all the senses and following a common narrative.
Fran Abreu video artist and opera manager is helping with the project of the Roca Brothers that are looking for new paths to the avant-garde cuisine
