Navarra Gastronomic Week in NYC

Submitted by on February 15, 2011 – 12:50 amOne Comment

Prepare your palate for piquillo red peppers and rosado wine, Road Trips Foodies! For eight days (February 20 through 27, 2011), The Kingdom of Navarra, Spain will visit New York City for a gastronomic celebration. Restaurants will offer menus highlighting Navarra’s unique traditional dishes and local wines.

Chefs in restaurants throughout New York will prepare menus including Navarran dishes such as: warm partridge and jabugo ham salad, artichokes fried with tocino (jabugo ham fat), piquillo red peppers stuffed with meat or fish, pochas beans, roast suckling pig, sautéed wild mushrooms and white asparagus, lobster, puff pastry with potato, foie and sweet wine sauce. Compliment these Spanish regional flavors with a Navarrese wine, of course, choosing a wine from one of the many Navarran vineyards to accompany an entrée, tapas or some Navarran cheese; a Roncal, or Idiazabal.

Participating restaurants in New York are listed online.

The region of Navarra in the north of Spain borders the Basque Country, La Rioja, Aragon, and the Pyrenees which makes it a vital part of El Camino de Santiago, (Saint James Way). This ancient kingdom’s rich history leaves its legacy within medieval villages and festivals such as the famous San Fermin in Pamplona – nine days of bull running celebrated each July and immortalized by Ernest Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises.

“The Kingdom of Navarra, Spain, Visits the United States” is sponsored by the Government of Navarra and the Navarra Chamber of Commerce.

Wanna taste the food in situ? Information on visiting this Spanish region is available online.
