Gastronomy Workshop: Cooking mushrooms with... Pedro Roca

Gastronomy Workshop: Cooking mushrooms with... Pedro Roca

[Gastronomy]
Abundant rainfall, humidity and soil quality make Galicia an ideal place for mushrooms. For mushroom lovers, the chef Pedro Roca imparts a gastronomy workshop on preparing a gourmet mushroom menu. Pedro Roca, who specialises in mushroom cuisine, is the chef of two Compsotela restaurants, 'El Caney' and the 'Araguaney,' which have hosted seven Arab cooking festivals and seven Mushroom Weeks. Each month the gastronomy workshops feature a different seasonal Galician product: mushrooms (November), octopus (December), seafood (January), Carnival cuisine (February) and lamprey (March). In the workshops, the best specialists of each month's product will cook their most outstanding specialities live, explaining in detail all the processes involved, so that each amateur cook can then repeat the experience in his or her own kitchen. All the dishes have been selected so that they can be prepared in a domestic kitchen. Each of the renowned chefs participating in the workshops will explain his recipes, providing different perspectives on each month's featured product, from traditional Galician recipes to the most innovative ones. These gastronomy workshops are included in the 'Santiago de Compostela. You'll Want More' programme, running from November 2007 to March 2008, which is aimed at promoting the best of Galician Gastronomy. Apart from gastronomy workshops, the programme features other activities such as gastronomy trips and special menus in associated restaurants, based on top-quality seasonal Galician products: mushrooms (November), octopus (December), seafood (January), Carnival cuisine (February) and lamprey (March).
