Lanzarote, November 13, 2023.
The "Saborea Lanzarote" Festival, which will celebrate its tenth edition on November 25 and 26, brings together all economic sectors associated with Gastronomy
During the first nine months of the year, the Canary Islands have received more than 10 million foreign tourists, a figure that means an increase of 14% over the same period in 2022. In addition, data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) reflects an increase of the expenditure of 8.6%. These figures show the leadership of the Canary Islands in an increasingly demanding tourism market, a circumstance that forces destinations to reinforce their offer with additional values to the traditional proposal of sun and beach. In this sense, the Canary Islands and specifically the island Lanzarote has been committed for several years to complement its unquestionable landscape wealth with an exclusive gastronomy that contributes to feeding the entire island economy. In Lanzarote, the four branches of activity related to gastronomy (agriculture, fishing, distribution and hospitality) are put at the service of tourism, the true economic engine of the island. And, a faithful reflection of this philosophy is the 'Saborea Lanzarote' Food and Wine Festival, which will celebrate its tenth edition on November 25 and 26 in the Historical Complex of the Real Villa de Teguise. On this occasion the Festival will have the presence of stellar figures of the national gastronomic scene like the Padrón Brothers and Jordi Cruz. In addition, there will be the presence of Michelin star restaurants from Galicia, Portugal and the Canary Islands. During the conference, master demonstrations and interactive workshops will be held that will offer visitors a truly unique experience of haute cuisine. The president of the Lanzarote Cabildo, Oswaldo Betancort, has expressed Lanzarote's vocation to provide truly unique sensory experiences to everyone. visitors to the island. "What began as a modest gastronomic meeting - said Betancort - has transformed into a must-see event that enhances our culinary heritage and highlights the importance of Lanzarote and the Canary Islands on the world gastronomic map." Taste Lanzarote 2023 promises to be a meeting that will reflect the diversity and quality of the gastronomy of the different Canary Islands. The organizers hope to offer an exclusive experience to all those who have the opportunity to visit Teguise on November 25 and 26, 2023.
