The Huelva delegation of the first Ibero-American Gastronomic Congress Binómico, has completed its visit to promote the event in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), with meetings with the ambassador of Spain in this country, Antonio Pérez-Hernández y Torra and the director of the Dominican Culinary Institute, Luigi Puello.
The mayor of Huelva, Gabriel Cruz, has described the meetings held in the Dominican country as very profitable, not only because they have given us a unique opportunity to promote the Congress and the city of Huelva abroad, but also because we have been able to establish new contacts and acquire commitments in order to close the programming of a first edition that will be dedicated to the Dominican Republic.
The mayor has expressed his satisfaction with the response of the institutions, the media and gastronomy professionals, who have shown great interest in an event that will serve to launch the Dominican cuisine and culture, in particular, and Ibero-American cuisine in general.
In this visit to Santo Domingo we have had the opportunity to verify the many points of connection between Huelva and the Dominican Republic, with which we share the variety and excellence of our products, a traditional recipe book itself renowned; and excellent professionals in the kitchen known around the world that we will have the privilege of enjoying in Binómico, said Cruz.
Finally, the mayor has stressed that this trip has served to reaffirm our conviction that gastronomy is one of the great strengths that Huelva has for its consolidation as a tourist destination, which also acquires a huge international projection if we link it to the American essence of our land.
The Dominican Republic will be the guest country at the 1st Binómico Ibero-American Gastronomic Congress, the first event of its kind to be held in Europe, which will bring together 30 speakers from 9 countries, including seventeen Michelin stars, in Huelva from October 25 to 27.
Binómico, with the slogan 22 cuisines, one identity, will turn the Huelva capital into the venue for the first annual Ibero-American gastronomic congress to be organized in Europe, and with which Huelva will once again build a bridge with the other side of the Atlantic.
The program, which will have a face-to-face and streaming format with output to all Ibero-America, will include lectures, talks and workshops, along with activities in bars and restaurants in the city, aimed at involving the entire population in the congress.
