Elite Gourmet Party at Casa de Velazquez

We have been to a very tasty event this week organised by Elite Gourmet, Spanish seal of quality for gourmet products, in an outstanding venue called Casa de Velazquez. The building belongs to the French Ministry of culture and is named after painter Velazquez because the legend says he liked to paint from that same spot sunsets and mountain views.

The event had two different moments, during the morning, five well known and starred spanish chefs; Nacho Manzano from Casa Marcial, Ramón Freixa from Ramon Freixa, Marcos Morán from Casa Gerardo, Paco Pérez from Miramar and Mario Sandoval from Coque chose several Elite Gourmet products and cooked them in their very personal way. A great experience to see chefs cooking and have the chance to eat directly from all of them in such a beautiful terrace.

At the same time and in the corridor surrounding the central patio, Elite Gourmet presented all its products ready to be tasted by visitors. You could have a walk among the different stands and get careful explanations from product and why they go the seal of quality. Currently, there are 39 products, among wines, cavas, cheese, olive oil, ibéricos and even caviar! 

We loved it so much, that we also stayed for the evening. A gorgeous sunset decorated by Floreale and Ki-wi, an elegant cocktail and live flamenco jazz music… unforgettable!!

Hemos estado en un evento muy sabroso esta semana, organizado por Elite Gourmet, sello español de calidad para los productos gourmet, en un magnífico lugar llamado Casa de Velazquez. El edificio pertenece al Ministerio de Cultura francés y lleva el nombre de pintor Velázquez porque la leyenda dice que le gustaba pintar desde ese mismo punto atardeceres y vistas a la montaña.

El evento tuvo dos momentos diferentes, durante la mañana, cinco conocidos chefs españoles, Nacho Manzano de Casa MarcialRamón Freixa de Ramon FreixaMarcos Morán de Casa GerardoPaco Pérez de Miramar y Mario Sandoval de Coque  eligieron varios productos de Elite Gourmet y los cocinaron cada uno en su manera muy personal. Una gran experiencia ver los chefs cocinar y tener la oportunidad de comer directamente de todos ellos en una hermosa terraza.

Al mismo tiempo y en el pasillo que rodea el patio central, Elite Gourmet presentó todos sus productos listos para ser degustados por los visitantes. El paseo entre los diferentes stands ofrecía tanto degustación como cuidadosas explicaciones. Elite Gourmet cuenta 39 productos, entre vinos, cavas, quesos, aceite de oliva, ibéricos e incluso caviar!

Nos gustó tanto, que también nos quedamos por la noche. Una hermosa puesta de sol decorada por Floreale y Ki-wi, un elegante cóctel y música en vivo de jazz flamenco ... inolvidable!
