The Protected Designations of Origin Condado de Huelva, Vinagre del Condado de Huelva and Vino Naranja del Condado de Huelva presented, on November 8 at the Reception and Documentation Center of the Port of Huelva, a book of recipes ‘Flavors with Designation of Origin’ prepared by chefs from Huelva in which their wines and vinegars are integrated to promote these products among restaurateurs and food lovers in general. This has been sponsored by the Port Authority of Huelva and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Junta de Andalucía.
Through the elaboration of a unique recipe book, the aim is to transmit the quality of the products protected by this denomination, a recipe book that can also be consulted through the web www.saborescondadodehuelva.es.
The execution of this cookbook has been carried out by chefs such as Luismi López from ‘Arrieros’; Carmelo Rufo from ‘Restaurante Época’; Manuel García from ‘Restaurante Montecruz’; Antonio Macías from ‘El Cerrojo Tapas’; José Duque from ‘Casa Dirección’; Juan Martín from ‘Azabache’; Juan López from ‘Ultramarino’; Alejandro Ojeda from ‘Casa Braulio’; Nacho Rodríguez, professor of the Instituto Superior de Gastronomía; and the bartender Gonzalo Domínguez; a wide representation of the Huelva cuisine from all the regions. These chefs have prepared a starter, a first course and a dessert in which white, fine, oloroso, red wines and vinegars with designation of origin ‘Condado de Huelva’ have been the protagonists.
These are “simple recipes, tasty, with Huelva products with designation of origin of the great variety that exist in our Designations of Origin,” says the president of the same, Manuel Infante.
In this sense Infante says that this cookbook is “a small sample of our gastronomic heritage, the result of the good work and creativity of a selection of unique chefs in which our wines and vinegars of certified quality are integrated.
The president of the Port of Huelva, Pilar Miranda, said that through this recipe book, “as part of our strategy of port-city integration, we intend to support an important productive sector of the province, formed by companies producing and marketing of wines and vinegars covered under the seal of quality of the Regulatory Council ‘Condado de Huelva’, as well as the hospitality sector, as they are an important pillar of the economy of the municipalities of the province”.
Juan Martín, from the Azabache Restaurant, representing the participating chefs, affirms that “our wineries have entered a process of improvement and modernity that increasingly make Condado de Huelva wines to be seen on the tables of our establishments; and that must be the way, that in Huelva wines from Huelva are consumed as it happens in almost all provinces with their own products; on a par with their quality and versatility when used in the kitchen. We must be ambassadors of what is ours”.
