Get the first taste of Spain! This exclusive cocktail hour, press conference, and professional networking session includes complimentary food and drink from our three guest regions, as well as a sampling of products from additional food and drink partners.

A special performance by chef Firo Vázquez of his Edible Don Quixote will be the highlight of this session, open to project partners, press, academics, and professionals in the fields of food, culture, travel and hospitality.

Featured performance: Eating up Don Quixote.

Join us on a literary and gastronomic journey into the world of Don Quixote. An exploration of the famous novel, led by chef and knight-errant Firo Vázquez. A unique experience of reading and feasting on Cervantes’ masterpiece, reproduced for the occasion in fully edible format.

Throughout time Don Quixote has come to stand for the mix of madness and temerity needed to go against the expected. Eating up Don Quitoxe is chef Firo Vazquez’s own quixotic adventure, the daring proposal of an errant chef who is convinced that words should be feasted upon, quite literally.

This activity is also performed in Washington on October 27, in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain and the EU delegation in Washington.

By invitation only.
