Estepona’s Foreign Residents Department along with the ‘Sabor a Malaga’ project have organised the second edition of the Christmas Cake Fair on Thursday 15 December from 11 am at the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona.
This year some 15 nationalities have already signed up to present a traditional christmas cake or dessert that is typical of their country. Each person has up to three minutes to explain the history of the cake and their country’s Christmas traditions.
The countries participating include: United States, Canada, Germany, Chile, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Venezuela, Peru, Chile and the United Kingdom.
Sabor a Malaga will also present a wide range of products that are promoted under the ‘Taste of Malaga’ brand and their will be an opportunity to taste wines from the Province.
The event will also be attended by students from the Town’s School of Gastronomy and Hospitality, which is based in the Palacio.
The Councillor for Tourism and Foreign Residents, Ana Velasco, remarked that last year more than 80 foreign residents took part in the event, and that “the presence of this significant number at the activities organised in the town, showed the integration of the foreign community in Estepona”.
This is just one of a programme of multicultural events arranged throughout the year for this community which represents almost 30% of the resident population.
Entry to the event is free and all are welcome.
