THE unique cuisine of Nijar was celebrated during a special gastronomic fair. It was all about family recipes, said mayor Esperanza Perez, who said it was important to preserve “the dishes of our grandmothers and maintain local traditions”.

The fair was held in Campohermoso and well attended by local residents and associations. Many were invited to bring their own home-cooked delights along for tasting by a jury of professional chefs.

The Women’s Association of San Isidro won with their ‘Andrajos con conejo’ rabbit dish.

The jury also sampled efforts from Nijar’s thriving hotels and restaurants. Competitors were asked to prepare a three-course meal, including a dessert.

First prize went to Restaurant La Plaza, second to Hostel Omega, and third to Bar Cafeteria Circle.

The busy weekend also saw cooking master classes and live music. The event will be repeated every two years.
