Nuestra invitada, Ángela Gallego, además de profesora de la Universidad de Cádiz, es miembro de la Asociación Gastronómica El Almirez, es una chef de las buenas, una Sherry Explorer, una gran persona y una enamorada e investigadora del flamenco.  Se le nota solo oyéndola hablar, lo vive y como profesora de las buenas, transmite.

Our guest speaker,  Ángela Gallego, in addition to being a professor at the University of Cadiz:  is a member of the El Almirez Culinary Association, an excellent chef,  a Sherry Explorer, a great person, and a lover and researcher of the art of flamenco.  You can tell just by listening to her – she experiences her passion and, like a good professor, she transmits it in the same manner.

Fue una presentación de esas que te cautivan y no podíamos quitar los ojos ni dejar de escuchar cada palabra que Ángela pronunciaba.  Algunos de los presentes seguro que conocían mucho del origen del flamenco pero creo que no me equivoco si digo que la mayoría, entre los que me incluyo, no podíamos imaginarnos la cantidad de diferentes culturas que han influenciado los distintos  palos que hoy conocemos del flamenco.

It was one of those presentations that was completely captivating.  We were spellbound and listened to every single word that Ángela said.  Some of those present surely knew a lot about the origen of flamenco but I am sure in saying that the majority, including me, could not imagine the number of different cultures which have have had an influence in creating the various components of which we now know as flamenco.

El aforo a tope, todos aprendiendo, como hacemos siempre los Sherry Explorers.  Las casi dos horas supieron a poco.  La verdad es que el tema es para dedicarle mucho más tiempo.  Esta introducción al Origen del Flamenco, la continuaremos con una cata en unos meses en la que armonizaremos los diferentes vinos del Marco del jerez con los diferentes palos del flamenco con música en vivo.

The seating area was completely full, and we were all learning as Sherry Explorers always do.  The almost two-hour presentation seemed short to us.  The truth is that the topic was one that would require a lot more time to be complete. This introduction to the origin of flamenco will be followed up, in a few months,  by a tasting  at which we will pair different wines from the Sherry-producing area with the different components of flamenco, accompanied by live music.

..y como siempre en nuestras reuniones los Sherry Explorers trajeron unas tapas y unos postres espectaculares y como siempre fue dificilísima la elección de solo dos de ellas.  Las delicias de  Pepi Relinque y Giovanna Vella  fueron las elegidas, ¡Enhorabuena! y acompañando a las tapas, los vinos de la Bodega Manuel Aragón, excelentes.

No os perdáis el video, os va a gustar.

…and, as we always do at our meetings, the Sherry Explorers brought some spectacular tapas and desserts, and, as always, it was a very difficult task to select just one of each category as the winners.  The delights created by  Pepi Relinque and Giovanna Vella were selected as the best of that evening.  Congratulations!  We accompanied all of our tapas and desserts with some excellent wines from the Manuel Aragón Bodega.

Don´t miss the video!  I´m sure that you will enjoy it.
