Aromas Chinos y Vinos de Jerez con Mónica Zhou Y Paco Zhu Guadalquivir/ “Chinese Aromas and Sherry Wines” presented by Mónica Zhou and Paco Zhu Guadalquivir


Nuestra Sherry Explorer de Shanghai, Mónica Zhou y su marido, Paco  Zhu Guadalquivir, fueron nuestros invitados y nos dieron una interesantísima clase sobre los aromas de diferentes plantas chinas y su similitud con diferentes vinos de jerez.

Our Shanghai Sherry Sherry Explorer, Mónica Zhou, and her husband, Paco Zhu Guadalquivir, were our guest speakers and they gave us a fascinating class relating to the a variety of Chinese plants and the similarity that they have with the different types of Sherry wines.No podía faltar el juramento de los nuevos Sherry Explorers y la encargada de hacer la presentación fue la Sherry Explorer, Antonia Lucena que hizo un trabajo estupendo. ¡Bienvenidos a los nuevos incansables exploradores del vino de Jerez!

First, of course, we had to swear-in the new Sherry Explorers.  That evening, Sherry Explorer Antonia Lucena, was in charge of making the presentation and she did an excellent job.  Welcome to the new and tireless explorers of Sherry wine!

Seguidamente Mónica nos fue explicando las distintas plantas, de uso medicinal y otras que se toman como tés.   Unas las probamos, masticándolas, otras en forma de té y el Chenpi lo usó el Chef Paco Zhu (Guadalquivir) para hacer un guiso de carne de ternera que estaba espectacular.  Muy pronto publicaremos la receta.

Immediately afterwards, Mónica carefully explained the characteristics of each of the Chinese plants, including those that were used for medicinal purposes and those that were prepared and served as teas. Some of them we tasted by simply chewing them, and others we tasted as a tea.  The Chenpi, however, was utilized by  Chef Paco Zhu (Guadalquivir) In preparing a beef stew that was spectacular.  Soon, we will be posting his recipe.
