Nos ha visitado nuestro compañero Sherry Explorer de Nueva York, Antonio Morales.  Antonio hizo su juramento durante la cena maridada con vinos de jerez que hicimos durante el 2016 Congreso de FAEUSA en La Nacional.  Nieves, Sofía y Vicky, del Equipo Discover Sherry, nos fuimos a New York y presentamos vinos de la Bodega González-Byass con un menú típico español.  Fue una experiencia maravillosa.

We recently received a visit from one of our New York Sherry Explorer, Antonio Morales.  Antonio was sworn-in during the Sherry-wine harmonized dinner held during the national conference of the 2016 FAEUSA at “La Nacional” in New York.  Nieves, Sofía, and Vicky, of the Discover Sherry Team, all went to New York to present Sherry wines provided by the González-Byass  winery which were paired with a traditional Spanish menu.  It was a wonderful experience.Fue un placer recibir a Antonio en Jerez y pasamos un muy buen rato en el restaurante La Carboná donde disfrutamos de la exquisita cocina de Javier Muñoz, el Chef del Sherry.  Le acompañamos Petra Rodríguez Conde, Presidenta de FAEUSA, María Higuero, fotógrafa y que ya ha presentado dos exposiciones en La Nacional, Nieves Sierra y yo misma las dos del equipo Discover Sherry.  Todos los presentes Sherry Explorers.

It was a pleasure to greet Antonio and welcome him to Jerez.  We enjoyed a leisurely long-lunch at the La Carboná  restaurant where we marveled at the exquisite culinary creations  of  Javier Muñoz,  the “Sherry Chef.”  We also had the pleasure of being accompanied by  Petra Rodríguez Conde, the FAEUSA President,  and María Higuero, a local photographer/artist who has already had two photo exhibits displayed at La Nacional.  Of course,  Nieves Sierra and I were there representing the Discover Sherry Team.  Interestingly, all of those present are Sherry Explorers.Antonio Morales es el Presidente de La Nacional-Spanish Benevolent Society  donde hicimos la cata y María expuso su obra.  Es el centro cultural español más antiguo de la ciudad de Nueva York con una historia fascinante. Se fundó en 1868, el objetivo principal de La Nacional es “promover, fomentar y difundir el espíritu de fraternidad y solidaridad entre españoles e hispano-americanos residentes en este país”.  En los primeros años, ayudaban a los inmigrantes españoles con manutención, alojamiento, servicio médico y pompas fúnebres, funcionando como un centro de reunión lejos de casa. Hoy en día sigue funcionando como centro multicultural y tiene un estupendo restaurante español.  Si vais a Nueva York no dejéis de visitarlo.  Os dejamos el enlace:   http://lanacional.org/es/sobre-la-nacional-spanish-benevolent-society-nyc/

Antonio Morales is the President of the “La Nacional-Spanish Benevolent Society” where we held the Sherry-tasting and María displayed her photographs. La Nacional is the oldest Spanish cultural center in New York City and it has a fascinating history.  It was founded in 1868.  Its primary goal was to “promote, encourage, and spread the spirit of brotherhood and solidarity amongst the Spanish and Hispanic-American residents of (the U.S.).”  In the initial years, the society would help Spanish immigrants to the U.S. with financial support, lodging, medical and funeral services, and also served as a meeting place for those who were far from home. Nowadays, it serves as a multi-cultural center and houses an excellent restaurant featuring Spanish cuisine.  If you are in New York City, we highly recommend that you drop by for a visit.  Attached is the link to their website:  http://lanacional.org/es/sobre-la-nacional-spanish-benevolent-society-nyc/
