The Center of Hospitality of Galicia will host the 2nd Gastronomic Forum of Tourism of Galicia #GastroForumCSHG on 22 and 23 May, focused on this time in three fundamental axes: sustainability, solidarity and healthy gastronomy. In the year of Sustainable Tourism, this initiative will include different cooking workshops oriented towards the universal gastronomy and the access of all the public to a menu in the Galician restoration, working to offer an increasingly inclusive restoration service. It will also have a significant weight sustainable gastronomy, very oriented towards products that to date did not have a large presence, such as discard fish. Finally the Atlantic diet and its introduction in the Galician restoration will also merit a chapter in this gastronomic forum that will count on the participation of outstanding chefs such as Iván Domínguez from the Alborada Group, Luis Veira, from Árbore da Veira, Rafa Centeno from Maruja Limón or Roberto Filgueira from O Balado.

For more information: or by telephone: 981542592 – From Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 14.00hrs. Interested parties can register through this link
