PROTUR CHEF: Spain’s 1st national culinary class competition
From everyone here at Protur Hotels, we would like to introduce to you, PROTUR CHEF, Spain’s first national culinary class contest which will take place from 16th-19th March at Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa in Sa Coma, Majorca.
PROTUR CHEF is a very exciting event where you’ll find the best dishes made by some of the most promising names in culinary arts in Spain with an adults cooking competition, a children’s cooking contest, PROTUR CHEF KIDS, and other similar activities such as food stands, workshops, food-tasting stalls, food trucks, plus special guests including famous recipients of the Michelin Star award.
If cooking is your passion then don’t miss out on PROTUR CHEF where you’ll be in with a chance of meeting the best future chefs in Spain with 20 participants competing in the show. At the contest, contenders must prepare a dish based on porc negre mallorquín (Majorcan black pig), using a combination of cuts like sirloin and ribs as well as a number of added ingredients. All in all, it is essential that we see each contestant’s original take on the dish.
