·4 min read

From June 12 - 14, 2022, Private Chef Antonio Ortuño (Garlic & Parsleys) will present Spain's high-quality ingredients and unique gastronomy through several live cooking shows.

NEW YORK, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- #SpainFoodNation announces its participation in Summer Fancy Food 2022 and partnership with Spanish Chef Antonio Ortuño. From Sunday, June 12th to Tuesday, June 14th in the Spanish Pavillion, Chef Ortuño will display Spain's wide array of top-notch products through live cooking shows and educational seminars.

Summer Fancy Food is the largest U.S. show devoted exclusively to specialty foods and beverages, organized by the non-profit Speciality Food Association.

Among the exhibitors, there will be 61 Spanish companies showing and promoting their high-quality products, including EVOO, olives, meats, canned fish, herbs, spices, snacks and more.

Chef Ortuño has deep-seated roots from the Mediterranean western coast of Alicante (Spain) where he was born. Spain's traditionally unique cuisine and regional specialties as well as the country's rich culture and history are what fuel his passion to continue exploring the region's many recipes and re-creating his own for the world to explore. Focused on a healthier, Mediterranean diet with a contemporary touch, he has been cooking out-of-the-box renditions of traditional Spanish recipes for 12 years.

"I am ecstatic to share a taste of Spain at the 2022 Summer Fancy Food in New York City," says Chef Ortuño. "We have created an exquisite menu with authentic flavors from Spain that will give attendees insight into the country's unique gastronomy."

Chef Ortuño will host eight (8) seminars across the three days. Trade and media attendees can expect a lively experience, with cooking demonstrations including how to make Watermelon Gazpacho, Ceviche de Berberechos, and Pan de Calatrava and why Spain's ingredients are perfect for exploration.
