D.O.C Rioja and the Basque Culinary Center are launching the second edition of Rioja Wine & Tapas. This is an international competition aimed at gastronomy students to pair tapas with Rioja wines. It seeks to award recipes that reflect the multicultural reality of gastronomy.
Participants must be over 18 and must be enrolled in a gastronomy course in a school or university.
The deadline to submit proposals is the 28th of October 2017. To enter the competition participants must complete a form on their website, which can be found HERE.
They will be asked for a written recipe, the image of the recipe they have prepared, the Rioja wine they have chosen to pair with their tapa and a brief explanation of why they have chosen that wine. Each participant may choose the type and the brand of wine they want to do their pairing, provided it is a D.O.Ca Rioja wine.
The winner of the competition will enjoy a gastronomic holiday in Spain, where they will visit one of the main wine producing regions at a global level, D.O.Ca.Rioja, and will visit San Sebastian, one of the cities with the highest number of Michelin stars, where they will eat at a renowned restaurant. Likewise, the Basque Culinary Center, the country’s first Faculty of Gastronomy, will offer the winner an intensive professional course.
