This is the 4-day ‘Streets of Spain’ festival on the South Bank, “a four day celebration of modern Spanish food, wine, art and culture”. Traders from Barcelona’s La Boqueria Market will be selling their produce; wine tasting will be held by sponsors Campo Viejo; breakfasts will be served to early risers and Michelin-starred Spanish chef, Angel Pascual, is serving dinner at a pop-up restaurant.

Unlike some of the other festivals held in this area recently, a lot of effort has been put into this event. Bringing 11 of the market traders from the world famous ‘La Boqueria’ market in Barcelona to London is a great feat itself. Most fascinating for me were offal specialists ‘Menuts Rosa’ with their offerings such as “Hot Pie of Meat” and “Cake of Cow Head & Tongue with Pistachios”

For those more squeamish, ‘Fruita Seca Morilla’ have an eye catching display of candied fruits while several vendors will be selling Jamon.

The principle sponsors Campo Viejo are offering Spanish wine tastings and blending sessions for the oenophiles among you. In the “Introduction to Spanish wine” sesssion they serve their Cava, Cava Rosé, Tempranillo 2011, Dominio 2007, Gran Reserve and Reserve 2008.

Well worth visiting if you are a fan of Spanish food and drink. Especially as the Real Food Festival is running concurrently next door. If you intend to go to a testing or the dinner at the pop-up, book online below.
