Sergio Ortiz, Roberto Terradillos and David Menéndez, awarded with the Sabores del Arco Atlántico ("Flavours from the Arco Atlántico"), will receive their awards July 31st at 21:30 in Gijón/Xixón's Main Square, where they will give us a cooking master class open to the public.

The award Sabores del Arco Atlántico, organized by Divertia Gijón, was born six years ago to promote the best cooks from the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Portugal, thinking about the chefs located in the Atlantic territories, and who represent their areas. In this occasion, the awards have been given to Sergio Ortiz (Restaurante Zarate, Biscay) and Roberto Terradillos (El Serbal restaurant, Cantabria), in the national category, and the Asturian David Menéndez, in the regional category.

The ceremony will take place Monday July 31st at 21:30 in Gijón/Xixón's Main Square, in the Arcu Atlánticu Festival. One of the great moments of the year for the Asturian city, embellished for this event where gastronomic street markets, cultural activities and scores of projects cohabitate, making it a unique event.

The most striking feature of the Sabores del Arcu Atlánticu is that chefs receive the award on a stage equipped with a kitchen, where they can show residents and visitors their best creations thanks to an original cooking show that gathers more than two thousand people every year.

The Festival's gastronomy is one of the key points within the scheduled activities programme. Sabores del Arco Atlántico award had great impact in previous editions, and this year it will gather some of the best chefs from around the world on its stage at the Main Square.
