Semana del Arroz

It seems that this is the season of Jornadas Gastronómicas in Seville (and nothing wrong with that, of course, especially if I’m invited for a free sample). This week (November 21-27) it’s the XX Edition of Las Jornadas Gastronómicas con Más Tradición – specifically La Semana del Arroz (Rice Week) – at the Taberna del Alabardero.

The event was held in the central patio, normally in use as a restaurant as part of a complex that includes a café, bar, boutique hotel (just 7 rooms), and a catering and hospitality school, with the cooking of a range of rice dishes, including classic paella Valenciano and an arroz negro among others, under the watchful eye of master chef Juan Tamarit.

For those eager to learn the secrets of cooking perfect rice like this there’s a three day school (November 22-24) running at the school in tandem with Rice Week.
