From the 3Economy + project we are going to carry out the following activities: Gastronomy operates as an expression of cultural identity. It goes without saying that the culinary art has a predominant role in numerous celebrations. Food is important for our nutrition, but it also has important cultural and symbolic meanings that make it more than what's on our plates. Actually, eating and socializing have been closely linked throughout history. Tasting succulent dishes can be a great satisfaction. However, if we add to this food for the soul, also known as music, it is the perfect combination of a spectacular pleasure. This is the objective of our proposal: the reconciliation of musical and culinary art from a cultural, diachronic and synchronic perspective. In this regard, we will have the opportunity to be delighted with delicious recipes from the traditional cuisine of Melilla resulting from a mixing of cultures accompanied with the best musical performances and traditional dance displays. Four local artists will take part of the show, among them professionals in the field of classical, Spanish and ethnic dance. They will help us to connect with the different cultural realities of the city. Four different ethnic and religious communities (Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Hindu) coexist peacefully while maintaining their own particular cultural identities. Indeed, Nuria Nieto will be in charge of performing a Muslim dance; María del Carmen Florido is the responsible of the Catholic culture; Gonzalo Carmona will be in charge of the Jewish culture, and finally, Merche Hurtado will be the ambassador of the Hindu culture. Let us not forget, we will be tasting the most exquisite Melilla’s gastronomy which tempts the palate with a wide range of dishes and exquisitely flavorful specialties which are the product of the city’s cultural diversity and Mediterranean character. Some of the dishes are: traditional skewered diced pork, chicken pastela, couscous, Moroccan sweets such as “pañuelos”, fresh fish (prawns and lobsters, monkfish, wedge shell clams), Indian samosas, cucumber raita, colourful omelette and meat in onion sauce. Good cuisine is art. It is technique, passion and therapy. It is part of the cultural wealth of those ancient recipe books. Organized by Consejeria de Presidencia y Salud Pública, Consejería de Educación, Juventud y Deporte and 3Economy+ project Melilla la Vieja - Melilla falseMM/DD/YYYY
