Casabermeja Traditional Cooking Days


There’s nothing like a small village food festival to make spring come alive! This past weekend, we celebrated (again) “Casabermeja Traditional Cooking Days”  At its 4th edition, the festival was a great success despite the passing showers on Saturday.  From wild asparagus to goat cheese, small family owned businesses from all across the region came together to celebrate the best bites their industry has to offer. Delicious honey, out of this world tasty cheese, natural beauty products, cold cuts and sweets, were just few delectable goods offered for sale. For € 2.50 the restaurants and bars around the village offered a tapa and and a drink. For another € 12, a full three course menu. The main ingredients this year were the wild asparagus and  “tagarnina” (a wild thistle weed). There was a cooking contest, guided visits to the main tourist attractions of the village, Peñas de Cabrera, and the Cemetery, face painting for children and live music. We were really thrilled to see how by every passing edition, the “Casabermeja Traditional Cooking Days” are getting more detailed, and people from the village and not only, more involved. Of course we went down the village Saturday and Sunday, and accompanied by friends had pleasant time and great food.
