The 'menjars de la terra' return to the Hermitage of Sanç
The Comissió de Festes de Sant Antoni 2023 has celebrated the nineteenth edition of the gastronomic fair 'Menjars de la terra', after the parenthesis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, together with the councillor for Fiestas, Jesús Carrobles, and other members of the Municipal Corporation, who have been joined by the provincial deputy José Ramón González de Zárate, have participated today, together with hundreds of residents of l'Horta and the rest of the city's neighbourhoods, in a gastronomic event already consolidated within the local festive calendar, thanks the Commission chaired by José Fuster.
The initiative aims to bring the gastronomy of Benidorm and its region closer to residents and tourists who, for just ten euros, have been able to taste five traditional dishes cooked by the Commission itself and by catering establishments in the city.
The offer proposed starters such as bollets, pebrera tallà, coca farcida, fried 'montaditos' or squid with onions, to continue with the 'strong' dishes: putxero amb pilota, sang encebà, olleta de blat, arròs amb fesols i naps, fideuà and other typical Valencian rice dishes. Finally, for dessert, the diners tasted coca dolça and ice cream.
The Comissió de Festes de Sant Antoni will continue next week, on Sunday, with the recovery of the traditions of l'Horta de Benidorm with a new edition of the 'Cagà de la burra' that will also take place in the Ermita de Sanç.
