Lisbon (has even more) Fish & Flavours!
The tenth edition of Lisbon Fish & Flavours starts today, March 30. The event, organized by the Lisboa Tourism Association (ATL), aims to value and promote Portuguese gastronomy, highlighting national fish and seafood. Of interest to both professionals and the general public, Lisbon Fish & Flavours is divided into three sections: presentations by national and foreign chefs, a restaurant area with the presence of some of the best restaurants in Lisbon with fish and seafood suggestions and even a gourmet market. This year, for the first time, there will also be a space dedicated to children, where they can learn how to cook and, hopefully, fall in love for the often feared fish. New, also, is the location chosen to host this edition: the historic Carlos Lopes Pavilion, in the Parque Eduardo VII, recently recovered by ATL.
Lisbon Fish & Flavours was, in fact, the cradle of one of the most iconic dishes of Bistro 100 Maneiras: the Salmon burger in cuttlefish ink bread, which left the menu (but one never knows when it might be back) in the end of 2016. For some years, 100 Maneiras was present in this event, one of the most important gastronomic events of the city. In 2017, it’s time to return, this time with the participation of the junior sub-chef of Bistro 100 Maneiras, Fábio Cardoso, who will enter the Young Talent of Gastronomy competition, which this year presents itself at Lisbon Fish & Flavours. The kickoff is given on the April 6, starting at 2:30 p.m., with a debate on the “Future of Gastronomy in Portugal” and the demonstrations of the young competitors to the title.
Lisbon Fish & Flavours can be visited every day, from March 30th to April 9th.
