The Academia de Gastronomía de la Región de Murcia

The Academia de Gastronomía de la Región de Murcia is a prestigious organisation established in 2010 as part of the Real Academia Española de Gastronomía in Madrid. The main purpose of the Academy is the public recognition of the common cultural heritage of the food of the region, with the belief that food and its manner of preparation are the result of the origin and culture of all the villages and inhabitants. When they saw the book, Spanish Village Cooking – Recetas del Campo – in Spanish & English – with 150 recipes from our small village of La Murta they were enthusiastic to visit and taste the local delicacies. The chefs of La Murta are equally excited and enthusiastic to show their prowess in the kitchen.
