The Spanish embassy in Tripoli inaugurated Thursday night the Spanish Gastronomy Course that will take place in Tripoli over the next three days. Taught by the renowned Spanish chef Pedro Muñagorri, in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy and Repsol, the course will introduce Spanish gastronomy in Libya to 14 local chefs.
Day one’s menu was served to about 24 invited guests (including Libya Herald) where guest local chefs helped prepare such renowned Spanish dishes as gazpacho, gilda from San Sebastian and various fish dishes.
Growing cultural events by embassies
The event follows the positive cultural contributions by various embassies in Tripoli such as the ‘‘Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World’’ by the Italian embassy in December 2022.
But it also continues the Spanish embassy’s enrichment of cultural life in Libya through the hosting of Flamenco dancers and the Spanish chamber music concert by “Concerto Málaga”, an Andalusian ensemble last December, and the Spanish Film Festival that started last year and ended last week.
