Welcome to Far From Ordinary – Spain Edition
We are delighted to be launching the Far From Ordinary – Spain Edition!
Far From Ordinary is a Culinary Travel Site focused on experiencing culinary culture both abroad and at home. As both travelers and culinary industry insiders away from home, we will share the richness, history and delights of Spanish food, wine and culture. We’ll also bring you ways you can experience more Spanish flavour through products, flavours and techniques you can get, taste and try at home.
Founders Alexa Clark and Matt Kantor are excited to be launching Far From Ordinary with the Spain Edition, since Spain is close to both of their hearts. They will be returning to Spain as Canadian Delegates to the 10th Annual Cooking with Olive Oil Conference (el Encuentro Internacional de Cocina con Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra) at Consorcio Hacienda La Laguna.
During the 5-day conference, they will be in Andalusia, based near Baeza with some opportunities to visit neighbouring towns, farms and olive groves.
That is just the start. After the Olive Oil Conference, it’s straight to the northern coast of Galicia for 2 days at the Fórum Gastronómico in Santiago.
After that plans are more flexible. Heading east into Basque Country, it’ll be time to relax a bit and enjoy the delights of markets, vineyards, restaurants and all the culinary adventures they can get into.
Finally it’ll be back to Madrid for the flight home, when there will be time to reflect and dig a little deeper about what they’ve learned, see and tasted.
We invite you to comment, ask questions, enter our contests and participate as the Spain Edition of Far From Ordinary rolls out over the next couple of months.
