Annie B's features as a favourite cooking destination in Andalucía

It was a fantastic summer of fun and food at Annie B's and now, as November approaches we're burning up the calories on long beach walks. El Palmar (the closest beach to Vejer de la Frontera) boasts MILES of sun-drenched white sands, with historic Trafalgar at one end and the charming fishing village of Conil at the other. So pack those iPods and enjoy the best power walking of the year!

Make it a Date

A Delicious Long Weekend 18th-21st November 2010

Beautiful Vejer de la Frontera

Andalucían Novembers are fabulous months – sunny warm days with slightly chilly and crystal clear evenings. A time for soaking up late sunshine and indulging in fresh Med flavours as well as more warming evening dishes.

Annie B is offering 4 nights and 3 days from Thursday 18th of November. An injection of sunshine and an array of fabulous new recipes is a perfect way to set yourself up for the winter months.

Or - why not add some extra days and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Kitchen classes will be starting on Monday the 15th of November for those who wish to spend longer in Vejer. Join us even for just one day!

Gourmet Tapas in Zahara de los Atunes

In October, Zahara de los Atunes (a fishing village local to Vejer) celebrated the deliciousness of the local breed of cattle, Retinto, with a tapas competition. Competing local bars and restaurants offered their specially designed Retinto based tapa along with a copa de vino for a staggering 3 euros!!!!

All things Tuna

Gourmet Tapas

Voters were asked to visit at least 8 of the 18 competing bars and restaurants to sample the tapa on offer and finally choose their favourite by marking a card. Annie B’s vote went to restaurante La Botica and their “
Delicia Libanesa al aroma andalusí”.

Zahara is famous for Atun and holds a similar tapas competition based around tuna fish. This is a spectacular gourmet weekend.

In May 2011 the 3rd Ruta de Atun will take place. Annie Bs will soon announce a date for a cooking course incorporating a day at the Ruta de Atun in Zahara – more information to follow in the next newsletter.

Albariño USA

Annie B was really excited to find Albariño on offer whilst picnicking recently at a stunning winery called Chrysalis in Virginia, USA. Albariño is the widely planted grape of the Rias Baixas Denominación of Galícia in north western Spain. It produces the most wonderfully aromatic and delicious white wine of the same name - possibly the best white wine of Spain and hugely admired around the World - hence the recent planting and production in the US. It was totally yumlicious and a perfect accompaniment to her pulled pork sandwich.
