Benidorm GastronomyLooking for some fun in the son, along with some great cuisine? Check out Pink News’ new review of Benidorm, Spain, a culinary paradise:

Look past the inevitable pizzas and fastfood you find in every resort, and you will see the rich gastronomic variety of the Valencia region, renowned as one of the finest in Spain and it’s easy to see why. There are so many historic influences on the traditional cuisine from the invading Moors and the seafaring spice merchants to the fishing and agricultural heritage of the area. Paella was born here, in all it’s many forms, and the excellent range of local rice dishes form the basis of a number of speciality paellas to tempt the taste buds.

They also have the skinny on a bunch of upcoming culinary events:

The first event in March is a week-long local event promoting the ‘cuchara’ or food you literally eat on spoons, such as soups, stews and rice dishes. Several restaurants in the resort will create special keenly priced menus to showcase regional dishes. This is closely followed in mid April by the Tapas & Pinchos competition which encourages local restaurants and some of the region’s best chefs to create the most imaginative dishes to present to a panel of exacting judges and ends with a festival celebrating the rice dishes of the region in October.
