Live demonstrations of how to make a tasty Valencian and vegan paella, gluten-free dishes, superfood juices, vegetable and dried fruits pates or ‘veganised’ Italian recipes. This year, the Pachamama area presents 21 hours of live cooking through 14 cooking shows by prestigious vegetarian and vegan chefs, who land for the first time next to the area’s characteristic dome. A new free gastronomic proposal that will introduce the integral project Vegetarian Lovers, created to present the healthy diet, a project that is born of the collaboration of the Rototom Sunsplash and El Tenedor Verde, owned by the young vegetarian chef Anay Bueno.
Two cooking shows on sustainable and healthy cuisine and on Sattvic food (based on essential products) will open the culinary programme on Saturday 12th August, whereas on Sunday 13th, we will learn about basic and Ayurvedic vegan recipes. Monday 14th August will be the turn of traditional Indian gastronomy and how to cook a good Valencian and Vegan paella. The proposal of the cooking show on Tuesday 15th will be a refreshing one: juices made with superfoods. Knowing the many uses of Mediterranean medicinal plants in day-to-day cooking will be the focus of the culinary demonstration on 16th August, while gluten-free food and creative recipes for the summer will support the gastronomic proposals on Thursday 17th.
Another new workshop will arrive on Friday 18th, under the title Veganising Italian recipes with black rice pasta, which will be completed with the session Happiness and health with Matcha green tea. On the last day of the festival, festival-goers will have the chance to learn how to make vegan pates with legumes and dried fruits, and will get to know the properties and virtues of sesame applied to vegetarian cuisine. Sounds tasty, doesn’t it?
