II Gastronomy Contest for Gender Equality
In Spanish, here.
Last year´s Gastronomy Contest for Gender Equality, here.
On 19 February, the II Gastronomy Contest for Gender Equality was held at our school. The contestants introduced their dishes and were interviewed by a strict jury, who took into account not only the quality of each dish and its presentation, but also the defense of its relation with a notorious Andalousian woman.
