International Women´s Day 2016

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.

Difficult, isn´t it?
