'Catalan Breakfast' initiative to promote gastronomy in international hotels
Guests at several 4 and 5-stars hotels to eat 'pa amb tomàquet' for breakfast
Traveling to Dubai and waking up to a 'pa amb tomàquet' (bread with tomato) with anchovies straight from the northern seaside town of L’Escala? A new initiative will make possible to eat a 'Catalan Breakfast' kilometers away from home.
On Saturday, the Catalan Ministry of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda launched a new campaign in Dubai’s Marriot hotel, the first one to participate in the initiative, that will bring food from the territory to guests at 4 and 5-stars international hotels during 2022.
The United Arab Emirates city served as a launching point for 12 Catalan food companies to showcase their product. Among the eats available: anchovies, cheese, vegetables, halal cold meat, and extra virgin olive oil.
To make sure that hotels will serve 'pa amb tomàquet' properly, a demonstration took place as well as a short description of each product’s characteristics.
Among guests in Dubai, diplomatic representatives from places such as the United Kingdom, Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, and Colombia.
