27 Dec Aragón, Corvina REX and gastronomic talent, great protagonists of the National Gastronomy Contest
The sixth edition of the “National Gastronomy Contest FACYRE”, held in Palma de Mallorca, has revealed the great gastronomic talent that reigns in our country with a close competition for autonomous communities in which Aragon and Corvina REX excelled like never before.
Thus, this year the contest had two main ingredients for the Cooks category: Corvina Rex, by the Frescamar company, and rabbit meat, through the Interprofessional Organization to promote the cuniculture sector (INTERCUN).
Ingredients that the Carcas Armingol brothers, from the Casa Pedro Zaragoza restaurant, have handled with great ability to win the first prize.

In addition to the main ingredients of the two dishes that each team had to prepare, there have been two complementary ingredients also required.
In the case of the fish dish, chefs have had to use broccoli, while, for the meat dish, sobrassada (Majorcan sausage) has been the secondary ingredient; a typical product of the islands where the competition has been held.
With these premises and great technique and creativity, the Aragon representative team has prepared a grilled Corvina REX with roast chicken broth and broccoli ravioli that has captivated the jury.

Aragon repeats success because, in the last edition, it was also the community that deserved the highest award of this prestigious contest promoted by the Federation of Cooks and Bakers of Spain (FACYRE).
