Social Event saturday
It will be an espicha, the saturday 28 April 2018 in the restaurant Tierra Astur, in front of the sea.
And what is an espicha? ;)
In Asturies tasting cider has been turned into a festival, a festival that was given the name of the piece of wood used as a stopper in the barrel. It is also the only culture where cider is poured in the customary fashion, locally called echada and this act of pouring is a mixture of science, technique, spectacle and ritual. As a result, this traditional event has a format that has been passed down from generation to generation.
This usually takes place in what is called a llagar (the place where cider is produced).
The main drink, and the one poured directly from the barrel to the glass, is cider.
The accompaniment is a menu which has no shortage of home-style sausages, cooked ham, Spanish omelette, boiled eggs, cured meats, Asturian cheeses, etc.
The most important thing is to eat, drink and and socialise with everyone, honest fun.
