Annual Giant Paella.....

This year marks the 21st campaign organized by the Asocación Solidaria Amigos de Baracoa, Cuba, which culminates in the Giant Paella prepared by Joaquín from La Herradura’s Chambao de Joaquín, in the Majuelo, Almuñécar.

 The event will take place on the weekend fo the 19th and 20th of January and will have live music performed by Cubanísimo and the Duo Sortilegio (Laura & Diego), as well as plenty of colour and movement provided by the Flamenco dance group, Sabor Andaluz.
There will also be musicians and dancers from Baracoa in Cuba: Nadiuska & Raul Cintra and their dance academy Salsaludando.

For those of you who remember the very popular kiddy’s show from the early 80′s, Verano Azul, there will be some of the actors from the series.

And it doesn’t stop there because there will also be a raffle draw with prizes such as legs of cured ham and boxes of wine and much more. Finally, if you like a good Cuban cigar, you can buy them then, as well.

So, starting at noon on the 19th, you’ll be able to contribute to a charity cause and watch Joaquín, in spectacular form,  preparing and cooking a huge paella, which, for just six euros, you can have a good plate of together with a drink and bread.
