The food and wine pairing competition will be held as part of the Copa Jerez Forum & Competition, a major event that is expected to attract more than 300 participants, among them top industry professionals.

The competition in Spain was hosted at the Madrid Chamber of Commerce Catering School, and the team from BonAmb comprised chef Pau García Mas and sommelier Enrique García Albelda. Their creations included olive escabeche, oyster thistle and Sanlúcar prawns, paired with Manzanilla Pasada Bota 83, Bota Punta from Equipo Navazos; “Hermanamiento de Amontillado y Fondillón,” which was paired with Amontillado 51/1 VORS, from Bodegas Osborne; and salted almond with soy coca in sherry brandy and lemon, paired with Amoroso Medium Dry, from Bodegas El Maestro Sierra.

The Spanish restaurant, in Alicante on Spain’s east coast, competed with other heavyweights such as Casa Pepe de la Judería, Camiño do Inglés, Atrio, and El Ermitaño to win the title.

BonAmb will go head-to-head with the teams from restaurants from all over the world: Denmark, the Netherlands, the UK, the US, Belgium and Germany, all of them competing to find the “perfect harmony with sherry wines,” according to diariodejerez.es.
