The Day of Conservas (Tinned Seafood)


August 8, 2018
10:30 AM - 11:00 PM


The Hotel Emma, 136 E Grayson St, San Antonio, TX 78215


Discover the magnificent flavor packed in conservas (or “tinned seafood”). Conservas are commonly found at a tapas bar or restaurant in Spain, and made using only high-quality ingredients. The day starts with a short documentary, a lesson from an expert, and ends with a tasting.

Yolanda Comesaña will be our expert of the day. She works as Head of Exports at Conservas Cerqueira. She has over 20 years of experience in the convservas industry, promoting the culture of mussels, cockles and sardines to people all over the world. She believes in the discovery of new uses, possibilities and traditions for conservas.

Larder and Sternewirth will be carrying tapas and dishes specifically designed to highlight this exclusive ingredient. Or find a seat at Supper’s table to experience Chef John Brand’s creative use of conservas.
