When talking about SPAIN I am pretty sure gastronomy would be one of the first things which comes to your mind.
Yes, Spanish cuisine counts with unique talents, awarded worldwide.
The variety of the Spanish gastronomy is deliciously huge and offers big creativity to our chefs.
Gastronomy also reveals a significant part of the culture and lifestyle of a place. It speaks by itself and says a lot.
That’s why it is important to preserve this industry. And this purpose is followed by GMchef, a gastronomic contest organised by Gros Mercat which also counts with the collaboration of UNILEVER and HELMANN’S.
The main goal of this gastronomic event is to promote talent and creativity in gastronomy. And, also, train future Chef and recognise the first 3 classified with a stage in practice in the main Michelin Star Spanish restaurants.
