As well as designing a menu based on local dishes from each province, the exquisite dishes will be paired with regional wines and Cavasincluding the famed Marqués de Riscal wines.

Dates for the events will be released over the coming weeks.
Marbella experienced heavy rainfall yesterday, as Malaga Province was put on orange alert by AEMET, the Spanish Meteorological Agency.
A heavy night of rain and storms brought flooding to the town as blocked drains were unable to cope, most notably on the Avda. Nabeul, just a day after the road had been reopened after ten months of roadworks that were supposed to deal with exactly that problem.
There were also floods at La Bajadilla and Councilor for Works, Blanca Fernandez, noted that the floods and improving the infrastructure, especially in the Divina Pastora area were “the next challenge we have to address.”
Heavy rain is again forecast for today while Sunday’s forecast looks a little better, with the warning downgraded to yellow.
