SIZOO 2007 - Barcelona (Spain) September20-23

Postby Cristina Pedrosa » Mon Jul 16, 2007 12:16 am

Hi All :welcome:

It's a pleasure to be able to announce that, at long last, Spain and the Spanish Discus Hobbyists will have their own Discus Show and Championship and it's first edition is to be held at the SIZOO event in Barcelona, starting on the 20th and ending the 23rd of September.

Spanish Discus Hobbyists have been waiting for this dream to come true for quite a few years now and we now have seen that it`s been worthwhile waiting for and have been gifted with the opportunity to meet Mr. Jack Wattley and Heiko Bleher, among others, who both speak fluent Spanish.

We have been confirmed that there will be 50 display tanks and we can start insribing our discus as from now. Up to 4 discus per person are allowed and those who enter fish will need to be in Barcelona on September 18th to adapt their fish for the opening day, September 20th.

Should you need further information, please check out the following: http://www.firabcn.es

I will try to keep you updated on a weekly basis.

If any of you intend to enter fish, please don't hesitate to ask me for any help required, I will do my best to help you.

Cris

Hey Andrew, :welcome:
How about "PAELLA" (PIE-AY-YAH) Maybe Cris or Isaac can correct my spelling...
Or maybe some "potatoe omellets?!",,,although I've never been to Spain and Sue doesn't really cook much for spanish food (unless McDonalds is spanish? :question: :biggrin: :biggrin: :tong: ) my only reference is what I can find at the, very few, spanish restaurants here.
Cheers,
Stew

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him how to fish and hope you never find him alone in your fish room!!

I wish people would arrange shows to fit in with the 6 week school holidays lol. I miss out on so many good events otherwise.

Good luck with the show and make sure there are lots of photos.
All the best

hi all :welcome:
I'm not spanish, only live here but Spain is famous for the Jamon, sausages, cheese, paella, tortilla, and last but not at the end of my preference list, the vine. Spanish people are great eaters, they just amaze me with great diversity of plates :biggrin:
you can find loads of info on the net, here is one ex:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_cuisine

Just don't worry, if you came to Spain you will go home with some extra kilos :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Hi Andrew :welcome:

Mi favorite plate.... :question: There´s so many but I think it is a good paella and secondly the cocido madrileño. A suumer plate I love is the "melon con jamon" witch is a simple plate of fine slices of curred jam and melon but the way that the two tastes combines it´s just :thumbsup: .....yummy.

Hey!!

How about opening a Gourmet's post??? :tong:

My choice:

Melón con Jamón (cured ham and melon slices)

http://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/1753/gazpacho.html[url]
[/url]Gazpacho (Cold tomato soup)

Cocido madrileño: http://www.multimadrid.com/recipes/cocido.htm

There you go! now you can get slight idea of the variety of stuff they have in Spain, remember it's the Mediterranean diet and considered to be on of the richest, helthiest and a huge amount of recipies for typical plates for each province, area, and coasts.

So, paela & sangría all what you would be offeredd as a tourist visiting Spain, but you go ask for some of the above, and you'll know what's worth while :tong:

Okay!! I think I'll be openig another thread, with Walter's approval, to go back to informing you all of how the show goes. I will try to give you as much detailed information as possible, as mentioned previsoulsy :thumbsup:

ANYBODY COMING OVER :question:

Take care

Cris
