 It’s been unbelievable the I “CHAMPIONS DINNER” organized by the Penya Gastronòmica Barça, on this occasion with the chef Joao Alcantara from Brazilian restaurant “Fogo”.

The owner of this restaurant is the great player of FC Barcelona Dani Alves, who has been to this first “Champions Dinner” with the members of the Penya Gastronòmica Barça.

Very kind to everybody, openminded and joking, Dani Alves has explained very frankly his points of view about gastronomy and Barça.

Within a very especial place like “La Foodieteca” and with the “showcooking” model, the members of Penya Gastronòmica Barça have enjoyed an unforgettable dinner knowing several products very typical in Brazil such as catupiry cheese, moqueca, pipioca, okra, mini rice only in Brazil, inhame, açaí, etc.

Live cooking with different textures and flavours very new for everybody, and in contintuous gastronomic emotional sensations as the Barça supporters have experimented with the “jogo bonito” of Romario, Ronaldinho Gaucho or Neymar.

Excellent wine pairing with the wines of “Torres”, all them very balanced and expressive such as Waltraud, Fransola, Mas La Plana and Grans Muralles.

The welcoming to the first “Champions Dinner” has been with the beer “Inèdit” from Damm, the most culé beer!

Ending the fasntastic dinner, Teresa Martí, marketing directress of Fogo, has drawt one official ball of “Champions League” and one Barça official shirt of Dani Alves, both signed by him, who have won the members of Penya Gastronòmica Barça Jordi Castells and Gregori Salas.

Thank you very much to Joao Alcantara, Dani Alves and their excellent team for this superb Brazilian cooking experience, thanks for their friendliness and sympathy.

Visca Barça and Gastronomy!
