MACKEREL WEEK 2023
A commented tasting and a pedagogical activity enrich the program of Semana da Cavala 2023, taking place in Setúbal between the 19th and 28th of May, with more than three dozen restaurants from Sadino presenting special menus.
During the initiative of the City Council, promoted within the scope of the “Setúbal Terra de Peixe” project to promote tourism and regional products, 32 catering establishments in the county include dishes specially centered on mackerel on their menus.
In addition to the more traditional ways of cooking this traditional fish from the Sadina coast, some restaurants include more elaborate proposals, such as A Casa do Peixe, which suggests steamed mackerel and cod mackerel, Decor & Salteado, with mackerel timbale, or Omotenashi, which promotes mackerel tartare and sashimi this week.
At the same time, the Cavala Week program develops “Probable Meetings”, with a guided visit to the headquarters of the Clube Recreativo Palhavã, followed by a tasting commented by Head Isabel Fonseca da Docapesca, on the 20th, at 18 pm.
Participation is free, but registration is required until the 18th, through this Link.
The life of mackerel is the thematic proposal of a pedagogical workshop scheduled for May 27th, at 17:00 pm, at the Municipal Public Library, with free participation, but mandatory registration until May 25th here.
The workshop, intended for ages 3 and up, offers more details about the fish's diet and habitat.
Cavala Week is supported by Docapesca, Turismo de Portugal, Clube Recreativo Palhavã and Quinta de Alcube.
