Tasting workshop on Canarian figs

If you don't know your brebas from your higos - and would like to (obviously, a pretty good working knowledge of Spanish would be quite handy too) - then this tasting and identification workshop on Canarian figs, organized by the Town Hall of Tegueste, the Tenerife Corporation, the Agency for Agricultural Extension and Rural Development of La Laguna, the Tegueste Farmers' Market and the Center for Conservation of Agricultural Biodiversity of Tenerife, might be for you.

Figs grow wild all over the north of the island and, when in season, so plentifully that people hardly know what to do with them. You will also see lots of locally dried figs for sale, fig conserves and fig cakes at Christmas, among other products - all of which make excellent properly local souvenirs. The workshop is from 11am to 1pm on Saturday, August 22nd at the Farmers' Market in Tegueste. More info by calling 922 25 71 53.

Breba or fig? All brebas are figs, but not all figs are brebas.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
