Cataplana festival

Vilamoura is set to host a Cataplana festival promoting the versatility of the Cataplana as a cooking vessel and the seafood dish itself.

Demonstrations on how to use the traditional cooking pot to cook not just seafood but also vegetables, meat dishes and even desserts will be presented to the public as part of the festival and there will also be opportunities to sample some of the dishes.

The festival will be part of the Allgarve Gourmet programme of events and is due to be held at the end of July at the marina in Vilamoura.
