Octoberfest in Cala Figuera
Food Line is a really unusual culinary - theatric spectacle in an unusual place. The idea is to tell the story of the history of the humans, witch kind of food and products they ate and eat. The spectacle is distributed over 17 stations on an area of 30.000 m2 in a wide garden and plenty of art of the Es Revellar Art Resorts south of Campos. The event starts with our pre ancestors, living 4 1/2 million years ago and their food: walnuts, black berries and herbs. Followed by the Neanderthals who discovered fire and meat on skewers and later the beginning of agriculture. The event goes on with the food influence by old Egypt, Persia, old Greece, Rome, Arabs and the discovery of the United States, bringing us tomatoes and potatoes. Later in the 18th century came the influence by England and the new time with Coca Cola and donut. Even you can estimate what expects you on this event, you will be surprised. The idea is absolutely new and with 100 Euro definitely not overcharged. The whole event is accompanied by actors dressed in the time corresponding to the food. Still going on until end October.
The garden and the exhibition halls of the Es Revellar Art Hotel and the restaurant are even without the event absolutely worth a visit. Cami des Revellar, km 3,7 Campos. Www.thefoodline.es, www.esrevellarartresort.es.
