Trophies of the Tomato de Huerta Festival in Cangas del Narcea

The tomato is not missing in any salad, it is an essential complement to the healthiest diets and is one of my easy resources to make in cream or soup. In addition, it has a prize because in the Tomato Festival of the Huerta del Narcea, which is celebrated every year in Cangas de Narcea (Asturias) they are chosen the best tomatoes in the area.

If the west of Asturias is a great stranger, Cangas del Narcea is located in the south center of it, adding the relative difficulty to reach it.

I say relative because in less than an hour and a half the 90 km that separate the parish of Oviedo are saved, and the last section is really beautiful for its natural landscapes.

Cangas del Narcea owes its name to a river, the Narcea, which runs winding between valleys that help create a microclimate suitable for wine growing and of the products of the garden. From one of those products that are born under a benevolent sun, in 2008 a festive tradition began.

Nine years ago there was a bite of winch among friends, but it was not precisely because of the result of a football match. They argued for tomato quality, a product that everyone grew, and by whom of them had the best sprouting from their tomato plants.

The bar discussion could only be resolved in one way, as Pepe Ron told me, of the White Restaurant Bar in Cangas de Narcea, and it was organizing a contest on the fly.
