Cristina Roig and Ada Parellada cook with Andreu with Down syndrome and Montse with visual impairment.

Upon entering the Gastronomic Forum Barcelona, ​​the sense of smell is activated in a barbaric way. The stoves are burning on the stands and each exhibitor goes there with his own to seduce the visitors through the nose. This Tuesday, shortly after 12.30 p.m., the auditorium of Hall 8 of the Fira de Montjuïc smells of steamed mussels and ‘escudella’. Mmmm. You had to follow the scents to see what was being cooked in them. And if, they were aromas of the good, but enriched with solidarity.

Because it was the chefs Ada Parellada (Semproniana) and Cristina Roig (cook and teacher) who prepared these dishes in front of a gourmet audience, supported by two handicapped people, Montse, Blind and Andreu, with Down syndrome). In the back, the catering consultant Annette Abstoss and the food expert Dámaris Rojas. The four featured Round menu‘, an ambitious project that gives restaurants access to People with disabilities or in a situation of vulnerability.

this Initiative for social engagement, which should be up and running in about four or five weeks, somehow captures those spontaneous movements that occurred during the worst period of the pandemic, when restaurants were closed and chefs were busy preparing food for the toilets, for example. It was the case of Parellada. Now that the virus seems to be under control, media directors Roig, Abstoss and Rojas wanted to go one step further with “Circular menu”. “We want to structure and give permanent continuity to all of these actions “.

Almost at cost

And the way is as follows: Restaurants register for the ‘app’ of this special offer Menus at almost cost priceswhich are also subsidized by public administrations and social institutions. There is also space for providers. Those who can benefit from it are people accredited by the same organizations that invested money in the project: people with all types of dependency due to their physical or mental disabilities, people at risk of social exclusion, the elderly, who alone and with economic difficulties …

“Anyone who eats in these restaurants thanks to the ‘Circular Menu’ You have to pay at least one eurobecause if it were for nothing, the work behind it would not be counted and the restaurant needs a small amount to be able to compensate for its effort, ”says Absoss. costs 7.90 euros, but if they stayed at a single euro with the maximum grant (6.90). “That way we don’t exclude anyone in a restaurant.” The promoters emphasize that this is a project that “helps to appreciate and destigmatize these groups“.

Beyond the soup kitchens

“This works out beyond the soup kitchens; in reality it is an agile and flexible alternative, because there are restaurants everywhere that use their infrastructure and capillarity in the territory, while there are only a few soup kitchens.

And what menus do these people find when they go to a restaurant? “Something like a Combined dish, but very complete and nutritionally balanced, with seasonal and local products, always with vegetables. The suggestions will be tasty, simple and healthy, “explains Roig, co-director of the Hotel Golf-Spa Can Rafel, cookery teacher at the Hotel and Tourism School Sant Ignasi de Sarrià and gastronomic advisor at Parc Agrari del Baix Llobregat an unapproachable message in a nutshell: “These people, like all of us, want to go to a restaurant too, and they have every right. ‘Circular Menu’ is the tool for them to practice it”.
