Provincial style

I love this Jaén olive oil cooking competition, which is held not in Jaén but in San Sebastián, at the other end of the country. Is this because Jaén-ocrats want an annual freebie to the north, or because they’re ashamed of their home town? S, currently designing a collection of wedding accessories for the metropolis, is contemplating with rather more interest Murcia Council’s sixth annual Concurso Nacional de Diseños no Aburridos, National Competition for Non-Boring Design. This year it’s hats.

  1. Good point, but the advantages to making some sort of connection between olive oil from Jaén and cooking in San Sebastián are numerous, tenuous as it might be.

  2. I think it’s excellent! I used to work for a company that had its Christmas party in May, which was cheaper and resulted in less people freezing to death after falling asleep in the taxi rank.
