Carola Smits’ Culinary Exhibition at Hogarguti Showroom

Carola Smits of La Sobremesa recently showcased her culinary expertise at the Hogarguti design showroom in Denia, captivating an exclusive audience from the Euro Club of Denia. The event, tailored for 26 German residents, featured a three-course gourmet meal prepared by Carola, turning the showroom into a vibrant stage for gastronomic artistry.
For over fifty years, Hogarguti has stood as a beacon of innovation and quality in the home furnishings and equipment industry. Nestled in Denia and serving the broader Marina Alta region, Hogarguti specializes in kitchen furniture and much more, offering a comprehensive approach to home design. Their showroom is a testament to their expertise, where they elevate the shopping experience with show cooking events such as Carola’s, featuring renowned chefs and live cooking demonstrations.
The collaboration with Hogarguti allowed Carola to demonstrate her skills as an in-house chef, offering guests a unique blend of culinary delight and design elegance. “Show cooking is a completely different dynamic than cooking for guests during a party or private dinner. As a chef, you are almost literally in the spotlights,” Carola remarked, highlighting the interactive nature of the event.
The menu featured exquisite dishes, each a testament to Carola’s creativity and skill: Gamba Rojigualda: A sophisticated ensemble of prawn with paprika caviar, pumpkin, and Serrano. Carillada: A comforting dish of pork cheek paired with fennel risotto and mushrooms. Dulce de Oro: A dessert finale of salted caramel cake that perfectly balanced sweet and salty flavors. Carola relished the opportunity to engage with the guests, answering their queries about ingredients and techniques. “The guests have many questions about the ingredients and the preparation techniques. I think that’s great fun, because you meet many enthusiastic hobby chefs who know a lot, like to cook themselves and ask very specific questions. All cooking enthusiasts together!” she expressed, drawing parallels to the joy she finds in teaching cooking classes.
Expressing her gratitude, Carola added, “Special thanks to the Hogar Guti team for their enthusiasm, providing a stage, but also the great help in serving the 3 x 30 dishes. Teamwork makes the dream work! It was a pleasure working with all the high-quality kitchen appliances.”
For those inspired by Carola’s event, Hogarguti’s showroom is the place to explore premium kitchen designs. And if you’re considering a dinner party or any event that calls for exceptional culinary talent, La Sobremesa’s Carola Smits comes highly recommended by Spain Life Exclusive for her professionalism and exceptional cooking skills.
