I will be with a colleague/photographer on assignment in Saville in early May, and am interested in contacting individuals who are connected with local boutique and upscale hotels (in town preferably, but also open to nearby areas with easy access to the city center)--such as P.R. reps, hotel managers, travel marketing companies and so on.  We are looking for three nights, and are also open to splitting up the stay between properties. 

I will be doing two gastronomy stories focused on innovative Sherry-food pairings and Sherry-based cocktails for wine-focused publications, and one about Saville cuisine in general for a newsstand consumer magazine.


Look forward to hearing from you--please contact me at ejglickmanmedia@gmail.com. You can see my work  at ElyseGlickman.com

All the best, and thank you in advance for your help!

Thanks so much, Ed! I keep trying to go somewhere and focus on Culture and Important Sights and next thing you know I spend my time eating! Ah well... :-)

Comment by Ed Wetschler on August 28, 2013 at 3:51pm

Lelya, I can't agree with you on innards, but I sure agree with everything else. Love your writing, love your shout-out to Pimientos del Padron.

Try as I might, any travel adventure will always lead back to food... And sometimes I do try hard!

Tapas of Santiago: Falling in Love with Pimientos del Padron

Euskadi is such an underrated part of Spain - I've loved it ever since visiting Donostia (aka San Sebastian) for the first time in 1980.

Comment by Matthew Hirtes on June 16, 2013 at 1:34pm

Sorry for costing you money, Leyla. But it'll be worth it. I love history and literature. So my current read, Wolf Hall, is a match made in heaven.

Comment by Leyla Giray Alyanak on June 16, 2013 at 1:31pm

Thanks Matthew - I'm off to order both. You're tugging at my heartstrings because I have a background in political science and I'm a journalist... so history, commentary and politics are actually my idea of a good time! :-)

Comment by Matthew Hirtes on June 16, 2013 at 1:30pm

Leyla, well worth you checking out Mark Kurslanksy's Basque History of the World. Plenty of recipes in there too. Also Dave Boling's Guernica is a literary commentary on what the Basque Country suffered thanks to Franco. I do not advocate terrorism, but if you read either or both books you can possibly understand the origins of ETA without in any way sympathising with their methods.

Comment by Leyla Giray Alyanak on June 16, 2013 at 12:05pm

Thanks for your kind words, Donna! I grew up in Spain and as a child I remember the Basque country was a place we rarely mentioned, let alone visited. Even this time after all that history I admit I went with a bit of trepidation. Although most families were in some way affected, they're preferring to move on and were focused on the future, not the past.

Comment by Donna Esposito on June 16, 2013 at 11:58am

Good blog post, Leyla. I visited Bilbao a few years ago when the ETA was making trouble, and I'm glad you don't ignore that. But today, 2013, on to the food! I clicked on your link because of this photo of the pulpo and I found that all your photos are wonderful. Great memories!
