  • The renowned chef and Avianza, the Spanish Interprofessional Association of Poultry Meat, have joined forces to hold a cooking workshop to highlight the benefits of grilled poultry meat.
  • This masterclass took place on 7 July at the SUA by Tricycle restaurant and was attended by some exceptional students, including food and lifestyle journalists and bloggers.
  • Goya, a specialist in embers, developed the workshop by tackling the whole process to make a good poultry barbecue: from the preparation, the type of cooking and temperatures of the embers, to the different cuts and carving, to finish with the plating and the different culinary combinations. 

Madrid, 8 July 2022 - Summer is the barbecue season par excellence. Around the embers, family and friends gather to enjoy gastronomy and outdoor leisure. With the aim of continuing this tradition in the healthiest way possible, Avianza, the Spanish Interprofessional Association of poultry meat, and the expert chef Javier Goya, have joined forces to highlight the benefits of the poultry barbecue.

To this end, Goya gave a masterclass at his restaurant SUA by Triciclo, aimed mainly at journalists and bloggers specialising in lifestyle and gastronomy, where he revealed his secrets to making a first-class poultry barbecue. For more than an hour, the chef covered the whole process: from preparation, the type of cooking and temperatures of the grill, to the different cuts and carving, to finish with the plating and the different culinary combinations. 

The menu prepared and tasted by SUA by Triciclo with Javier Goya consisted of free-range chicken wings stuffed with mussel pickle and grilled; grilled smoked turkey salad, anchovy emulsion, old mustard and cured cheese and grilledquail jerky.

After this presentation as a workshop, the association will publish a free downloadable ebook with the history of grilled chicken and different and tasty recipes for barbecued poultry. Anyone interested in obtaining this digital book will soon be able to find it on the Avianza website.  

"With these actions and with the collaboration of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and Food of Spain, Avianza wants to continue to promote consumption in our country. Spanish poultry meat is healthy and of high quality, which is why we must continue to promote its benefits with actions such as this", said Jordi Montfort, Avianza's Secretary General, adding that "Spain is also one of the main poultry meat producers in Europe, where more than 750 million birds of Spanish origin are consumed every year. We have a growing sector of which we should be proud".

The battle for good taste and delicious dishes is very close between the three, despite the fact that they all share virtues and win the battle to be the healthiest of the range of meats on the market. Here are five reasons why poultry meat will win your heart and, of course, your desire to cook it:

  1. Poultry meat is easy to digest and very economical. These meats, especially chicken, in addition to their versatility and nutritional properties, are one of the favourites of children. An added value when it comes to cooking for the little ones in the house. 
  2. Poultry meat's main source of nutrients is protein, as it is a good source of essential amino acids, those that our organism does not synthesise and which must be consumed for a healthy diet. A serving of 100 grams can contain between 110 and 215 calories. It is a good source of protein and monounsaturated fatty acids .
  3. With its high protein content, poultry meat helps in the fight against bone loss and provides our bodies with a large amount of phosphorus, an essential mineral that nourishes the teeth and bones, as well as the kidneys and liver.
  4. It is precisely because of the high protein levels that they provide so much energy. In addition, the metabolism burns calories so that it can manage a healthy weight and a good level of activity. It is easy to digest and is well tolerated by those suffering from digestive disorders as its connective tissue is easier to disintegrate.
  5. Poultry meat supports growth and muscle development . This is why this meat is highly recommended for youngsters. What's more, the easy digestibility of chicken meat is combined with its satiating effect, which helps us to avoid snacking between meals.

So whenever you want to celebrate something, count on poultry meats to make your dishes and your diet healthy and appetising.


MADRID, 20 December 2021

For some years now, turkey has been associated with the American holiday of Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve dinner, but nevertheless, both for its versatility when it comes to cooking it and for its nutritional characteristics, we should include it in our daily diet. Here are a few reasons why we should do so.

  1. It is a natural recuperator after sport

Thanks to its high protein and amino acid content, turkey meat is perfect to eat after a training session because it helps us recover muscle. Whether grilled or in sausages, turkey will give us a boost to avoid the dreaded stiffness.

  • He is the king of the "line".

Turkey is lean meat and contains 2.2 grams of fat per 100 grams of product and provides 107 calories per 100 grams of meat, as long as we discard the skin, which accumulates a greater amount of fat. In addition, thanks to its high water content, it helps us to stay hydrated, a very important aspect in diets.

  • Care for your heart

Turkey meat contains healthy fatty acids that help us to have a strong and healthy heart by keeping the risk of cardiovascular diseases at bay.

  • Zzzzzz

Eating turkey meat will help you sleep better, why? The high levels of tryptophan it contains help regulate the amount of serotonin the body produces and, consequently, help maintain the sleep cycle properly.
