Rocio Jurado-Estaba para comersela
Rocio Jurado, La Mas Grande, one of the best (along with Lola Flores) in Spain's pantheon of Andalusian folcloricas, has been immortalized by a Cordoba based chocolate producer called Gallo (cock). They are renowned for their Belen (Christmas Manger) made from chocolate but this year they kicked it up a notch by creating an edible sculpture of this most scrumptious and fabulous performer. According to the video (above) and news articles, the sweet surrogate was placed in a simulated tablao flamenco (place where you perform this musical genre). Had I known about this sooner, I would have booked the first flight to Cordoba. Viva Rocio!
