Did you know that Spain produced the most heady and fabulous black truffles? Or that it’s delicious baby eels cost as much as the price of gold? And nobility and aristocracy for over five centuries continues to produce the most exquisite olive oil? Im learning and eating and tasting, attending discussions at a rapid speed. Making the most of my time at the most prestigious 16th edition of Madrid Fusion. This global food congress magnetises the finest from around the world; over a 100 chefs from 15 countries , technical demos, training workshops. Its all here…from discussions on haute cuisine and copyright, wine tastings to new generation of rebellious cooks. Orchestrating it all is Esmeralda Capel and family, Ofcourse many a Michelin starred maestro, here, like Mario Sandoval ( holding the black truffles) Im Tasting the finest and rarest olive oils made by Aristocracy (Marques de Grinon, Xandra falcons Alonso Marchesi de Valdueza) going on guided Tapas tours and most importantly devouring knowledge. Bliss!
