Join me on a fascinating discovery of Madrid's culture, cuisine, and its history. We will meet at one of the oldest plazas in downtown Madrid and will wander through the most emblematic neighborhood in the old town. Here we will go back in history and learn about centuries-old recipes. Next, we will stop at a classic neighborhood bar where we will try one of Spain's staple dishes. Then we will step into a beautiful old market where I will share my favorite Spanish recipes. We will then travel in time as we walk down one of Madrid's most fascinating streets full of amazing stories. By now we are getting thirsty, so our next stop will take us to another classic neighborhood bar where we will taste another traditional tapa with a drink as locals do. The last part of our journey takes us to my favorite local market. I will first show you around and share with you my knowledge of local ingredients. Finally, we will have a sit-down olive oil and wine tasting, paired with some more tapas. Through our tour, I will share a number of tips and tricks to make the rest of your stay in Madrid more enjoyable. I will suggest my favorite spots to eat and drink like a true local.
I'm a professional chef with more than 25 years of experience in world cuisines. I have traveled the world in search of great ingredients and fascinating adventures. I've lived, studied and worked in Peru, USA, France, and now call Spain my home. I'm very passionate about Spanish food, their amazing ingredients, their markets, and its people. Madrid is a city where you can get lost through its streets and bump into delicious surprises. Let me show all the wonders I've discovered. When I'm not sharing my knowledge about local food and its history, I enjoy running my catering company and teaching at multiple Madrid cooking schools. Can't wait to share my Madrid with you!
