Food and wine fiesta
In Spain, a food and wine fiesta is commonly called dinner. So intrinsic is the idea of celebrating every meal in this country that for a tourist, it can be a daunting realisation just how much time these folks spend on meals.
But they don’t eat large portions, and yet manage to include a variety of food that shows double-digit variety. So when a country like this decides to put a food conference together, you know just how eclectic, how rich, and how tempting the final line-up will be.
Madrid Fusion is the name of the event where I was fortunate enough to be for the second time. Since my previous visit, which was a good few years ago, the event had grown and transferred to another (larger) venue. There was visibly more wine and beverages but outside of that, the show was fairly along similar lines.
The event is structured around talks by some of the world’s greatest chefs—from Japan to Peru, Finland to South Africa—and each chef presents his views, shares his experiences, and forwards his theories for food as we know it, and as they see it evolving.
And then, to complement all this, they have another stage where wine tastings and wine events are conducted throughout the day. The regions of Spain—plenty of Ribera del Duero
