Madrid becomes a great festival of the senses thanks to the seventh edition of Gastrofestival, the best way of approaching gastronomy and enjoying its link with different artistic disciplines. This year, the programme will be full of enticing proposals. Cómete Madrid!
Madrid hosts a new edition of its Gastrofestival, one of the most awaited events at the beginning of each new year. From the end of January until the beginning of February, restaurants and bars throughout the city participate in some of the regular sections, such as Degustatapas (a tapa accompanied by a bottle of Mahou), Our Favourite Bars with a Rioja (tapa accompanied by a Rioja wine) and Dinner with the Stars, a proposal that brings leading international chefs to Madrid to act as invited maestros in some of today’s most renowned kitchens. Last year’s edition included the Italian chef, Giuseppe Iannotti at El Club Allard, offering a spectacular truffle-based dinner using four hands.
Many other initiatives aimed at the most discerning palates form part of the Gastrofestival programme, such as the Sweet Tooth Route, the Colombian Coffee Route or even a fun squid baguette competition. There will also be special menus at affordable prices in many restaurants, which will be divided into two sections depending on the speciality of the establishment, Spanish Cuisine and Cuisine of the World. This year there will be no lack of the traditional Menus by Elle, with suggestive proposals in the city’s trendiest restaurants.
Restaurants, gourmet and household stores, cocktail bars, clothes and accessories boutiques, cultural institutions, art galleries, museums and culinary schools will also offer all types of actions and offers within various categories: Gastronomic Madrid, Sensory Experiences, Gastroculture, Gastrofashion, Gastrohealth, Design and Gastronomy and Eno-culture.
