Cooking Vacations in Madrid
Madrid is not just the capital of Spain, it is also a province in the middle of the country, known for its diverse geography and its amazingly rich history. From the soaring peaks of the Guadarrama mountain range to the unspoiled lowlands, the region is full of natural wonders that lend themselves to rich gastronomic products.
But of course it is known mostly for its capital city, one of Europe's great metropolises, home to the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum, and the Real Madrid football club, as well as many other famed monuments, churches, and cultural sites.
As one of Europe's largest cities, it is no surprise that from a culinary standpoint Madrid has incorporated influences not only from Spain's other regions, but also from other European capitals. But like most other Spanish cities, the traditions of the "tapeo" (going bar to bar to taste different tapas dishes) combine with both centuries-old culinary traditions and the height of modern gastronomy to create dishes that will intrigue and satisfy.
