Our Madrid Cooking Vacations
Cooking Vacations In Madrid
If you are looking for a cooking vacation or food and wine tour of Spain, a Madrid food tour might be just the thing for you. Did you know that Madrid is not only the capital city but also the region surrounding it, called the Community of Madrid, and home to an amazing gastronomy that you can explore on our gourmet Madrid wine tours or culinary vacations?
Experience the capital city during a Madrid food tour or on a Madrid wine tour and explore the amazing culture of one of Europe’s most fashionable and cosmopolitan cities. Madrid is home to the Royal Palace, as well as the “golden triangle of art”: the Prado Museum (pre-20th-century art), the Reina Sofia (20th-century art), and the Thyssen-Bornemisza (a national collection of historical to contemporary art). You can see some of the world’s most prized masterpieces in this one city, including works by famous Spanish artists such as Pablo Picasso, Francisco Goya, Diego Velàsquez, Joan Mirò, and Salvador Dalí. Madrid is also famously the home of the Real Madrid football club, as well as such cultural sites as the Plaza Mayor, the Puerta del Sol, and El Retiro Park.
Spanish Gastronomy and Madrid Food Tours
But the capital city Madrid offers more than just cultural delights. It is a center of gastronomy and as such an ideal location for our Madrid food tours. Whether you want fine dining or tapas, Madrid is full of amazing food to explore, always paired with excellent wines that you can taste as part of our Madrid wine tours. Stop for a churro with rich hot chocolate, a vermouth aperitif and some tapas, or a gourmet dinner paired with Rioja wines, and you’ll understand why Madrid is a capital of gastronomy.
The region surrounding the capital city is well worth an exploration during any of our gourmet Madrid tours, our Madrid wine tours, olive mill visits, hands-on cooking classes, and more. Some of the communities you can visit outside the capital city are Chinchón, San Lorenzo de el Escorial, Alcalà de Henares (birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote), and Aranjuez, each of which offers world and cultural heritage sites of note as well as gastronomic products that make them ideal places to explore on a Madrid food tour.
Our Madrid food tours will include hands-on cooking classes featuring regional dishes such as cocido madrileño (a pork stew), bocadillos de calamares (fried squid sandwich), callos a la madrileña (a hearty stew of sausage and offal), tortilla (Spanish omelette), and more. And don’t forget the wonderful wines that you will taste on our wine tasting tours in Madrid Spain, many of which feature such famous Spanish varietals as Granache, Tempranillo, and Syrah.
