Wines From Spain is sponsoring Madrid Fusion: The Wine Edition, which seeks to bring together chefs, wine producers and sommeliers
Madrid Fusión Alimentos de España is almost upon us, and will be held from March 28th to the 30th in the Spanish capital. This major event, which has been held for the last two decades, consistently brings together the very best Spanish and international chefs and 2022 is no different.
This year, the following international chefs will be in attendance: René Redzepi (Noma), Rasmus Munk (Alchemist), Eric Vildgaard (Jordnaer), José Manuel Viejo (La Huertona), Luis Alberto Lera (Lera), and Rafa Zafra (Estimar), among many, many others. Spanish chefs will include Andoni Aduriz (Mugaritz), Dabiz Muñoz (DiverXO), Ricard Camarena (Ricard Camarena), and Rodrigo de la Calle (El Invernadero), among others.
This year's event is entitled "Beyond the product," and aims to highlight the most relevant aspects of the best traditional and modern cooking, taking a close look at ancient, traditional, and future culinary techniques. Denise Monroy, who was named Best New Chef at the Colombian version of Madrid Fusión, will present an extremely promising vegetarian project, and top names on the world pastry, cake and bread scenes will also be there, such as Franco Pepe and Jessica Préalpato as well as Spain's own Paco Torreblanca, Albert Adrià and Jordi Butrón as part of Pastry Fusión.
Trends in wine and a press trip to to the Balearic Islands
Wine will be on everyone's lips too, thanks to Madrid Fusion: The Wine Edition, now in its second year and sponsored by Wines From Spain. This portion of the events aims to connect wine with gastronomy by bringing together chefs with producers and sommeliers.
As always, ICEX will be working with Madrid Fusión by inviting a group of 15 international journalists, from Switzerland, the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, the US and Germany, to the conference. Once it’s over, they will travel to the Balearic Islands to visit local producers of olive oil, wine, and cheese and Ibérico products, such as sobrasada and Mahón cheese, with a view to writing about them and raising their profile in the media when they return home.
