In Madrid but you don’t fancy a long walking tour? Or simply want a short introduction to what the gastronomy is all about before you set out to conquer it with a fork? Well, we’ve the ideal solution. Join us at one of our “Introduction to Tapas” sessions which are held daily in central Madrid. In a comfortable and friendly setting we go through a short history of what “Tapas” is, and go through the regions of Spain describing their more famous dishes. All this while constantly bringing out fresh portions from the kitchen and a brief wine and cheese tasting section.
We’ll help you practice ordering, with phrases and prices, giving you typical requests and responses, but not overloading you either. Then, when it’s all over we’ll give you a few recommendations around the city of where to go for certain dishes that you have expressed an interest in.
