Madrid Back On The Food Travel List

By mahir | January 28, 2011

I love when food and art combine.  From old-school oil paint still-lifes to contemporary artist Marina Abramovic‘s edgy new dessert, the combinations of art and food are endless.

A new art exhibition on the history of Spanish food has me adding Madrid to my travel wish list. In J.S. Marcus’ Wall Street Journal Article “It’s Time to Put Madrid Back on the Food Tourist’s Menu,” I heard about “La Cocina en su Tinta,” or “The Kitchen in Ink.”

At Spain’s national library, you can see this exhibit co-curated by food superstar Ferran Adria. The exhibit begins by showing how the Spanish people cooked centuries ago, and works its way up to chefs like Adria himself. I’m especially looking forward to seeing photographs of food markets in the mid-20th century.

If you have an upcoming visit to Madrid, “The Kitchen in Ink” should be a must-do.  Read the full article here.
