The food, much like the language, is how you truly understand and immerse yourself within the culture and cultural experience that defines the city and its people.

Food is what unites people, brings a sense of community, but food is so much more than just eating and just fuelling your body - in Madrid, there is so much ceremony, family, love and a huge connection with the land and nature that surround and influence the cuisine.
