Cellar Tours has created this very special gourmet weekend to highlight the best the city has to offer. You'll enjoy a private cooking class by the very charming Pilar Latorre, Madrid's Catalan born chef du jour, in her elegant home. This is a unique experience to meet local personalities. A trained art guide will show you the secrets and little known anecdotes in the world famous Prado museum, home to paintings by Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Bosch, Tiziano and more. You'll discover Madrid's charming "tapas" bars with your friendly food and wine guide for the afternoon, tasting exquisite smoked cod, roast peppers, artisan cheeses, and "pintxos" (rustic bread topped with goodies ranging from "Cabrales" Asturian blue cheese and walnuts to organic pork in a mustard sauce). You'll taste a multitude of Spanish wines by the glass, from the zippy Verdejo based whites of Rueda to rich reds from Toro and sweeties from Malaga and Jerez.
For "Foodies", Madrid has avant-garde Michelin starred restaurants and a rash of up and coming, lesser known chefs. For wine lovers, Madrid has marvellous wine bars. You can visit our favorite Sherry bar, tasting "Palo Cortados" from the barrel, or visit a wine bar that has over 500 wines from all over the world and a Japanese chef creating "Fusion tapas". If you want to discover the best food wine and culture Madrid has to offer, you will love Cellar Tours' gourmet weekends.
