As the Madrid Fusión food festival begins, meet the country’s rising culinary stars and chew over a trip to their restaurants, where there are affordable menus to be enjoyed before fame strikes
All prices are for food onlyNungwi Village
In recent years Spain’s culinary scene has created a number of true food heroes: from Ferran Adrià’s molecular magic at the famed elBulli (which closed in 2011) and Juan Mari and Elena Arzak’s incredible reinvention of Basque specialities to Andoni Aduriz’s exquisite minimalism in the middle of the Basque countryside. Unfortunately, such high-end establishments are now too expensive for most us. So is there a way to enjoy Spain’s top cuisine at more affordable prices? Yes, as it happens, by tracking down the latest generation of chefs and getting a taste of their cooking before fame (or notoriety) takes them to the next level.
