Fruit and Vegetable Market - Plaza de Castilla





 Sunday at the market. Sunday mornings there is an outdoors market at plaza de Castilla where I usually go to refurbish my fresh vegetable and fruit weekly needs. The market has also cloths and others but I do not recommend that sector. You need to get to the end of the market (which starts at Plaza de Castilla) at the corner of Avda de Asturias and calle Pinos baja, park there, so you are really close for transportation, and walk around to find the best bargain. Quality is good as directly gown and picked from your yard and prices are very convenient.

This is my today's purchase: 1 kilo eggplants, 1 kilo borraja, 5 kilos mandarines, 1,5 kilo artichokes, 1 kilo tomatoes, 1 kilo green butter beans, 2 kilo kiwis, 1 kilo carrots, 1 lettuce, 1 kilo courgettes, 1 kilo sweet beet and 1 red cabbage for a total price of €23,85. Not bad!

Accademia del Gusto - Cooking school


If you happen to like Italian cuisine, which is quite universal, here is a good hint: Accademia del Gusto. Alluring and energetic Nicoletta Negrini has opened this new concept in Madrid, offering from Italian cooking lessons to Italian genuine products that you cannot find elsewhere (for example stracchino or guanciale). There is also a lunch menu offered for a convenient price but the real must is to organize a private dinner for a maximum of 14, where Chef Enrica Barni will cook in front of guests in a very intimate dining room located upstairs. Something different to surprise Italian food lovers!
