Madrid Tales 7 - Research Completed

Chef Paco Roncero was a great host, allowing us use of his innovation lab at Casino de Madrid.
A highlight was working for two days with expert food scientist Professor Peter Barham.
We learnt a lot about food production with Peter and his knowledge of ingredients was astonishing.
Getting a few last jobs done for the day.

Chef Adam Melonas with Chef Paco Roncero, it was great to work closely with Adam and we hope to do so again soon.

Beautiful dining room at Casino de Madrid.

Well our time is up here in Madrid, we have been working hard on a big research and development project and are very happy with the results. It has been great working with so many inspirational food experts and highlights include, working closely with Adam Melonas, Peter Barham and Quico Sosa. Paco Roncero was a perfect host and we even met chef Joan Roca in the lab last week. We made two trips to Leatherhead Food Research in the UK to discuss new technologies in confectionary and that was inspiring. We are looking forward to returning to Madrid and exploring more of this fantastic city.
