All of the leading international types of cuisine are well represented in the major Spanish cities
The European capitals are multi-racial and multi-religious stages free from cultural prejudices. The mixture is more and more unstoppable and we are going through a period in which cross-breeding is widespread and the concept of national has to bear these derivations in mind. Globalization, which only used to be visible on other European stages, is now common in our cities. One of the fields in which it is most evident is cuisine, which has always been subject to influences and in which any foreign element is extremely enriching.
It is an extremely permeable discipline, which is extraordinarily grateful of new things. Simple. It is what clients are asking for. In other words, gastronomy is delighted to receive any suggestions no matter how remote or uncertain they may be, and it also has the advantage of knowing, almost like no other human discipline, how to show the history and the evolution of the people. That’s why the exchange of know-how and flavours that occurs every day in our cities is so positive.
Today, the world is an immense global market. All of the products coincide at any time and in any setting. The world’s major cities have become colourful and vast showcases with diverse and varied delicious ingredients that are not only a pleasure for the senses, but also offer unquestionable enrichment. In our cities, everything can be eaten today and this is a clear reason for celebration.
Thanks to their cosmopolitan vocation, the major Spanish cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Seville or Valencia have been leading exponents of this trend for some time and places where these other types of cuisine can be found are better represented. Spain is a huge Tower of Babel from the culinary point of view, where it is possible to eat whilst respecting diverse traditions.
In our establishments, the surprising phenomenon occurs in which Japanese or Peruvian cuisine, which has been all the rage for several years, is far better represented than that of many Spanish regions. This is also the case for Mexican or Chinese, North African or Central European, Argentinian or American, Russian or Greek cuisine. They all enable lovers of fine dining to take never-ending trip around the world without leaving the table.
