Weekly Bites #1: The Spanish Virgin Issue

Welcome to Weekly Bites edition #1. This is our weekly round up of food news from around the internet and around the world.

This week’s edition has taken on a Spanish theme. Maybe because we’re craving some sun, but more likely it’s because we’re a little jealous of our friends in Madrid. Monday sees the start of Madrid Fusion, the annual food event that draws in a mega list of mega chefs. This year’s lineup includes two of the Roca brothers (from El Celler de Can Roca, currently topping the list of World’s Best Restaurants), Ferran Adrià (El Bulli), David Chang (Momofuku Ko), René Redzépi (Noma), and countless other top chefs. For a full schedule and tickets click here. We’ll have a little roundup of the highlights in next week’s edition.

If you’re not in Madrid next week but need some motivation to book a 2016 Spanish foodie holiday then have a read of the Spanish Sabores’ 12 Extraordinary Food Experiences in Spain to Add to Your Bucket List.

For those contemplating a trip to Spain’s gastronomical hotspot of San Sebastian, Kang from London Eater gives a wrap up of Pintxos in San Sebastian.

After a night of pintxos you may be in need of a strong coffee to get you moving again. To help you along the team at Devour Madrid tours have A Guide To Ordering Coffee In Spain. After reading this you’ll be able to navigate your way between Café con Hielos and Café Bombons.

Across the border in Portugal the team at Culinary Backstreets serve up a suggestion on where to get proper home cooked Portuguese food in Lisbon.

For this week’s featured blogger review we look at Sam Stewart from Food Expectations’ perfect 10 out of 10 review of Daniel Berlin in Sweden. Despite being in Sweden it’s only 1 ½ hours drive from Copenhagen and is somewhat easier to get a reservation in than Noma.

If you’re in London and are looking to trim your eating out food budget, then Leyla from The Cutlery Chronicles is here to help; this month her and her team launched London Cheap Eats. An online guide to where to eat in London for under £8. Bargain!

And in other news, proving that heavy drinking dictators make the best kind of dictators, scientists in North Korea have developed hangover free alcohol. Bottoms up.
