Fusing Adeje’s gastronomy in Asisa Madrid Fusión 2017 #amf17

Madrid Fusión runs from January 23rd – 25th 2017 with Tenerife as one of the invited destinations with the chance to show off the island’s gastronomic values and local produce.


Asisa Madridfusión 2017, the international Gastronomy Congress, opened its doors January 23 2017 with plenty to celebrate. The first is that it has now reached its 15th edition, having grown.

Adeje’s councillor for economic development, Manuel Luis Méndez Martín, is in Madrid this week at ‘Madrid Fusión’, an international gastronomy event celebrated every year in the Spanish capital with professionals from all over the world in attendance.

The Adeje councillor says he has three main objectives during his visit: “Attend the talks to make sure Adeje’s ideas are part of the mix; be there for the professionals from our borough who have travelled to demonstrate their skills, creativity and ability, such as Pablo Pastor, Braulio Simancas or Juan Carlos Clemente; establish contacts in the world of gastronomy that may help the borough in the future.

Culinary schools

Méndez Martín has meet with Rosario Barrios Cono during his stay. She is the Spanish director of ‘Le Cordon Bleu’ the main culinary school dedicated to this branch of cooking in Europe. The school is located in the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria, in Madrid, and following the meeting with the Adeje councillor, Barrios Cono confirmed she will visit Adeje in the coming months to get to know the borough’s installations ahead of agreeing a series of training projects here.
