I prefer smaller groups of a maximum of 6 (or 8 if from the same family/party). First we will go to the market to see the fish and shellfish. We will talk about why the Spanish claim that the best and freshest seafood can be found in Madrid, which is the furthest place from the sea! We will talk about how to spot the freshest catch and share some tips on buying seafood. We will then go for a short walk into the Malasaña district and arrive at one of Madrid's institutions for residents; a Galician hidden side street restaurant where you will have the FRESHEST, and probably most delicious shellfish platter in your life! ALL PRODUCTS ARE COOKED & WERE IN THE SEA THE EVENING BEFORE. You will need to roll up your sleeves, take your shellfish opener and napkin while you tackle freshly caught seasonal seafood of all different shapes and sizes. Not for the fish squeamish, It is a very hands on fun experience for both Shellfish newbies & the more experienced. We will teach you how to eat the products if you are not so experienced. This experience includes the best crisp white wine (from Galicia), Galician deserts & finally we will conclude with a Galician lunch finale: I will show you how the people from the costal areas of northern Spain set fire to their after dinner liquor in a huge pot! Bring your camera, not to be missed.
