A Punto is a cultural centre of tastes, a bookshop and the official headquarters of Slow Food in Spain. Its wine tasting room and a kitchen are a meeting place where people come to learn about gastronomy and wine.
A Punto was born from the desire of its four partners to make Madrid the place where gastronomic culture could have his spreading.
Sara Cucala and Ana Lorente, reknown gastronomic journalists, are running the centre and offer their professional knowledge to create the courses.
The idea came from visiting book shops all over the world and turned into a cultural centre of tasting with cooking lessons, wine tastings, conferences and the newly created gastronomic tours.
The pioneering initiative of the gastronomic tours in the neighborhoods of Salamanca district stem from the aim to let people know that not only the historical centre of Madrid is full of gastronomic activities.
The whole A Punto space (bookshop, tasting room and kitchen) is opened to the development of cultural activities linked to the world of literature and gastronomy.
More than 6000 titles in Spanish and English, at A Punto can be found theory and practice of the big cooks, the traditional and innovative use of any kind of ingredients and any kind of recipes.
A cosy space where we arrange any kind of tastes wine, beer, spices etc with the supervision of Ana Lorente for a maximum of 15 people.
A big kitchen where groups can share fires and enjoy the experience of learning how to prepare mediterrean, Mexican, Japanese and many other plates with the help of the best cooks of Spain.
In A punto we count on the experience of some of the most known chefs of Madrid such as Joaquin Felipe from Urban Restaurant or Andrés Madrigal from Alboroque. Every body cooks and takes away recipes and his own plates.
A Punto organizes tours every week all around the most important districts of Madrid and its neighborhoods with the idea to let visitors discover Madrid’ gastronomic offer.
