Madrid: gastronomic kilometer zero of the Zone Diet
Looking for new gastronomic recipes, in the heart of Madrid we drop by the Kitchen Club cooking school. There we discovered the perfect summer menu by the chef Íñigo Urrechu, following the guidelines of the Zone Diet.
Our meeting point: the Kitchen Club (Ballesta, 8), a multipurpose center that offers an extensive calendar of cooking, cocktail and wine courses. Also, after class they organize a food or dinner where you will enjoy everything you have prepared. On this occasion, and with Iñigo Urrechu As a teacher, we prepare healthy and healthy recipes following the advice of the Zone Diet.
Iñigo Urrechu began in kitchen in 1987 by the hand of Martín Berasategui until in 2002 he got the dream of his life: to have his own restaurant, located in the C.C. Souk of Pozuelo, in Madrid. Urrechu has a wonderful recreation of the atmosphere of the Basque cider houses, in which to enjoy a wide variety of creative and Basque-style skewers. All this without forgetting the traditional cider house menu, in which you can not miss the Cod omelette, or the splendid Iberian chacinas Y artisan cheeses, served by the Spanish champion of ham cutters.
