Foodies in Madrid – Best bites (& sips) plus why do you listen to When in Spain?

I look back at a few food and drink episodes from last year. I sample some beautiful Jamón Ibérico with food guide Margit Sperling from Walk and Eat Spain.  Then I quaff wine and explore the world of Spanish vino with Luke Darracott and Roque Madrid from Madrid & Darracott.

From grape to grain with a stop-off at La Osita bar where I chat with owners and brewers David and Patrick about their own Madrid brewed craft beer and the craft beer scene in Spain.

From there I pay a visit to some nuns, even though I can´t see them, to buy some biscuits through a secret door at the Carboneras Church and Convent. Then we wrap things up chatting to Sam and Veren from Alternative Travelers about the vegan food scene in Madrid and beyond.

Also in this episode I read out some reviews and responses to the question – Why do you listen to the When in Spain podcast? Where do you listen? What´s your favourite episode?
