Cauliflower Burgers Anyone?

Happy October 1st to everyone. One of my favorite seasons is upon us. The end of September was very eventful for me. I began my internship with Mad4Madrid which is a site dedicated to all things Madrid. I am learning so much about the ins and outs of running a successful blog and site. Also, through them I have already done some amazing things.

I did my first menu tasting event for Hard Rock Café. Can I say what an amazing experience! I visited a Hard Rock Café location about 11 years ago when I was visiting Australia and from what I can remember I had a great time but I have never been back until this menu tasting. And boy let me tell you, I might have to start making Hard Rock Café a stop on any trip I do. Yes, it was that good. The food was absolutely amazing and can you believe my two favorite meals of the day were vegetarian. The cauliflower burger was my absolute favorite (hence the title).

This salad was also pretty darn good. The meat on it is tuna.

The new cocktail they are adding. A gin based drink. 

In my time here I never thought about taking a paella class. I do love the dish but it never crossed my mind that it might be a simple dish to make. For those of you who don’t know, paella is a typical Spanish dish that originated in Valencia, Spain. The main ingredient is rice and you can either have meat, seafood or both added.

This is what paella looks like. 

I was able to participate in Ruta de La Paella’s master class with a Valencian chef Ramon Pallmo. I was shocked how easy it was to make. It’s a one-pot dish literally.

Housing update:

I finally found a room and was able to move in right away. I actually love the room and location. Its not city center like I first wanted but everything is literally a 30 minute metro ride or less. And I am also next to a huge park, Casa de Campo. Fun fact about Casa de Campo apparently its about 10x bigger than Central Park in New York.
