The month of the Madrid tripe
Throughout the month of November, take place the 'Jornadas Gastronómicas de los Callos', an annual appointment with this dish typical of our cuisine that Madrid's restaurants have taken to the top. Different taverns in the capital city, prepare special menus with tripe as the main characters, for a recommended menu price of €30 (VAT included). Don't miss this sixth edition, choose a restaurant and taste its menu.
As we advanced you at the beginning, and in spite of the poor rainfall of the last months, several localities of the region set in motion their programming directed so much to the mycology lovers as to those people who want to acquire a basic formation to learn to distinguish the most common mushrooms.
Those interested will be able to participate in the field trips, accompanied by a mycological guide, which will take place on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at 9:45am and 12:15pm, in different stages of the Sierra de Guadarrama. The chosen place will be known the previous Thursday, and the price of this activity of limited places, is €15, so if you are interested book yours by email at

In the town of Hoyo de Manzanares, mycological guided excursions have been scheduled on 18 and 25 November for an audience aged 8 years and over. After an introductory talk, we will take our wicker basket and knife to try to collect edible mushrooms by using the knowledge acquired by an expert mycologist.

If you want even more you can participate in the photographic contest 'Setas, hongos y su cocina', or in the 'Marcha guiada por La Cabilda y Las Viñas' that will take place on 11 November.
