Ayala malls supports The Gastronomy Festival in celebration of Madrid Fusion Manila

The Ayala Malls opens up an exciting world of flavor with The Gastronomy Festival

Madrid fusion was launched last March 26 at Fairmont Hotel. Madrid Fusion Manila puts the spotlight on the Philippines as an Asian center of gastronomy, and to promote the country as a top culinary destination for 2015. Being one of the banner projects of “Visit the Philippines 2015”,

An explosion of bold flavors, exotic ingredients and mouthwatering aromas are set to tickle the palate in the most, exciting way through the first local edition of Madrid Fusion.

For more than 12 years, Madrid Fusion has been the most important international gastronomic event on progressive haute cuisine in Spain, and for the first time in history, the event will be held outside Madrid, and comes to the Philippines through the efforts of the Department of Tourism.
