The Table by La Salita

If you live in Madrid you have probably heard about The Table, which has been in Madrid now for over a year bring ever month a new chef from around Spain to Madrid. Last month we we went to La Salita, now it is too late to visit Begoña Rodrigo in Madrid but I have to say that I fell in love with her cooking and I am thinking if she cooked so well away from home, she must be fantastic in her kitchen.

La Salita is in Valencia, and now that summer is around the corner many of you may be planning a trip down to get some sun and fresh sea air and I believe that La Salita may very well be a nice place to get a good meal.

When she was in Madrid we had five mini appetizers which were served in a kind of open, two-story teepee followed by a tiara of pickled and salted  fish. This plate I found to be simply lovely.
