Adding to the growing trend for Off The Plate experiences in food - the world famous chef Paco Roncero has created a multi-sensory workshop and dining space inside the Casino de Madrid building.
It's designed to mix relationships between food, shapes, light, color, sound, flavor and even temperature and looks like a restaurant from the future.
The space features diffusers in the ceiling that, as well as keeping the space at a perfect humidity, can spray special scents into the room during a meal to enhance the dining experience of visitors.
It seats nine people who can take notes directly on the ceramic table in the centre of the room - there's even a wall mounted with more than 200 different types of olive oil and a screen to display information about each.
The table vibrates and the entire room is designed to add a whole new sensory experience to food - something we've seen already with the Roca brothers plans for a culinary opera and the light and video installation at the Adria's 41 Degrees restaurant in Barcelona.
Unfortunately this is just a research area for the chef and guests can only be invited to dine there at the moment. An exciting project that we can't wait to see open to the public.
These are tough times for chefs and restaurant professionals around the world, but there has never been a better time to seek advice and help around a number of topics affecting hospitality workers. Here's a round-up of some of the most useful resources for chefs.
