Gala Evening

The Congress Gala Evening was held in the palatial Casino de Madrid on Sunday 27 October. The significance of its artistic collection led the Casino de Madrid to be officially declared as a building of National Cultural Interest in 1993.

The evening began with a standing dinner in the main reception room of the casino. The catering was provided 2 Star Michelin chef, Paco Roncero. Roncero's scientific approach to the culinary arts comes from his years working under Ferran Adrià, the founder of gastronomic mecca el Bulli. Read more about the molecular gastronomy used by Roncero in his innovative cooking at El Pais.

After this amazing culinary experience we moved to a different part of the Casino de Madrid for a fun disco party… to discover just what the word Fiesta really means!
