In Spanish they call it ¨inquietud¨. In English we might call it ¨restlessness¨.
In 2010 my restlessness propelled me to Sevilla, Spain, a city so alive and infatuating that it left me enamored with Spanish culture and enchanted by Spanish food. That same itch to explore led me to Washington, D.C. where I brunched and blogged my way through the 2012 presidential election. It drove me to rainy Galicia where I learned how to make traditional chorizo in a 600-year-old barn, tasted more parts of a pig that I ever thought edible and left my footprints along the path of an ancient pilgrimage.
In 2013 my restless tastebuds found their way to Madrid. Six months in the Spanish capital and I was hooked. With more restaurants and bars per capita than anywhere else in the world, I have a lifetime of new tastes to try. My restless fork has met its match.
This blog is my way of sharing the scrumptiousness. Whether it’s a guide to the most fabulous cafés and cookie shops in the hip(ster) barrio Malasaña or a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world’s oldest restaurant, the goal of Restless Fork is to show the passion that goes into every bite of the stellar food in Madrid and beyond. I hope you’ll come explore with me.
