Silestone® by Cosentino plays the lead in Madrid Fusión Alimentos de España, one of the most important gastronomic events in the world. On its 20th Anniversary, the event is bringing together the main and most innovative chefs from around the world during these days in Madrid, in addition to holding different promotional actions, contests and prizes.
In fact, Silestone® has sponsored the “European Chef of the Year” prize, one of the most important highlights of the Congress. This year the organisation awarded the honour to René Redzepi. Known as the father of new Nordic nouvelle cuisine, Redzepi has been in charge of Noma since 2003, which has 3 Michelin stars, considered the best restaurant in the world many times, and recently located on the outskirts of Copenhagen.
