Thanks to last year’s successful Manila debut of Madrid Fusion’s first Asian Edition, one of the world’s most prestigious gastronomic congress, Madrid Fusion Manila is back at the SMX Convention Center this year from April 7 to 9, with a “The Manila Galleon: East Meets West” theme.

Like last year, this world renowned culinary event will once again bring together some of the world’s most celebrated chefs to the Philippine shores, to share and demonstrate their culinary experiences and masterpieces to the trade, together with some of our very own top chefs,  via a 3-day International Gastronomy Congress and a Gourmet Trade Expo.
