The cultural center A Point , located in Madrid's Chueca district, looks like a cute bookstore judging from the facade and interior decoration, but more than that. It is a cultural center that offers the same culinary specialized books of novels and poetry titles. It is also a cooking school, a center for tastings with sommeliers and experts to a gastronomic travel agency in Spain. Inside, organize competitions, wine tastings and other products, and cultural festivals with the participation of writers and chefs.
Imagine a place where those interested in food culture can take cooking classes, attend tastings, buy books and cookbooks and, above all, share experiences and perspectives with others. That is the role of cultural centers and purpose of The Point, a library and cooking school that describes itself as "cultural center of taste."
A Point library, in addition to specialized degrees in kitchen has a wide range of books that address the food from the poetry and narrative. Anagram sells several titles related to food and wine and other items. It also has a selection of comics , where we can find titles like gourmet lonely and I would have loved to be winemaker.
A point of interest in literature, in fact, took his own to organize a gastronomic short story contest, called "One hundred words to eat them." The prize is a course in the writing workshop and Gervasio Posadas Carmen, and a lot of cookbooks or culinary novels for second place (much more attractive, I think). If you live in Spain and are interested, you can participate. Check the call : you have until September 14 to submit your text.
I do not know if in Spain there is another library with the same characteristics, but the idea is good. In Mexico we should have something, a place on the relationship of food with other manifestations of culture, which becomes wider experience. And who sells books that talk about eating.
