On 3 December 2018 the museum published the book Thyssen en el plato (Thyssen on a plate), in which 25 leading Spanish chefs write about the relationship of their cooking with certain works in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. Alhambra was the proud sponsor of this event.
The live music and the excellent food created the perfect backdrop for this culinary tome. The chefs that took part in this literary project created dishes that were inspired by various paintings they chose from our permanent collection. The chefs that contributed to the book were Andoni Luis Aduriz, Samy Alí, Víctor Arguinzoniz Juan Mari and Elena Arzak, Sura Ascaso, Oriol Balaguer, Martín Berasategui, Juan Manuel de la Cruz, Quique Dacosta, Andrea Dopico, Lucía Freitas, Gonzalo García, Luis G. Búa, Diego Guerrero, Sacha Hormaechea, Ángel León, Roberto Martínez Foronda, Paco Morales, Toño Pérez, Albert Raurich, Roberto Ruiz, Carme Ruscalleda, Jesús Sánchez, Ricardo Sanz, Paco Torreblanca and Manuel Urbano.
