I went to an outstanding exhibition about the history of Spanish food called "La Cocina en su Tinta," (The Kitchen in Ink) at Spain's national library (Biblioteca Nacional de España).

 

The exhibition starts with late-Gothic cookbooks and archaic cooking utensils, and brings us all the way up to recipes from the contemporary "stars"-chefs.
