“In our A Taste of Spain class, we have feasted our senses on the food and the culture of Catalonia” Anne Weaver, editor of realfoodtraveler.com
If you plan to visit Barcelona and you love food, reserve a few hours to enjoy this small journey into the Mediterranean kitchen… You’ll discover one of the secrets of Spanish cuisine: the use of the freshest ingredients.
Barcelona is an excellent example, taking from the quiet sea and fertile lands of Catalonia. You’ll experience this on a private guided visit to the famous Boqueria market, near Las Ramblas. Set in a 19th century Modernist building, it is a true paradise for foodies! With your first glance at the colorful, endless variety of products, you’ll easily understand what makes it one of the most amazing food markets in Europe.
Your guide will be a professional chef, Jaume Brichs, also the instructor for your very special cooking class. Jaume has trained in France, England, Germany and Catalonia, and currently combines his work as pastry chef in a well-known location in Barcelona, with food consulting for prestigious hotels all over Spain.
He will help you prepare a full lunch – everything from the hors d’oeuvres to dessert – based on some of the most famous recipes of regional Catalan cuisine. Relax and chat, have a bite while you’re cooking… the venue* is a private home, a charming penthouse set in lovely surroundings, with a large kitchen and wonderful terrace overlooking the Tibidabo mountain, where you can enjoy what you have cooked if the weather is right. Fine regional wines will accompany the meal.
In sum, treat yourself to more than 5 hours with a professional chef – in a private class, designed just for you - and learn all about the taste of the Mediterranean.
