In this tour we will learn about Iberian ham, cheese, tapas, wines, world-renowned Spanish cooks.
Catalan cuisine is more than 2000 years old. There are restaurants that already existed in the eighteenth century, and locals go to centennial stores that appear in famous international magazines.
Let’s find out more!
At La Boqueria food market, proclaimed “The best market in the world!” during the World Market Congress in Washington – 2005, we will find the basic ingredients of our cuisine: meat offal, fish, Spanish saffron. . .
Outside of the market we will visit stores that have become famous for their specialisation: the ones that sell only oil, or convent sweets, wines from the Penedés or La Rioja, coffee, chocolate stores, or famous roasting factories with more than 160 years of history.
While we discover these places, we will also be able to taste some of their products: cheese, Spanish ham, nougat candy. . . and to eat in a restaurant of tapas and pintxos for their delicacy and this peculiar way of eating.
