Guillermo & Christina from Barcelona:
"For this very special gastronomic experience, we'll first take you to our local market for a 1-hour tour where we will buy the groceries to prepare the menu of your choice! Of course, we'll also give you some tips and explain our local products to you.
Then we'll take you back to our cooking space, which is just opposite the market, where we'll start by offering you an artisanal cheese tasting, as well as a tasting of award-winning Catalan olive oils, gourmet sea salts and organic herbs. We will also teach you a typical Catalan appetizer, “Pa amb Tomàquet” (bread and tomato). During the tasting, we'll start serving our best Catalan wines which will accompany you during the whole experience.
After the tasting, we'll begin a fully hands-on cooking experience where you will prepare the following:
-Seasonal Tapa of the day
- Paella of your choice (to choose between seafood Paella, chicken & rabbit Paella, wild mushrooms Paella- 100% up to you!)
-Seasonal fruit sorbet of your choice
After preparing everything, we will eat together.
Although we focus on providing a serious and informative cooking experience, the atmosphere will be relaxed and friendly: we are all here to have fun after all!
Most of the recipes come from our families and will make you an authentic master of Catalan and Spanish food.
Last, but not least, we are concerned about the environment and aware of our carbon footprint. During the experience, you will notice a multitude of small details that are done in an alternative manner: we reduce our use of plastic, most of the products are locally produced, most of the cooking utensils are eco-friendly and made in Spain, and many things of our decoration are handmade or recycled. We also aim to provide "uncontaminated" food and surroundings for our guests: thus we only use natural cleaning products. Come and see for yourself: we'll be delighted to share all of our secrets with you!
The menu is fully customizable, so it can easily be adapted with a previous request to be vegetarian/vegan/gluten free or anything else. The menu is already lactose-free."
