Culinary tour

Are you a bit of a foodie? Want to discover local techniques and ingredients to incorporate in your own culinary repertoire? Then get the inside information with this tour!

It is only natural that those who do not know the city or master the language find it difficult to discover its culinary treasures. Fear not: we have done all the fieldwork for you, leaving you to enjoy the best that Catalan food has to offer, both traditional and cutting-edge. The tour kicks off with breakfast at Barcelona's oldest traditional milk bar, with its scrummy dairy products, and also visits La Boquería, the city's leading and most colourful food market, where ingredients and recipes are explained and there is a chance to taste some of the produce on display.

Another stop involves a tasting of artisanal cheeses at a unique establishment: we also peek into other establishments, such as impressive delicatessens, traditional bakeries, etc. We will also drop into a local tapas bar for a snack and a glass of something fortifying.

Optional after the tour:  For those who want something truly authentic: we can drop you off at Angel's where, surrounded by an eclectic mix of antiques and junk, you will be fed and entertained by the eccentric host. Or, for those of a more delicate disposition, we can leave you at a more “classy” establishment.
