What you'll do
This is a gastronomic tour lasting approximately 4 hours between the neighborhoods of Gracia, San Antoni and Ciutat Vella. We will make 5 tasting stops. We will start in Gracia, this bohemian and very authentic area far from the crowds, to visit two exclusive shops and try First Pressed Extra Olive oil and Sparkling wine of the Premium denomination Coprinnat. Then we will take a taxi to go to Sant Antoni neighborhood, a trendy shopping district known by its shops and restaurants, to try melted chocolate and pastries of one of the most popular pastry chefs. We will visit the big Food Market and we will stop at my favourite Charcuterie shop for Spanish cured Ham and Wine. After, we will walk through the Raval neighborhood, one of the most historic in the city where the medieval wall was located to finish our tour to taste delicious Tapas and Wine in an exclusive Restaurant of the area.
My name is Andreu, and I was born and raised in Barcelona. I left my job as a lawyer to follow my passion and become a chef. I went to Culinary School in the city and I worked for 6 years in several restaurants, some of them Michelin Star awarded. I am also a wine lover, and I have completed several wine tasting training courses and have been in the wine country many times for tasting and get to know different local wineries. I would love to share this passion for Catalan Gastronomy on this tour. You will taste some of the most selected ingredients and also you will learn about the culture, far away from the crowds and the more touristy areas. I will give you guidance for shopping the best ingredients and the best wines that offers the city.
I adapt the tour for clients with allergies or with vegetarian or gluten free diets (not vegans yet, sorry).
