DAY 1:
Some of the most revolutionary chefs in Spain are based in Catalonia. This region in North-Eastern Spain is one of the most influential culinary regions not only for traditional cooking but also for Spanish Modern cuisine. Barcelona, culinary capital of Catalonia is therefore, one of the centers of New Spanish cuisine. Being in the vanguard of Spanish art, architecture, interior design, fashion and other artistic expressions, gastronomy could not be an exception.
- It is here where Monica, our kind and young cooking teacher, has lived, studied and developed her cooking career. Monica has worked for some of the most cosmopolitan restaurants in Barcelona such as Julius- owned by the popular TV star Andres Buenafuente, and the Tragaluz restaurant group- which has set the standards of the Barcelona restaurant scene since the eighties, specializing herself in Author cuisine. At present she works for one of the newest four star hotels in city that stands up for its modern architecture and interiors.
- For our cooking classes, Monica has adapted recipes from some of the most influential Catalan chefs of the moment, combining regional and exotic ingredients with the most innovative cooking techniques and personal creativity, resulting in surprising menus of contrasting flavors.
- Featured chefs include internationally acclaimed Ferran Adria: considered by many as the most revolutionary chef in the world, his cooking is based on the combination of texture, temperature and taste with a touch of humor. As superstar French chef Paul Bocuse says, He´s doing the most exciting things in our profession today. Although most chefs are still men, some women have gained national and international recognition for their personal cooking.
- Carmen Ruscalleda, chef of the 2 Michelin-starred ´sant Pau and its sister restaurant in Tokyo, is one of them. Based on her creative interpretation of the Catalan culinary tradition- that has always combined sweet and savory, fish and meat, hot and cold, vegetables and fruits, Carmen has developed recipes that are both complex and balanced. Some of them can be learned in our cooking class.
- This unique cooking class takes place at a special venue: a private home in a quiet quarter North of Barcelona. Nice surroundings for a charm penthouse with a large kitchen and terrace overlooking the Tibidabo Mountain where, with the assistance of Monica, the group will prepare a complete avant-garde menu which doesnt require professional equipment at your kitchen.
- After the two and a half hours hands-on cooking class, enjoy lunch or dinner based on the prepared recipes accompanied by a selected Spanish wine.
- Surprising tastes and the latest cooking techniques from innovative Catalan chefs at your table!
