Culinary Tour in El Priorat, Spain ~ Catalan Cuisine prepared in classes
Catalan cuisine
is in a category of its own within the realms of other Mediterranean foods. Dishes such as escalivada, esqueixada, or Bacalla a la llauna, simple things such as pa amb tomaquet, and famous desserts like crema catalana are but some of the specialties you will learn how to make during your gastronomical holiday.

Apart from its fabulous Priorat wines, this area also produces a delicious olive oil made from arbequina olives. This oil is produced right here in El Masroig, and its acidity is no more than 0.3 degrees, a true sign of quality.

Alicia and Jonathan will welcome you as if you were part of the family. From the moment you arrive at the Barcelona airport, where we will pick you up, you will not have to worry about anything but enjoying a relaxing vacation. Each day you will learn how to cook a new Catalan dish. Daily excursions will enable you to discover most of the Priorat and visit its vineyards, wine producers, and olive oil presses.

This program will enable you to learn the basics of Catalan cuisine as you will have a total of six classes of approximately three hours duration each. The fourteen meals you will be having during this time, five of which are in restaurants, will allow you to sample a wide variety of different Catalan dishes. The Priorat wines will no longer be a secret to you after the wine tasting session at a private cooking school/accommodation, and the many trips to vineyards and a wine museum. You will not only love the olive Culinary Tour in El Priorat, Spain ~ Hands-on Cooking Classoil that you will be using on a daily basis, but you will also get a chance to see how it is made.

The daily excursions will unveil most of the Priorat and its history so that when the time comes to leave, you will truly feel you have discovered the essence of this beautiful region. This is also your vacation and so we want you to have time to relax as well, and if you have any requests for a change in the planned schedule, we will surely try and accommodate your needs.
