What you'll do
The Foodie stroll is a gastronomic experience that takes you through Barcelona’s most emblematic food, starting in the XVIII Century and all the way to the present. We start the stroll at La Boqueria, the most symbolic market in the city. At the market we savor local products like the best Iberian ham in the world, cured meats, olives or chocolates, and some hard-to-find products such as swan eggs or eatable flowers. We visit the first chocolate shop in Spain, we do an olive oil tasting and taste a variety of samples immediately cooked, along with a local wine. In the Gothic Quarter, we stop at patisseries, cafes, and specialized cheese and wine stores, tasting their most emblematic products. What these experiences have told me is that tasting the city's gastronomy is one of the best, and most fun ways to understand the place, and to get immersed into its culture. But doing it in the region where the best chefs in the world work and find inspiration is just a unique privilege.
I am a journalist and I have a weekly column in a Catalan newspaper, where I talk about lifestyle and gastronomy. My job is to know the trendiest spots in the city as well as the hidden, impossible-to-find places. And I will take you to both. I’ve been in the wine and food business for 10 years. Which means that yes, it is a great life. Let me share it with you.
