A journey through Spain’s Rich Culture and Sublime Cuisine
I wanted to start my first post by wishing you all a Very Happy New Year. 2015 is a great year to awaken your taste buds in the land of El Bulli and Cervantes for the ultimate culinary experience and cultural adventure.
According to Restaurant Magazine’s poll of international chefs, restaurateurs, gourmands and restaurant critics, three out of the best eight restaurants in the world are located on Spanish soil.
On their 2014 edition, the second place has been bestowed to El Celler de Can Roca, a Catalan family restaurant offering Modern Spanish cuisine; the sixth place has been granted to Mugaritz with its techno-emotional Spanish cuisine; and the eighth place has been awarded to Arzak, a family-run San Sebastián restaurant skilled in cutting-edge Basque cuisine. Curated as a culinary experience like no other, this exceptional journey will take you to all three.
Stay on the grounds of La Alhambra in picturesque Granada; visit the Guggenheim and Chillida Museums in the Basque Country; and tour Gaudi’s works in Barcelona. Complete the experience by relishing in a rare caviar tasting at Europe’s first organic caviar producing sturgeon farm in Granada to touring a local market in San Sebastián ushered by a renowned chef who will then organize a cooking party.
