After shopping for seafood at Barcelona’s biggest market, La Boqueria, brunch at Cova Fumada and cava at the beach, we headed for the Main Event: cooking class at Espai Egg!
Alberto’s and Ella’s Espai egg is an innovative gastronomic space for professional chefs, pop-up dinners, cooking classes and special dining events.
Alberto and Ella are brilliant chefs, and leaders in Barcelona’s organic movement and culinary renaissance.
Both our market tour and cooking class covered the broad strokes, as well as countless insights and details that go into making fantastic Spanish food.
While most of our Gastronomad Experience this week will be all about Barcelona, tonight’s adventure focuses on Parts South — Valencia’s cuisine with paella and sangria, Andalusian cuisine with gazpacho, and then back to Barcelona with a dessert of Crema Catalana.
This event was a professional-level course in cooking all this from scratch, and included detailed insights into the ingredients, equipment, methods, processes and presentation that goes into making this mind-blowingly delicious foods.
Thank you, Alberto and Ella!
