It was in the mid-80s when Colman Andrews crossed the border from France on a culinary journey that put Catalan cuisine on the map with a book (Catalan Cuisine: Europe’s Last Great Culinary Secret) that never gets old. Three decades later, we have turned those pages into an exciting culinary trip to explore Catalan food culture, travelling through our country, visiting our favourite food producers, sitting at the best restaurants, meeting legendary chefs, discovering our culinary traditions and revisiting, at last, what is left and what has changed in the past 30-plus years.
Join us and follow the steps of this respected American food writer, known as an expert on Catalonia’s cuisine, to savour the region as never before. While Colman’s book “Catalan Cuisine” still sells and still garners good reviews, it is outdated. Many of the chefs and other personalities it features have passed on, and many new and exciting things have happened since it first appeared — most dramatically, the culinary revolution fomented by the modernist master Ferran Adrià at his legendary elBulli -now closed as a restaurant, but being reborn as an institute for creativity, culinary and otherwise-. So now it is time to come back.
