With Chef Laura Casasayas-Pala
Summer nights in Barcelona are known for casual dinners, good conversation and flowing wine.
Mediterranean cuisine, and ingredients found in the Mediterranean Diet, are based on a wide variety of foods found in a number of countries in this area: France, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Portugal along the north; Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel on the east; and the African countries of Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia on the south. Barcelona is one of the culinary power houses of Mediterranean cuisine.
The combination of these food items and the many ways they’re prepared specific to the region they come from, is at the heart of what makes Mediterranean cuisine so very unique and flavorful. An added bonus is that many Mediterranean cuisine not only tastes good- it is good for you!
Join us for a culinary night to the Mediterranean to explore a variety of delicious dishes coming from the cosmopolitan and foodie city of Barcelona.
This meal will be paired with two wines relative to this area.
