El Bulli was Ferran Adrià’s 3 Michelin star restaurant in northern Catalonia. It was described as “the most imaginative generator of haute cuisine on the planet”. It closed in 2011 but that was not the beginning of a downturn in Catalonian cuisine but the opposite; from the mountains to the coast our beloved region has become one of the best food destinations in the world.
You can sample the food of the El Bulli team, currently available at Disfrutar in central Barcelona, or the Roca brothers at Cellar de Can Roca in Girona. For something a little different we will use our expert knowledge of the best places for any speciality, we know the most intimate and secret restaurants and we would love to show you where they are. And for more distant dining locations, we’ll get you there in a private plane or any mode of transport that you like!
If there is an art that the Catalans have known how to preserve, maintain and reinvent, it is that of the cuisine. Catalonia, in special Barcelona, deserve to go one step up every day in the competitive Spanish gastronomic world. Between the sea and the mountains, between its heritage and its innovation, Catalan cuisine is rich and diverse and each region offers its specialties. Traditional and family, creative or invented, their recipes do not leave anyone indifferent. Their wines also accompany and perhaps are not up to the great of all, but they deserve special attention those of the Priory and the Montsant.
