Down in the depths of Barrio Gotic, not too far from Ramblas, hidden behind the graffiti door, is where one can learn the art of making sushi, tempura and other Japanese delicacies… from a Catalan with a passion. Jordi hosts cooking nights where he cooks and teaches and we watch- and cook (optional)- and eat (some of the best sushi I have ever eaten!). Fun and delicious… what more can one ask for from a class!
La Mercé, the annual festival dating back from 1871 celebrates Barcelona culture, old and new. The city streets and seas are filled with traditional festivities and modern tastes.
Barcelona is a buzz!!!
Follow the yellow brick road to OZ?!! (If only it was that easy!) When the yellow jacaranda trees drop their flowers for summer.

…Tanta, the Peruvian restaurant that the Peruvians go to… it must be good! I have never been to Peru and only have my Peruvian friends to guide me and this is where they come (when they are not actually cooking food Peru). It is a little ‘mini-break’ from tapas and a culinary journey to another continent. Delicious!

… tucked in on the market square in Barceloneta, is this vintage vermut bar, open 09h-15.30h (& 19h-22h). On a Saturday or Sunday it is filled with the locals who come to have their morning vermut (of which there is a selection) and soda, accompanied by tapas… mejillones (muscles), or bacalao or jamón or bombas (potato filled with meat then fried). A delicious way to start Spanish Sunday (after the gym, of course!)
