9:30am Start of the Gastronomic Day Trip from Barcelona

We’ll meet near the metro stop Arc de Triomf (L1- red line) and from there go together, in an air-conditioned minivan to the first place. The exact address of meeting point will be released upon booking.
2

10:45am Meeting with local farmers

Get ready to meet with friendly Catalan farmers and discover a sustainable project just a few kilometers away from Barcelona. The farmers will explain about how they’ve converted several hundreds of hectares to organic farming, protected them from overurbanization and of course you’ll learn about seasonal products.

This project is an association of farmers and makers producing hand in hand different kind of vegetables, legumes, ancient grains, flours, pasta, beer and more- all organic of course! After receiving an explanation, you’ll be able to pick some seasonal vegetables directly in the fields with the help of the farmers. You’ll be saving them to cook them later on.

12:30pm Cooking at the farmhouse

Time to go to a somptous ancient farmhouse, home to another project of organic farming (free range organic egg production). There, you’ll meet with a professionally trained chef and together prepare an authentic Catalan meal with the vegetables you’ve picked a bit earlier. The chef will bring some food as well, all locally sourced from small producers, and most of it organic as well.

You’ll be participating in the preparation of a full meal: starter (using your harvest of the day), main dish (usually meat cooked on woodfire) and dessert (using the organic eggs from the farmhouse). Any food intolerance or preference can be requested when booking so as to adapt the menu to your needs.

4

2:30pm Traditional lunch

Together with the chef, you’ll set the table- on sunny days, we’ll eat outside, on rainy days, the chef has the keys of a secret chapel where you can feast occasionally. Along with the meal, you’ll get to drink local wine the traditional Catalan way, using a porrón. This will be a real feast for those who like authentic and quality food shared with good friends!
5

4:15pm Time to return to Barcelona

After a good meal and maybe a small rest, it’ll be time to come back to Barcelona with your guide.

5pm End of the Gastronomic Day Trip from Barcelona

Amazing Farm to Table Experience!
What an adventure! The Farm to Table Cooking Day Trip from Barcelona was truly a little bit of everything; farming, cooking, drinking and meeting so many wonderful people. This was truly the highlight of my trip! You will not regret it!

I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since my Barcelona farm to table experience. I’m back home now and my day with Barcelona Slow Travel stands out as the the absolute highlight of my trip. After the farm to table experience I now feel an even deeper sense of connection to the place, the culture, the land, and of course – the food & wine!

I sent the Barcelona Slow Travel link to my friends and family to show them how much I enjoyed the experience and many have commented that they could see how much I was enjoying myself. Of course, they all want to try the porron, which is no problem because I bought one as my special souvenir and I now have it at home waiting for friends to practice with!

Many thanks to Guillaume, Marta, and the farm to table hosts, farmers & of course, Chef Pepe for creating & sharing such a rich experience!

Muchas gracias!
