DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for the most authentic food experience in Barcelona? Are you into cooking, and farm to table life? Then you will love our Farm To Table Cooking Experience. Together with Guillermo, the founder of Barcelona Slow Travel, an expert of local producers, slow food, and an accomplished chef, you’ll take a unique journey into the Catalan countryside life.

First, you’ll visit a preserved natural area, known as “Barcelona’s green lung”, located just a few kilometers north of the city. This area of over 700 hectares is divided into organic farming lands, forests, hiking trails, and a few old houses occupied by local families. There, you’ll meet with friendly local farmers. They’ll tell you about local vegetables, wild herbs, and organic agriculture. Under your hosts’ guidance, you’ll visit their lands and pick your own fresh, seasonal veggies to be cooked later on.

The second place you’ll go to is a 400-year-old farmhouse, owned by a local family of farmers. They have been one of the pioneers of the organic egg production in Spain, starting in the early 90’s. Together with them, we’ll be able to pick some extra fruits and eggs in their garden that we will use for dessert. Around lunchtime, we’ll start our cooking experience- a unique cooking session where you will prepare a 3-course traditional Catalan meal, using 100% organic and farm to table ingredients.

Finally, it will be time to enjoy the fantastic meal you’ve been creating. You’ll be eating either on the terrace of the garden or in a secret chapel owned by the family, depending on the weather. Of course, we’ll offer you our best selection of local, organic wines for a magical pairing with the food and to complete your experience.

Please note that this is a totally unique cooking and eating experience, getting you up close with the Catalan local life. This is fully hands on. You’ll get to participate in each step of the process. From picking veggies to making fire, cooking and eating with new friends 🙂

You’ll probably get your hands dirty, your shoes dirty and have one of the best time of your holidays in Spain. You’ll not only support the local life, you’ll also see where the food comes from and how it’s been grown organically. This is a real cultural and human experience, and we highly recommend it to families with children, groups of friends and couples that want a truly unique food experience in Barcelona.

Amazing Farm to Table Experience!
What an adventure! The Farm to Table Cooking Experience 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 cooking 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!
