Looking for a special plan to spend New Year’s Eve in Barcelona? Join Guillermo and Cristina, the couple behind Barcelona Slow Travel, for a unique New Year’s Eve experience filled with good food, great wines, laughter, and local traditions.
The evening will start with a tasting of local appetizers (cheese tasting, cured meats, olive oil, fleur de sel and much more) paired with organic cava from our favorite small producer located right outside Barcelona. Then, we’ll start a fully hands-on cooking class, where you’ll prepare 5 premium tapas dishes as well as a unique “end of year” dessert. Using traditional family recipes and local, seasonal and organic ingredients, you’ll discover the real Barcelona cuisine, as well as a range of cooking tips.
The cooking time will be of approximately 2,5 hours, and then another hour will be dedicated for dinner. Just like a Barcelona family, we’ll sit at the table and eat together while exchanging stories and laughter. Handpicked, local organic wines of the finest quality will be offered as food pairing to celebrate your creations.
Finally, we’ll get ready to enter into 2019 together. Just like the Spanish tradition wants it, we’ll eat our 12 traditional grapes at midnight as the bell chimes (one for each of the 12 chimes) which will bring us a lucky and prosperous new year!
Eating grapes is followed by exchanging kisses (on the cheek, please!) and cheering with the finest cava (Catalan sparkling wine). There will be plenty of surprises during the evening, and we do not really know when it will end, as we’ll invite you to go for drinks with us after midnight.
This event is unique in town, it’s a lot of fun and we are really looking forward to meeting you there. As you can imagine, the spots are limited and we highly recommend to book well in advance!
