We had the most amazing time with Chef Andres! The market tour at Mercat del Ninot was very informative; teaching us how to shop for our ingredients! The class was very interactive and the food was delicious! Definitely going to try the recipes back home!

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
