‘An Edible History of Barcelona’
Gourmet Historical Walking Tour
The goal of my tours — developed since 2013 — is to help people understand the intriguing history of Barcelona through one of the city’s greatest assets: its food! This is not a “tapas crawl” or a scripted tour with a set menu. The best way I have found to describe the tour is as a ‘guided dining experience’. Coming from the USA and finding a niche as a recognized food writer, food photographer, travel blogger/Instagrammer, and gastronomic tour guide has given me a unique perspective on life and culture in Barcelona, and I love to share the side of the city I love!
We will eat in four distinct styles of bars and restaurants and move at the pace that feels right for you and savor a wide variety of dishes while seated at 4 authentic restaurants. At each restaurant, we will be tasting tapas, local specialties, some of my favorite foods from other regions of Spain as well.
Between stops, we will walk the streets of Barcelona’s three oldest neighborhoods — Raval, Gòtic, and Born — and see first-hand the amazing 2,000+ years of history that have left their mark on everything from the city’s architecture and name to the very wine we drink. I’m from Boston, USA, but Barcelona is my home like nowhere I have lived since I was a child. I have dedicated myself to learning as much about this amazing place as possible. Come see and taste my Barcelona!
