From the rugged Mediterranean coastline to the Pyrenees Mountains in the north, Catalonia is a diverse region with a cuisine that is as varied as its geography. Catalan cuisine exemplifies the rich and well-balanced Mediterranean diet. Mar i muntanya (sea and mountain) defines Catalan cuisine. Combinations of fish and meat illustrate a unique talent for combining the diverse.
Beside breakfasts and en route lunches, we like to include a few group dinners to sample the different traditional cuisines. It’s time to relax, talk about the rides, deepen friendships and of course, enjoy the food.
From the famous Tapas, typical Paella, traditional Catalan and Spanish cuisine, and modern, nouvelle cuisine led by Ferran Adrià of El Bulli, there is a wide variety of styles.
And of course, these meals are paired with excellent wines. The local wines from D.O. Empordà, still unknown for many, surprise positively for their character. Priorat and Montsant are always well received and many stories can be told from our wine tour.
When we help you customize your tour, you can choose how many dinners are included. The options are endless, from the well-known Michelin awarded restaurants like Celler de Can Roca (3*** and rated as the 2nd best restaurant in the world), La Massana, Les Cols, to the remote countryside restaurants that “only the locals know”. We convert each dinner into a memorable experience.
