Cooking And Eating In Barcelona

We found the food in Barcelona to be high-quality, affordable, and generally vegetarian friendly. We were staying only three minutes away from a local market, and there were lots of excellent bakeries and shops on the walk home from Theo’s school. Good wine can be obtained for only a few euros per bottle in Spain. Most restaurants had affordable fixed price lunches.

In short, we ate very well all month, at home and in restaurants.


I also took two cooking classes while in Barcelona and recommend them both!

Barcelona Cooking had lots of great cooking tips and information about Spanish cuisine. I especially loved the market tour, though I probably won’t be making personal use of how to select the best fresh tuna or barnacles.

Barcelona Slow Travel is run by a couple who are clearly very passionate about food. I learned a bunch about the local and slow food movements during their tapas class.
