Cook with a Catalan!
After meeting in the town square Plaça Espanya at an afternoon or evening time that is convenient for you, we will take a short walk to our flat, where we invite you to experience a view of daily life in our small typical Tossa home.
First we'll start with one of Catalunya's oldest traditions - a taste and explanation of vermut. This enriched sweet wine is one of our most beloved traditions, as both an afternoon social event and a pre-meal aperitif.
Next, we will make our way to the kitchen, where we have already prepared a list of the freshest ingredients to make a REAL, typical style seafood and meat "Mixta" Paella. Everyone will have a hand in preparing the meal, as we explain how to prep, cut, properly cook the rice, and the traditional technique and secrets to making a typical people's paella. We'll even provide you with an ingredients list to take home, so you can impress your friends with an amazing traditional meal that you learned on holiday in Tossa!
Finally, when the paella is ready, we will sit together and enjoy the delicious meal you prepared, paired with a local Tossa wine from right here in the village. While we eat, we can talk about Tossa and life on the Mediterranean coast, the history, culture and traditions of the Costa Brava....and maybe even give you some suggestions of some new things to see and learn a little Catalan language!
