The Future Wave of Travel
Barcelona, with its ideal Mediterranean climate has at its disposition a wealth of local products, wines, olive oil, fresh seafood, local fruits and vegetables that offer a range of flavours and experiences that will excite any foodie traveling to Barcelona.
One of the key factors of the local food movement in Barcelona is promoting the use of KM0 products, produced within 100 kilometers of Barcelona, in this way encouraging local economies, and avoiding the use of intermediaries, thus allowing the consumer to pay a fair price and benefitting the producer as well. Eating KM0 is an ecologically friendly alternative, cutting back on food kilometers and thus reducing ones carbon footprint. Barcelona is full of KM0 restaurants, products and initiatives to promote what is local.
As the fourth most popular city in Europe for tourism, Barcelona is therefore constantly coming up with new travel initiatives and proposals of what to do in the city, with a particular emphasis on local experiences. With the new wave of travel focusing on the experience, one of the key factors is the interaction with locals. New innovative proposals have sprung up across the globe and in Barcelona to promote such interactions, including EatWith, where locals offer a home-cooked meal in their home or Trip4Real where real people promote local experiences in their city.
Foodies coming to Barcelona will enjoy a wealth of proposals that will delight the sensations and the taste buds. Using food as the common denominator to experience local culture, Food Wine Tours offers a home cooking with a private chef in small groups, designed specifically by local experts for culinary adventurers in Barcelona. With a local chef, you will have the opportunity to learn about Spanish cuisine in the chef´s home. The menu is adapted seasonally according to KM0 products and will include one of many Spanish traditional dishes such as gazpacho, potato omelette, tomato bread, shellfish paella, Catalan cream, all of which is paired with local wine.
