Gerry Dawes – Mr Spain! – famous Spanish gastronomy and wine expert. January 2014
“If you are going to Barcelona, Girona, Catalunya in general or to Provence, I highly recommend Yvan of Spain Taste. I had to privilege of having him as my guide and friend in Girona, where I at last visited the wonderful old Jewish quarter of the city, had a bottle of cava with Pitu Roca of el Celler de Can Roca (three-star Michelin restaurant in Girona and a long-time acquaintance) and then went to a remarkable Catalan restaurant, Iberic, for lunch about a half hour from Girona in the village of Ullastret.”
Come with us for unique cooking holidays in Spain!
Our cooking holidays in Spain promise to delight you with luxury accomodation, top chefs, great food, fabulous guides, delicious wine and great company all based in the beautiful location of Catalonia, Spain. If you love food and you want to experience the real cuisine of the Spanish then you should join our cooking holidays in Spain.
This is all combined with excellent guides who will show you around beautiful places such as Barcelona, Girona and the Costa Brava through understanding an area you understand the history of the food.
You can visit the Dali Museum, a must for everyone here in Spain, and then you can find yourself on the coast over looking the Mediterranean sea, at the famous Costa Brava. The preserved villages of Spain are quite beautiful and it is incredibly easy to forget what year you are actually in.
Spain Taste organizes cookery tours to various areas, the focus obviously on food, but also to demonstrate the wonders of true Spain which are a long, long way from some of the areas on the Costas. The true taste of Spain is often found in the tucked away bar in the pueblos your first clue is usually the aroma wafting through the streets, followed by the sound of “chatter” of local people that grows louder the closer you get.
Yvan started Spain Taste a few years ago, in 2005, with his wife who is a wine specialist and Yvan will be your guide and driver for the duration of your stay. His passion for Spanish food, in particular the older recipes, is what inspired him to start this business and share his findings with you.
