Mark, Barbra, Anti & Eva – 10 day Barcelona & Girona tour – Sept. – Oct. 2013
“We were privileged to have had a chance to be again under your guidance on a 10-day tour of Barcelona and Catalonia (or Catalan as you say it) after a great tour in La Provence last year.
You have this incredible skill of selecting and presenting experiences to us, which at the end always exceeded our expectations. All these experiences were totally relevant to show the life in Catalan with depth of history, culture, scenery, way of living, the Cava and wines and of course the traditional food: the dishes, the markets, the fish auctions, … The range was astonishing: from little traditional Sunday chocolate treat in old town Barcelona to the wonderful NoNoNo restaurant’s incredible Osso Bucco, from ancient Jewish settlers’ life in Besalú to the magnificent cathedrals in old Girona, from one of Dali’s homes to Picasso museum, from Can Joan’s traditional Catalan rice dish to a fantastic dining experience at El Celler de Can Roca (voted #1 restaurant in the World). And then to top it all, there was your introduction of your friend Chef Vincenç at La Plaça in Madremanya; from his incredible tasting menu to cooking traditional Catalan dishes in his kitchen to welcoming us as his friends – what a privilege!
Finally, your highly personal and familial touch warmed us. Meeting your lovely wife Yuki and sampling her traditional Catalan dishes made us feel part of your family. Thank you from Eva, Antti, Barbra and Mark.”
Lizette and Gerda – South Africa - April 2013 – Barcelona & Girona tour
“It was the perfect holiday. Yvan was the perfect host, knowledgeable and taking us to visit the most interesting places, people and restaurants. The hotel in Madremanya was quaint with the friendliest staff. It was a special treat to share Vincenc’s kitchen. It was totally enjoyable yet relaxing and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to all foodies – a gastronomic feast! “
“We really did have a wonderful holiday and would recommend Spain taste to anyone wanting to visit Barcelona.”
Gourmet Catalonia – Barbara / May 2012
Spaintaste surpassed our wildest expectations. Yvan’s knowledge of the area, gourmet restaurants and Catalan food/wine made the Gourmet Catalonia tour perfect in every way. Yvan knows the local history of the towns and villages in the beautiful Spanish countryside and each day was a sightseeing adventure. Hotel La Placa is beautiful and our accommodations were wonderful. We were immediately made to feel at home. Vicenc, our host, the restaurant chef and cooking teacher, was terrific. Each class was engaging and fun and the food we cooked was delicious. I felt we were leaving good friends by the time the tour was over. It was a trip of a lifetime and I am savoring every memory….
