It borders France and Andorra to the north, Aragon to the west, the Valencian Community to the south, and the Mediterranean Sea to the east (580 km coastline). Official languages are Catalan, Spanish, and Aranese.

Our English-speaking team is ready to make your Catalan holiday one that you’ll remember.

Meet Yvan. Yvan will be your guide and driver throughout your journey. He founded Spain Taste with his wife, a wine specialist. Yvan speaks fluent English, French, Spanish and a little Japanese.

Yvan’s personal culinary expertise started with Ferran Adria, considered one of the greatest and most innovative chefs in the world. Yvan credits this master chef’s generosity in sharing his knowledge as the spark that kindled his own love of gastronomy. Yvan moved on to study the history of Catalan cooking and met young talented chefs, who were combining traditional recipes with contemporary flair. His association with these chefs, his growing network of local culinary artisans and his wife’s deep knowledge of wines, inspired the creation of Spain Taste.

Yvan and Yuki have carefully designed tours that will allow you to share their culinary discoveries and adventures. They have painstakingly visited and sampled each restaurant that you will visit, surveying their cellars and assessing their kitchens. The result has been a growing group of travelers from around the world who graciously recommend others to share the enjoyment of Spain Taste. See what we mean!

You can join Yvan in Provence, too. Yvan, a Parisian by birth, lived in Provence before making Spain his home. In addition to his Catalan tours, he also offers several special culinary tours to Provence in association with superb chefs and experts dedicated to maintaining the authentic culinary roots of this magnificent region of southern France.
