Last night we had the best meal since we arrived, and, even better, we prepared it from start to finish.  We did have help though, from chef Maria at a place called Cook and Taste.

There were seven of us, and we all prepared and cooked a menu including:

  • romesco sauce
  • spinach Catalan style with flatbread and confit cod
  • chicken paella
  • Catalan custard
  • tomato bread
  • tastings of Serrano and Iberian ham

Queens of custard.

Maria wisely kept complete control of the torch as she caramelized the top of the custard.

We all worked hard, and with Maria’s expert (and very personable) supervision, dinner was truly delicious!

Thanks to our daughter, Rebecca, for organizing this outing.

I think we’ll all remember this evening as one of the best parts of our stay in Barcelona.
