Every day started with an enormous and delicious breakfast: many pastries, cheeses, yoghurts, egg tortilla, but also ham, chorizo, salami, salmon, sardines, a lot of fruits, different types of bread, water, juices, even wine!!!!, hot chocolate, many different types of coffees, teas, etc…
And in addition to the sumptuous breakfast, you have the incredible view on the ocean.
We also had gourmet dinners. I will let Sandy Delehanty, our teacher on the watercolor workshop, tell you about it:
“Our French Escapade led Watercolor Journaling trip to Spain, continues with gourmet food that Jackie our French Escapade guide has included in this trip and we are all LOVING!
Judy said one night that she thought Jackie should have advertised this trip as a “Painting/Gourmet Food Trip” since every one of our dinners together have been fabulous and we have learned so much about the Catalan way of cooking. I think she is right!
Here is a market photo that gives you an idea of the freshness of the ingredients that the chefs use to do their magic.
One of our dinners was at Can Joan in a nearby town that some locals recommended to Jackie when she was planning her first tour of this area. The specialty was a unique version of Paella made with the rice negro grown here and a very soupy style sauce and of course loads of fresh seafood and sausage etc.
Really great, as were all the many tapas.
June not only loves the food and the company she also loves the Sangria, but do not worry, not all of the glasses in this photo are hers, she is too much a lady to go overboard.
The next morning at breakfast June confessed that she did not have quite as much “spring in her step”! The dessert was a real treat as well.
And since we are by the coast, the fish is caught that day. At many restaurants we went to, we were presented with the fishes of the day so you can choose which fish you want. I am not a fan of mussels but everyone else in our group has been raving them. At home I do not like sardines, but fresh caught here they are terrific.
