A Culinary Excursion to Catalunya From West Hartford
Sometimes a meal is just a meal, and sometimes it’s an educational experience that will elevate the palate with new flavors specific to regional cuisine. The latter was the case at Barcelona’s recent Catalunya dinner – part of a series of evenings designed by Executive Chef, Alex Feldman, to highlight the diverse culinary offerings of Spain. Nestled in the northeast corner of the country, the Catalan region of Spain boasts its own distinct language and food style: which is heavily influenced by the coastal area’s spectacular seafood, as well as the lush country side of the area. For $35 (with an additional cost for a wine flight tailored to the flavors of the meal), we were treated to a perfectly balanced, four course meal which celebrated the traditions of Catalunya through the flavors of its food.
