El Celler de Can Roca from within
The worlds of savoury, sweet and wine coexist in perfect harmony in the Celler de Can Roca. Jordi, Josep and Joan work with an exquisite synergy that has led them to place the Celler as one of the best restaurants in the world.
Abigail tells us her experience and lets us discover some of the secrets of the innovative approach of the Roca brothers.
“Surfaces gleam. Brows look furrowed, but not too much. Chalk scribbles across the blackboard and the flames burn dutifully behind black, rectangular ovens. The air fills with the sound of action but the scent of what’s cooking doesn’t suffocate the air.”

Gracia’s Party, fun between papier mache
During the month of August, the Gracia district of Barcelona becomes a real party plenty of streets decorated with papier-mâché, lots of colours and live performances.
Abigail could not visit Barcelona without living the Gracia’s Party and share it on her blog.
“It’s not every day that a quiet walk through hot narrow streets leaves you tumbling into your own Alice in Wonderland world. With giant playing cards falling from the sky, rabbits in hats and towering blue caterpillars looming overhead, it takes the vision of Alice herself to help make the madness make sense.”
