Back in 2002, before taking the reins of the family restaurant business we headed to the Catalan capital for a last minute break- it was summer and the weather was unusually miserable so we took refuge in the many bars, eateries & food markets of the old town.
We came back loving the Catalonian way of life and their relationship with food. We loved the way they prepared dishes with minimal fuss to let the quality & freshness take centre stage.
The Gaudi architecture, moody backstreet bars and live music all added to what is an incredible city and after a couple of cerveszas dreamed of taking this way of life back home. So eventually here it is… baresca is our slice of Barcelona.
