It’s unique location on top of the Tibidabo hill, with stunning and panoramic views over Barcelona and the Mediterranean sea makes this venue a dream come true. During this unique two-day event the chefs collaborated with Executive Chef Ivan Tarrago.
On Saturday April 29th the Indonesian event started in the sold out Barcelonas restaurant, which is located inside the Gran Hotel La Florida. In collaboration with Executive Chef Ivan Tarrago the chefs prepared a stunning 8-course IndoCatalan tasting menu including dishes such as: Grilled Foie with ‘trinxat’ of chinese cabbage, black sausage, roasted apple, moscatel wine jelly and ‘Piquant’ sauce (Chef Ivan) and a sensational Rawon with cheek, salted baby squid, snow peas sprout and melinjo crackers (Chef Maxie and Chef Renatta). The tasting menu was complemented with an exquisite wine pairing presented by their top sommelier who gave each dish a new experience.
During the evening the chefs had the honour to meet some important Spanish guests including Miguel Balcells Camps, Commercial Director Horeca Independiente at Guzman Gastronomia and the Counselor of Culture and Social Affairs: Mr. Kurniawan.
The Gran Hotel La Florida is also known for its exceptional and vibrant Sunday brunches with guests from all over Barcelona.
