About the tour

Pepus is passionate about food and loves cooking and eating. Join him as he takes us to discover the food variety, display and amazing colors of the Boqueria Food Market… often called the Best Food Market in the World! We will learn what is meant by a “Mediterranean diet” and what exactly “tapas” are. See Olive oil, Jamón, chorizo, manchego cheese, razor-clams, olives, anchovies, Spanish omelet, exotic fruit, saffron, spices and nuts… Pepus will show us where he buys his food and in what dining places of the market, the vendors would snack or eat their lunch. Join Pepus on this extraordinary gourmet foodie experience that you will not forget! Disclaimer: Spain is not a vegetarian country; therefore, this trip may not be suitable if you are vegetarian/vegan or feel sensitive about butchers, poultry, entrails, offal, etc.
