This week I got invited to a Tastemotion event held by Costa Brava Tourism.
First when we arrived we got something bubbly to drink while they held a short presentation on what you can do in Costa Brava and the thing I liked most was the information that they have 16 restaurants that have Michelin stars and a total of 20 Michelin stars in Costa Brava.
The food experience we were treated to was for all our senses that started off with some captivating story telling while we got treated to a visual play on the table we where sitting at.
Quim Casellas and his team was the behind the great menu we got to try during the event. He is chef at the Casamar restaurant that has one Michelin star and with the food we got during the event I can understand why.
As the whole food experience was like a show the lunch was in 5 different acts, and here is what we got served:
Anchovy from L’Escala in three textures, Traditional Manyac cheese from La Xiquella with a sphere of DOP Empordá virgin olive oil, bread and tomato. To that we got to drink Finca Olivardots Groc d´Ámfora 2017 – Vinyes dÓlivardots- DO Empordá
