About the tour

Join me on this exploration of Catalan cuisine and culture. I will prepare two classic recipes while talking about our Cuban connection. Crema catalana (Catalan cream) or crema cremada (burnt cream) is the most emblematic desserts in Catalonia and found on the menu of almost every restaurant in the region and in many other parts of Spain. It’s basically a custard cream aromatised with cinnamon and lemon zest, and served with a burnt sugar crust. It’s a personal favourite of mine, and a recipe inviting to a bit of improvisation. What do you need for a classic Crema Catalan? • 1litre full milk • 6 egg yolk (the more yellow/orange yolk the better) • 175 g caster sugar • 25g maize flour, like Maizena • 1 lemon, preferably organic • Zest of half a lemon • Additional sugar to caramelize Rom cremat is a cocktail closely related to historic seatrade between Catalonia and the West Indies, particularly Cuba, in the 19th century. It’s part of a popular tradition during our village feasts, Festa Major, together with the singing of havaneras. What do you need for a traditional Rom Cremat? • 1 bottle (around 75cl) of dark rum • 50 g sugar • 1 cinnamon stick • Zest of half a lemon • 12 coffee beans or a shot of strong coffee • Sugar to taste Welcome!
