Barcelona Chocolate Walk

Submitted by on December 12, 2011 – 12:56 amNo Comment

Headed to Barcelona, Road Trips Foodies? Context has a new tour — City of Chocolate — that looks at the integral role this Spanish city has played in the history of chocolate.

Beginning at the port, the walk travels back to the 15th century with the arrival of the first chocolate beans to Europe from the New World aboard Columbus’s fleet. The walk explores how the cacao bean made its way into everyday life, by taking visitors into some of Barcelona’s more traditional cafes and granjas, where they will experience the traditional merinda.

Moving on to some of the city’s latest chocolate-makers, participants will also experience some of the bold flavors of new chocolate mixes and current trends in bean-to-bar single-source chocolate makers like Cacao Sampaka. The discussion, led by food journalists and historians will involve aspects of cuisine, from technical production to cultural significance to final product, as well as tastings.

Context is a network of English-speaking scholars and professionals who organize and lead walking seminars in 15 world cities: Florence, Rome, Venice, Naples, Paris, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington D.C., Istanbul and Athens.
