Gastronomy and art come together at La Pedrera

The cycle kicks off with a concert and show cooking with Jaume Biarnés of Fundació Alícia and music expert Xavier Chavarría.

A number of new cultural initiatives are on our way this spring, including this one, by Fundació Catalunya - La Pedrera, which is sure to delight people who love both food and art. Gaudí’s iconic building in Passeig de Gràcia is set to host a cycle titled Cultura i alimentació that aims to showcase the relationship between gastronomy and diverse artistic manifestations.

The cycle will kick off on at 7pm Wednesday 5 April with a show cooking session called Cuina lírica that will work as a dialogue between disciplines, showcasing chefs with restless imaginations who have sought inspiration in art. Led by the chef of Fundació Alícia Jaume Biarnés and music expert Xavier Chavarria, the session will review the top moments in the history of classical cuisine and of opera, as well as presenting opera-inspired dishes such as Tosca salad and Rossini cannelloni, which will be placed in their musical contexts. Attendees can taste these dishes while enjoying music by soprano Beatriz Jiménez, tenor Albert Deprius and pianist Ricardo Estrada.

Two weeks later, on 19 April, it will be time for Alimenta els sentits! Un viatge poètic pel pa, l'oli i el vi, which aims to use tastings and readings to embark on a sensorial journey through the Mediterranean diet based on three of its essential components: bread, olive oil and wine. The actor Pep Planas will guide you through the landscapes, history and cultural context of these ingredients.

The last activity in the cycle will take place at Món Sant Benet in the Bages region on 29 and 30 April. This two-day festival will feature smaller scale versions of the sessions programmed in the cycle.
