This is the last weekend of research for the new cava book. So far so good. We have stayed at Hotel Pulitzer and now at Hotel Omm. All great stays that we will write about separately so that you will get a sneak preview and don’t have to wait for the book to find out what we like about them.
We have of course already been to visit our favourite place El Quim, to have lunch and to give Quim a copy of the Swedish book and also tell him about our new plans. Quim has himself been very busy indeed lately and written a book about his amazing restaurant in the Boqueria, and he has also opened a new restaurant in Hong Kong!
One thing we love about having lunch at El Quim is that you always meet so many nice people and this time we met two guys from Paris, who were visiting Barcelona for the first time. They had no idea what cava was, so we told them a little bit and Quim treated them to a glass of Juvé y Camps cinta purpura each, which they both liked very much.
