In July 2016 I met the Lonely Planet‘s social communication team, and my upcoming trip to Costa Brava became the perfect chance to work together and create these promo videos for their new recipe book “Spain from the Source”.

So I travelled across Costa Brava, Catalunya (Northern Spain) to meet local chefs to show me some of the recipes you can find in the book.

The people we featured in these videos are some of the most famous chefs in Northerns Spain:
FINA PUIGDEVALL from Olot | Xató con Panecillo (salt cod salad with buckwheat bread)
JOAN CARLES SÁNCHEZ from Pals | Arròs a banda (fish-infused rice)
LUCÍA LÓPEZ from Hostaric | Panellets de pinyon (marzipan balls with pine nuts)
ORIOL BLANES from Palamós | Suquet (fish and potato stew)The people from Can Xifra, Girona prepared for us Escalivada (chargrilled vegetables salad)

Hope you enjoy the results, and … buen provecho!
