Time Out Barcelona in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food, Estrella Damm and other entities invite you to the first edition Time to Eat on November 30 at the Maritime Museum in Barcelona. Catalan products are the star of the day, and they make up all the ingredients that make up all the dishes at this gastronomic festival.
And who will be cooking up the recipes using said Catalan products? Sixteen top chefs in Barcelona wouldn't miss the party, and they're participating with sample dishes that are representative of their signature cuisine. The star line-up (in many cases boasting actual Michelin stars) includes, among others, Fran López from Xerta; Jordi Vilà from Pizzería Mucho; Marc Martin and Alain Guiard from La Mundana; Stefano Mazza from Last Monkey; Eugeni de Diego from A Pluma; and Max and Stefano Colombo from Frankie Gallo Cha Cha Cha.
The festival gets underway with a hearty breakfast created by Chef Nandu Jubany. If you're up for trying his traditional and energetic offer, don't wait long, as places are limited (get your €32 advance ticket now).
Not only will you want to fill your belly with the best food around town – 13 savoury dishes and three dessert options – at friendly prices, but you can also participate in the various gastro-related activities on throughout the day. You'll find tastings and pairings, workshops, talks and things to do for the kids in the family.
And last but not least, the festival operates respectfully with the environment and is committed to sustainability. All cups are 100 percent compostable, and all utensils are made from biodegradable materials.
You pay for both food and drink at the festival with tokens (each one costs €2), and the items cost €1 for water, €2 for beer, €3 per glass of wine, €5 for a savoury dish, and €4 for a dessert.
Tickets are sold at the door on the day of the event, but you can get advance tickets for the breakfast with Nandu Jubany or a VIP ticket, which includes a fast pass wristband to avoid queues, 14 tokens, and a special Time to Eat festival tote bag.
