Sunday Sabor: Cooking with Cephalopods

January 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join Enrique, a passionate Spanish chef, forager and fisherman as he teaches how to cook with Spain’s spectacular seafood

Since the middle ages the Spanish have looked to the sea for culinary inspiration, and the sea has answered in the form of a boundless variety of edible treasures, many of which come from the class Cephalopoda. This class of creatures, which includes squid, octopus, cuttlefish, and nautilus, is unique in its variety, and the Spanish coast is unique for their unmatched abundance. Dishes containing cephalopods are often the star of fiestas and religious festivities and in this workshop our Barcelona-based chef Enrique will share with us the secrets of preparing some of Spain’s signature seafood dishes. He’ll show you his fishing tricks, and then you’ll discover how to correctly clean and prepare seafood like octopus, cuttlefish, and calamari.

Once you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to get in the kitchen and start cooking. Cook along and learn to make a delicious local Spanish dish with Enrique, or if you prefer to just sit back and take in all Enrique’s cooking tips, to create your own Spanish dishes later.


About the Chef:

Enrique is a half-Italian, half-Spanish chef and art historian. He was raised in the kitchens of his two grandmothers, who he credits with his passion for food, wine and art. He teaches cooking classes and gives food tours in Barcelona, and when he is not sharing the culinary secrets of his city with guests he goes fishing off the Barcelona coast so he can enjoy the freshest fish and seafood at home.
