Museu de la Cuina de la Costa Catalana
The Catalan Coast Culinary Museum is located in a sixteenth-century home nestled in Tossa’s Sa Roqueta fishermen’s quarter. The house, built outside the town walls, was fortified to withstand attacks from pirates and privateers. Once the residence of Tomàs Vidal i Rey, one of the first indianos to return to the town after earning his fortune in Guatemala in the second half of the eighteenth century, the house was later used for a number of different purposes, including a fishermen’s tavern in the early twentieth century. Today, visitors can see a traditional Catalan kitchen complete with utensils and a hearth where food was cooked over an open fire, along with a cold room that was dug into the rock to preserve food. The museum offers guided and self-guided tours, workshops and culinary experiences that incorporate other points of interest in the seaside town of Tossa de Mar: the fishermen’s quarter, local estates and farmers, iconic food and kitchen accessory stores, bakeries, restaurants that feature traditional and creative cuisine as well as family-owned, gourmet hotels.
