Eat, Walk, Learn

Today, some exciting news on the ground: At long last, I have merged my passions for Sephardic food and history into a single, delicious and fascinating ramble through Barcelona.

The list includes reviews (mine) and links, the selection is very personal – and very short, though I expect it will grow.  I hope you enjoy this new feature!
