SARAH STOTHART Chef, food writer

Inspired by the local and seasonal tastes of Spain, Sarah Stothart – an Aussie-born, globetrotting, cook extraordinaire – opened one of Barcelona’s first dining clubs, the acclaimed Tapioles 53. 

Buying the ingredients for her restaurant daily from Barcelona’s markets, a relationship with the farmers and flavours of the region was born and this, along with a love of Spain’s traditional food, led to Sarah becoming a sought-after member of Barcelona’s food scene.

For those joining our Northern Spain trip, you'll get to share Sarah's love of Spanish cuisine on Day 2 when she hosts a market walk – where you can meet the stallholders she's been buying from for many years – and a hands-on cooking class.
