LAURA – OUR PRIVATE CHEF
For many Catalan families food is the foundation of society. Family life here is centered on long and delicious meals enjoyed together. We cook from scratch on a daily basis and we value this precious time to socialize together. In 2016, Catalonia has been named European Region of Gastronomy, an honour that reflects the quality of its agricultural and culinary heritage and its tourism industry.
That’s why we’d love you to taste the great flavours of our local gastronomy as an important part of WODBREAKS Crossfit holidays experience. A local and experienced chef, Laura, will cook healthy, balanced meals for you daily with fresh locally grown food, meals that will help you recover from the day’s work out and give you strength for the following day. Our chef will also teach you to cook one of the local specialties.
