A tour of the most emblematic stalls at Barcelona’s La Boqueria market, acclaimed as the world’s best market.
Through the words of a chef who has spent half his life there, My Boqueria offers an inside glimpse of daily life at Barcelona’s foremost market and one of the world’s most famous. In a very personal style, Oscar Manresa tells the intimate story of the best known stalls of a place that occupies a fixed spot in the collective unconsciousness of world gastronomy. This is not a cookbook, although it could be. Of course, if after reading the book you don't feel an uncontrollable desire to go to the market and buy whatever you see and a terrible urge to enjoy a dish of bacon with caviar, then you have a serious problem...
The book includes a chapter with the most emblematic bars and restaurants in the market.
The prologue is written by Albert Adrià, a great market regular.
