At the medieval hermitage of Sant Pau, sits a restaurant of the same name, set in a white-walled town, nestled in a picturesque rocky coastline. Chef Carme Ruscalleda 9the proud brandisher of 3 Michelin stars) may come from a Catalan family with rural roots, but she has a spirit that is universal. Drawing inspiration from traditional Catalan recipes, and from her own imagination, Carme executes dishes that are not only technically perfect, but that also have a distinctly human aspect, reflective of her own personality. Her magnificent degustation menu is a culinary tour de force: a three-hour cutting-edge Catalan adventure. The meal includes eight courses, with superbly crafted dishes like stuffed calamari and Iberian pork shoulder, but you'll also be treated to multipart "micro menus" at either end of the meal, with bite-size surprises like anchovy ice cream (a starter) and a tiny brochette of rabbit and kiwi fruit. The setting is rural and quaint, especially haunting by night as a lighthouse at nearby Calella flashes across the sea. Trency, elegant and accomplished Sant Pau is a Catalonian triumph.
