The world´s first dessert restaurant

April 7, 2010

While it’s pouring chaotic amounts of rain here in Rio and I can’t get over the sweet tooth Easter seems to bring us, all I can think of is… dessert.

While my thoughts are dripping with sugariness, in Barcelona, lovers of all things sweet indulge.

It is in Barcelona where the world’s first dessert restaurant was created. Espai Sucre is the true antidote of a conventional restaurant, featuring four menus, one of them being an ode to chocolate.

The ingredients vary from the traditional strawberries and chocolate to dark beer, pepper, mint, saffron, ginger, hazelnut, truffles… the list goes on.

If after treating yourself to a sweet and visually appealing meal, you wish to take these creative recipes home, all you have to do is sign up for a cooking class at the restaurant and show off at home with innovative desserts.

Places like this, after comings and goings to Madrid and Barcelona, make it harder to decide which city is my favorite between the two. No doubt it is an ongoing pleasure to uncover inspiration through Catalan innovations.

    That looks so amazing – any restaurant that has separate menus for the type of dessert is just tops in my book – that dessert is a work of art!
