We propose various enogastronomic routes through Figueres to explore the history of modern Catalan cuisine, taste it, and pair it with some of the most authentic wines from Empordà, guided by sommelier Laura Masramon. It all began in the 1960s when chefs Lluís Duran Camps (1910-1981) and Josep Mercader Brugués (1926-1979), influenced by the techniques of French nouvelle cuisine, revolutionized the traditional Empordà recipe book of sea and mountain. Duran transformed the Celler de Ca la Teta into a gastronomic institution and Salvador Dalí's private dining room. Mercader is considered the father of modern Catalan cuisine, and his story is written by the renowned gastronomic critic Josep Pla. Both are pioneers of culinary avant-garde, which blossoms 50 years later with the Bulli Foundation.

The itinerary starts at El Motel, a restaurant founded by Josep Mercader, where we will taste the first Empordà wine accompanied by the seasonal dish offered by this emblematic restaurant, with the participation of Jaume Subirós. We will then walk to the Teatro-Museu Dalí, and from the base of the Galatea Tower or from the private terrace of the museum apartments, we will have a second wine tasting of DO Empordà wines. Finally, we will enter the Celler de Ca la Teta at Hotel Duran, run by the grandchildren of Lluís Duran Camps, Lluïsa and Ramon Duran. A museum space that has hosted countless meetings and celebrations of Salvador Dalí, steeped in a strong gastronomic tradition. There, we will taste another Empordà wine paired with one of its classic and supreme seafood and mountain dishes.
