Q: Patrick, I did not think you were near Barcelona. What gives?
A: Yes, you are right, we did not get to Barcelona this time, although were there a few years ago. The reason that this subject is brought up is because of the horrendous happenings there last week.
Q: So why have you included something about Barcelona in this Post?
A: Because our close friends Neil and Toula were just two blocks away in Barcelona when the vigoro hit the mixmaster.
Q: OK, but this is a food and wine blog so why cover this at all?
Because in spite of the carnage et al in Barcelona, Neil and Toula have encountered some magnificent dishes in Barcelona. I have decided to put these snaps into this as a Guest Post.
Thanks, Neil. They all looked magnificent.
