What you'll do

Cook like a true Tossa fisherman!

We would like to invite you into our typical Tossa flat to learn all about the wonderful history and how to prepare Tossa de Mar's most famous and signature dish....Traditional Tossa Fisherman's "Cim i Tomba"!

First we'll meet and learn a little village history at the fisherman's Socors Chapel in town center Plaça Espanya. Next, a short walk to our nearby flat, where we will get to know each other over a pre-meal local vermut aperitif. From there, we'll move to the kitchen and learn how to prepare and cook a delicious fish stew, made famous in Tossa by our local "Pescadors". Cooked in the traditional ceramic pot, this "people's dish" is simple yet flavorful and delicious!

To complete our meal, we will teach you the secret of making the perfect hand-turned allioli...a true art, and the necessary final ingredient to top off our Cim i Tomba.

Finally, after enjoying a great meal we've made together (accompanied by a local wine!) we will finish with teaching you the traditional art of making a fisherman's hot rum Cremat! A blend of coffee, citrus and spices...mixed with rum and burned with fire, this sweet and amazing drink is a fisherman's staple and makes the perfect digestive after a hearty meal!

We hope that by the time you leave, you will have a new love and appreciation for the wonderful history, culture and traditions of Tossa life!

We adored our experience with Rick and Lilu, who were kind, welcoming, knowledgeable and so much fun! When it comes to Tossa culture, they really know their stuff. The food and drinks were delicious, the conversation was fascinating, and we were lucky enough to get to connect with them again later on in our stay and enjoy a hidden-away local concert. We are planning on cooking Cim & Tomba for all of our friends back home very soon :) Rick and Lilu, you are exceptional, thank you!

Wonderful experience, highly recommend! Great for anyone who wants to get a feel of what local life in Tossa is like. Both Lilu and Rick are extremely welcoming and friendly, and will gladly share with you everything you would like to know. The cooking course is amazing, with great emphasis on the history of the food, how the dishes developed and what they symbolized. My wife and I are extremely greatful we had the opportunity to partake in it!!!

The cooking event with Rick and Lilu was really an enriching experience, on a culinary and a personel level. Rick and Lilu welcomed us very warmly and we were able to prepare a delicious meal in a pleasant atmosphere. I can highly recommend the event, otherwise you would miss meeting two very beautiful people and a great experience in Tossa. Rick and Lilu, lets stay and in touch and for shure, we will see each other again. Saray & Diana
