Hola! As some of you might already know from my Instagram profile I am in Barcelona and will spend here 4 months, until the beginning of July. So which better occasion to walk around the city and discover amazing pastry shops for my column "on the road"?! I am so excited because I have already seen so many lovely places and can´t wait to talk to you about them.
The first amazing pastry shop I am presenting to you is the Pasteleria Hofmann. A delightful little place, with essential but rustic furniture where the amazing pastries and cakes stand out and look like million dollar jewels. Amongst the many temptations that can be found there are butter, almond, raspberry, and chocolate croissants, brioches with Catalan cream, neapolitans, macarons, lemon, chocolate, and vanilla cakes, chocolates, creamy deserts and bavaroise, marmalades and jams, and so much more...
Hofmann pastry shop is the result of Mey Hofmann´s passion and hard work. Famous in the field of gastronomy, Mey has actually studied economics (like I do!), but was able to follow her passion and get great satisfaction from it. In 2004 she got awarded a Michelin star, earning her international recognition in the culinary world. This pastry is her latest project and a must for those who consider pastry an art and a treat for the senses.
This magical place has a unique atmosphere and aroma; it melts perfectly with the flair of the Born district and its little alleys, cafes, restaurants, and shops. I can only recommend it to you very warmly. I´ve been there more than once and every time I have been more than satisfied.
