We really enjoyed the tour of Barcelona. We saw so many wonderful sites in such a short time, thanks to your ability to reschedule events due to our flight delay. Thought you would enjoy having this picture with the Levy boys – Jack, Jude and James. Should we return to the area, or have friends that visit, you’ll be the first person we recommend to show them around the city!’

With a dream to make tangible research become alive and living history. Combing tours and food experiences, this project aims to financially support non-profit Mozaika, a cultural ... moreJewish platform, and act as a conduit to explore Jewish heritage through gastronomic experiences, family traditions and the unique 1000 year old Jewish legacy in Cataluyna.

Set the heart of Barcelona’s old Jewish Quarter, Toldot brings you the magic of Casa Adret, a 13th-century palace-house. Atmospheric and enchanting, this award winning architectural gem showcases ancient walls, high ceilings, rooftop terrace with views of Barcelona. Entering its walls is a shortcut to the Middle Ages, and dining in its space is a truly rare and special opportunity. Once Jewish home, Casa Adret is now Mozaika’s Hub, a Jewish Cultural and Research centre where activities range from gastronomic experiences, concerts, debates, book festivals, cultural activities and more, bringing much needed cultural revival to Barcelona’s ancient Jewish quarter.

By booking a tour or dinner, you are financially supporting the running of Casa Adret, Mozaika and reviving Jewish life in Barcelona.

Monica, from Mexico City, was raised in a Syrian Jewish family, and Eva, from Melbourne Australia, with the Askenazi Polish connection. The duo explore Jewish gastronomy through family heritage, traditions and Jewish food legacy. Inspired by the way our mothers and grandmothers have always cooked for us, abundantly and with love, Monica and Eva believe that by sharing a table, we can create a shared experience of our past and celebrate each others individual histories.

Gothic Tour
Our tours have been developed by Mozaika members, historians and researchers, to bring rigorous investigation and explore the lesser know histories of the Catalan Jewish story. Duration 1.5-2 hours.

The Gothic Tour walks through the Jewish community of the Middle Ages, 11-14th century. We’ll walk through the gothic Jewish quarter and “El Call", where you can discover its history, important figures and Jewish life at the time. You’ll meet a poet, a doctor, a coral merchant, a great debate and glimpse Mediterranean trade. The tour includes exclusive access to Casa Adret, a medieval house once owned by the Jewish family of Astruc Adret until the riots of 1391, now head quarters and research centre of Mozaika.

Workshops
Jewish gastronomy is as vast and different as the countries that we come from. Food in Judaism, is immersed in tradition and in religion. We want to take you on a tour of the flavours of our mothers and grandmothers: their secrets, stories, textures, festivals. Every recipe has a story, which will unfold while we cook together, at the same time as share the history of the magical space we are in, Casa Adret. After preparing a traditional recipe, we will have a vermut on the terrace, with views of Barcelona’s old city, and share the fruits of our recently cooked recipes and more!
