One of our favorite things about the holiday season is that it provides different delights for different people. Some of us look forward to the inaugural lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree each year; while others will enlist the family to turn off Netflix and boot up basic cable for the first time in 11 ½ months to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas on NBC (commercials are part of the tradition, people!).
Whichever way you wrap it, the holidays offer every person something uniquely special to look forward to. This holiday season, Boqueria is embracing that tradition by offering special gifts for every person – and every budget.

COOKBOOK – FOR THE CHEF
Via Amazon – $17

In our new book, Boqueria: A Cookbook from Barcelona To New York, we swing open the kitchen doors to give readers a glimpse into our restaurants and the markets, locales, and people that inspired them. We hope that these recipes, all tested in Chef’s Marc’s own apartment kitchen, will inspire some delicious new holiday traditions in your home!
WINE EXPERIENCES – FOR THE OENOPHILE
Dinner and Wine pairings starting at $116 per person
Three unique experiences take you on a tour through Spanish wine country; enjoying 5 wines expertly paired with a Chef’s selection of classic Spanish tapas and seasonally inspired dishes.
Every time we uncork a bottle of Tempranillo, we watch the beauty of Rioja spill out into the glasses in front of us. That magic happens with every wine on our list. They all come from Spain, and each bottle holds a message from its origin. Crisp, white Albariño speaks in a sea-salty lilt from Galicia’s green coast. A ripe Catalan Cariñena finds its voice in the stony aromas and rugged tannins inherited from the craggy slate cliffs and toasty afternoons of Priorat. Each sip of these wines brings back sweet memories of Spain.
