Spanish Food and food behaviors

Eat Spain Up! New York 2016

Next week a unique cultural event is happening in New York, Eat Spain Up. Food and cultural sessions, classes, tasting guided and much more.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is my favorite American holiday. Almost everybody celebrates it. Some New Yorkers fly to other states to be with their families, some prefer to feel warmer somewhere away from the city, and many just stay in New York to celebrate with their loved ones. What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Most important, what are you thankful for?

By Kim Warp , The New Yorker

I am thankful for all my past Thanksgiving. For the one I spent in Brooklyn with my Italian family. For the one I spent Upstate New York with my American family. For the one I spent in Summit, New Jersey, with my other American family. For the one I spent in Roosevelt Island with my Argentinian family! And I am thankful for the one I am going to celebrate with my Catalan family here in Barcelona!

I am thankful for all the great people I met in New York.

Thanks to you for reading Barcelona Loves New York!

See you next Thanksgiving in New York!

With whomever and wherever you are going to enjoy this day, I wish you all have a stellar Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving!!

New York Art Book Fair 2010

My first New York Art Book Fair back on 2010 was an exciting and beautiful experience. I remember I went with two friends, both in the publishing field, writers and editors, like my self. We lost each other in the first rooms. Of course, we didn’t have enough in one day and make a second trip at the fair for art and book lovers. I keep coming back, year after year because it is still my favorite fair of the year. Whatever your plans are this weekend, you must include this fair in your agenda. Furthermore, the building that hosts the fair is enough reason to get there!
