During our month in Barcelona last Fall, some friends who live there invited us over to their house to cook together. Monica grew up in Barcelona and Ricky is from NYC but has lived in Spain for many years. Together they founded the company Delicious & Sons which includes a variety of Mediterranean products (developed by Ricky) including sauces, spreads, oils, vinegars and more, that are all organic, vegan and gluten free...and, well, DELICIOUS! I had fun cooking with them because they infused flavor into a simple dish so effortlessly.
Ricky and Monica have a stunning home – it's like an oasis in the city. Their sun-drenched chef's kitchen overlooks a dreamy backyard that makes outdoor entertaining seem easy. Outside they have a huge vine-covered table that they gather friends around regularly. Using their products we made some simple appetizers to enjoy outside one afternoon during our visit. And of course, I took lots of photos as we cooked.
