“The Chef on Wheels trips are really something special. They combine three of my favorite things in a single week: cycling, food and travel." - Celebrity Chef Seamus Mullen
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co. has once again teamed up with award-winning New York celebrity chef, Seamus Mullen, to offer travelers the exclusive opportunity to travel and taste with the accomplished epicurean. Seamus Mullen will be hosting this year’s Chef on Wheels bike tour in the current center of the gastronomic world—Costa Brava, Spain. From June 28 through July 3, 2015, Seamus and twelve lucky travelers will immerse themselves in the region’s delights by shopping at local markets, enjoying intimate cooking classes, dining at the famous Celler Can Roca restaurant, and cycling through spectacular scenery.
After the success of last year’s sold-out Chef on Wheels bike tour to Italy, the celebrity chef and DuVine decided to return to Seamus’ culinary roots in 2015. “No place in Europe is as near and dear to me as Spain,” says Seamus. “I spent many years living and cooking in Spain and I can’t wait to return.” The celebrated chef earned a national reputation as a leading connoisseur on Spanish food with the 2006 opening of Boqueria, the first critically acclaimed and highly successful tapas restaurants in New York. He has since thrilled New York foodies with his award-winning Tertulia restaurant and his trendy El Colmado tapas bar, as well as delighted Food Network viewers with appearances on The Next Iron Chef and Chopped.
The collaboration between Seamus Mullen and DuVine’s elite team of trip designers has produced a one-of-a-kind bike tour. “The Chef on Wheels trips are really something special. They combine three of my favorite things in a single week: cycling, food and travel,” says Seamus. “La Costa Brava is such a magical place, and traveling by bicycle is the perfect way to get to know it!” Key highlights of the trip include:
- Traveling and tasting with award-winning New York celebrity chef Seamus Mullen through the current center of the gastronomic world
- Seeking out the freshest local ingredients with Seamus at the weekly fish market in Palamos
- Learning the secrets of superb Spanish cuisine with two intimate cooking classes lead by Seamus
- Dining at the exclusive three-Michelin-starred Celler Can Roca, voted Best Restaurant in the World in 2013
