La Pleta has put together one fun food-foraging package, where the lucky participants are guided by a local expert on three, half-day tours through the Val d’Aran forest in the Spanish Pyrenees, learning how and where to pick the best mushrooms, berries and snails. Each night you will enjoy a magnificent dinner with the delicacies collected during the day.
The package also includes a cooking class with Executive Chef Angel Lorenzo on the art of Aranese cuisine, accommodations in an Occitania Double room, and daily breakfast buffet. The 4 day / 3 night “Mushrooms, Berries and Snails” program is available from now through September 21, 2008. The program costs $686 USD per person, based on double occupancy. Taxes and service charges are additional.
