Not far from Bodevici, in Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, you’ll find Pyreneum, a shop with strong ties to Catalan terroir that offers profoundly flavorful, lusciously rich ice cream. Pyreneum’s owner, Stephane Orsoni, a Corsican, lives in the Catalan Pyrenees, in the beautiful area of La Cerdanya, which is where many of his ingredients come from.
A cooperative farming there produces superb, incredibly fragrant and sweet cream, made from milk that is just half-pasteurized to better retain those aromas. Orsoni also sources cheese, apples, pears, figs, berries, herbs, honey and even olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the mountains. – See more at:
