Javier: I studied cello until I was 22 years old before suffering tendinitis so my cello playing days were over. And so began an existential crisis that saw me change my career and life. I began to study cookery at Hofmann School in Barcelona and my passion for the culinary arts began. I have worked in Michelin starred restaurants, relais desserts pastries, luxury hotels and I also worked in catering exclusive events. When I met Nicolas it was more clear to me to provide freelance, doing cooking lessons, culinary experiences and more. We invite you to come and share a meal with us and enjoy the fruits of our passion! Nicolas: I start cooking in a Michelin star restaurant as an apprentice when I was 14 years old. After cookery I train in service and wines, in 5* hotels and restaurants in Switzerland (Geneva - Lausanne). I was lately event manager and logistic coordinator. I always project to have a big open home to host foodies and art lovers people. I met Javier in the beginning of 2014 and we merge our skills to invite you in our universe of food and creativity.

What to expect at Xavi & Nico's place
Molt recomanable! Mai haguéssim pensat que darrere la porta d’aquell edifici del Raval s’hi amagués un espai tant increïble. És una antiga fàbrica reconvertida en estudi d’art i té un encant súper especial. La sorprenent (i boníssima!) versió del Ramen “a la catalana” i l’amabilitat dels amfitrions han estat la cirereta d’una nit diferent.
A must-do experience in an AMAZING place! If you love Ramen and want to taste the typical flavours of Catalonia, you’ll find the perfect union in Barcelona. We felt at home in Xavi and Nico’s incredible art studio in the city centre and made lots of new friends. Thank you guys!
