Chef Enrique Valenti

Chef Enrique Valenti was born in Madrid, but cooks in Barcelona at Marea Alta, a new seafood restaurant taking the city by storm. This high-flying restaurant overlooks the entire city with 360º views, which are complemented by a sleek and modern interior decor. Chef Valenti’s food is more than worthy of this stunning setting. The quality of the seafood, and the skill with which he prepares it, is exceptional, even by super-high Spanish standards. As a testament to Chef Valenti’s talent, we saw at our recent visit the renowned chef of another Barcelona seafood restaurant dining at the next table over from us.

Because it is so special, Marea Alta was the only non-elBulli related restaurant that we featured on our “Legacy of elBulli Tour” of Barcelona and Catalunya this past June. Its sister, Marea Baja, located one level below Marea Alta, is a fantastic Sangria Bar, redefining what great Sangria is.

We are super-excited to have Chef Valenti come to Troy, New York, to be our fourth guest chef in the Rascal + Thorn Dinner Series.

A Seafood Extravaganza

This seafood-centric event will feature the freshest fish and shellfish from Pura Vida Fisheries, alongside some primo Spanish product. All will be served on beautiful plates from Crucial Detail, M.Tucker Co. and Steelite USA.

A Special Evening

It’s only fitting that this event will be held at Peck’s Arcade, which is certainly one of the most cutting-edge, creative restaurants in the Capital District. This unique dinner party experience will feature a welcome Sangria cocktail with canapes and dining in the stylish main room looking upon the restaurant’s open kitchen.

Estrella Damm, the renowned beer from Spain will be flowing along with optional wine pairings from 22 Second Street (Peck’s Arcade’s sister business) and a cash bar for cocktails. Tickets will be very limited with an afternoon seating and an evening seating, so don’t wait to purchase your tickets.

    Our @rascalandthorn Water of Life Collaboration Tour continued to Glenglassaugh Distillery. Such great hospitality by Stewart Buchanan, Global Brand Ambassador. A visit to the Sandend Beach, full Distillery Tour and a fabulous tasting and feast to end with. What a great afternoon! The Sandend tasted like the beach!

    We started our 2nd @rascalandthorn Collaboration Whisky Tour with @wateroflifefilm with a visitor to Tormore Distillery in the Speyside Region of Scotland. It was really an incredible visit to the distillery with one of their Senior Distillery Managers, George, who took us through everything in detail. Then off to barrel making, hands on, and a trip to the water source for more drams! And to sample from the spring. A great way to kick off our 2nd Tour with @weedrambigman.
