Mercat writes in to reveal the identity of those visiting Catalan toques. Paula Casanovas, one of the youngest chefs to receive a Michelin star (at 25, as the owner the Costa Brava regions Les Petxines), has designed a seven-course, $50 tasting menu along with her partner in Lloret de Mars Freu, Felip Planas. Planas worked at el Bulli for two years before becoming the executive chef for Ferran Adris catering services and then going on to open OT.
