Hofmann was established in 1983, out of a dream to be combined with top professionalism.
Mey Hofmann intended to create a school where everyone interested in gastronomy, cooking or pastry found a way for training and development. And she got it absolutely right.
Today Hofmann is a group that comprises the prestigious School of Hostelry, the Hofmann Restaurant (1 Michelin star and at the same time a training centre where students learn to perfect their techniques), Taverna Hofmann (traditional cuisine reinterpreted by our chefs) and the emblematic Hofmann Pastry Shop, next to the annex space of La Seca, that cake lovers have as a destination in Barcelona.
We share your passion for gastronomy. Welcome to Hofmann.
With her vast experience, Mey felt the need to share her knowledge and passion for the culinary world and in 1983 she created her own school of gastronomy in Barcelona. TheHofmann School of Hostelry is internationally recognized for its high standards, quality of teaching and its own know-how.
The Hofmann Restaurant started its activity in 1992 and was awarded a Michelin Star in 2004. It is in that kitchen where students put to practice their techniques, learning the real running of a restaurant kitchen and always following the demands of an establishment of such a standard and quality that is the Hofmann Restaurant.
Pastry cooking, the other great passion of Mey, led to the opening in 2008 of the Hofmann Pastry Shop: an emblematic place that has become the main and indisputable reference in the world of pastry in Barcelona. Located in the neighborhood of Born-La Ribera, it bakes on a daily basis cakes, biscuits, cookies and its classic and famous croissants. Perhaps the most amazing of all of them, its croissant of mascarpone, was unanimously chosen in 2010 as the Best Croissant in Spain. In 2016 the Hofmann Pastry Shop was also awarded the recognition for the Best Tea Biscuit in Spain.
In 2012, and also in the Born district, theHofmann La Seca tasting room was opened, located in Espai Brossa. It is a cozy and perfect place for breakfast, brunch, a snack or simply for a good coffee. Two years later, in 2014, ElRacó Hofmann was opened. A space within the Gastronomic Restaurant where lunch and dinner is served under a new concept. Ideal for those who do not have much time for a meal, but do not want to give up on good gastronomy.
The expansion of Hofmann continued that same year 2014 with the Hofmann Taverna, a restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere in which traditional cooking is reinterpreted. With our magnificent charcoal grills it is the ideal place to share and enjoy our dishes, offering our guests a whole new gastronomic experience.
