Rice Gastronomical Days

(1 vote)

Experts know that there isn't one rice cooked the same way as another always different from restaurant to restaurant. In the Costa Brava it's very typical to eat rice with fish as in paella, although there are many other recipes and what a better chance to try them than during these gastronomical days in Lloret de Mar which last until the end of May.

As part of the wine festival there are also olive oil tastings and cooking demonstrations throughout the weekend. This one was held in the main square of Falset and everyone had the same accessories of either a butane camping gas stove or a small charcoal grill on which to prepare their dishes.

Falset wine fair Priorato/Montsant

(0 votes)

For the first weekend in may Falset becomes the wine capital of Catalonia when it celebrated their 14th wine fair. Priorato and Montasant are the remote and arid areas which became one of the poorest parts of Spain after the lead mining industry closed down in the 1970's and agriculture was always marginal at best.

Traditional Catalan meal Part 2

(0 votes)

So, to continue the preparation for my Catalan meal with 90 year old couple Sion and Lluis from La Pera which is about 20kms from Girona.
So far we have the onions baking in the fireplace, the sausages are being grilled on the fire and now it is time to toast the bread in the flames. Once this is done we are ready to get the onions out (1.5 hrs in the fire) and peel the burnt outside layers off until we have the soft and moist interiors perfectly cooked. Olive oil an salt are added and we take the broad beans off the cooker too and take everything to the table.
