Catalonia has all the ingredients to obtain the best gastronomy. There are many Catalan dishes, but below we are going to name a couple:
Calçots: Possibly one of the most typical and well-known dishes of Catalonia. It is a type of elongated onion with a mild and sweet flavour, grilled and accompanied by the typical Calçots sauce.
Cargols a la llauna (snails a la llauna): this is a culinary speciality of the Province of Lleida, although it is widespread throughout Catalonia. The dish is made with land snails cooked in a large can and accompanied by a spicy sauce, and finally baked. This dish can be eaten as a tapa – starter or as a main course.
Esqueixada: This is a cold salad with the following ingredients: shredded cod, Italian green and red pepper cut into small pieces, onion, olives and tomato (grated or diced).
Catalan Cream: It is the best known Catalan sweet, made from milk, eggs and a layer of burnt sugar on top.
