Calçots constitute a single-dish meal and are cooked on a grill, if possible in the open air and with family and/or friends. Calçots originated in Tarragona, specifically from the region of Valls. The best calçots are those that you buy at the market and then cook immediately at the barbaque. But if you don't feel like cooking, you can go to a Masia or a restaurant in the country where they will prepare them for you in traditional style.
Eating calçots is a unique experience that we recommend to everyone who has the chance to visit Catalunya during this season. For more information on this culinary treasure, or to enjoy a calcotada on your upcoming trip to Spain, contact The Spanish Touch and we'll be glad to help.
