My First Calçotada in Barcelona, Spain https://t.co/XZhs7zTY4i

My First Calçotada in Barcelona, Spain https://t.co/XZhs7zTY4i

Did you ever see that Bourdain episode where he went into the Catalan countryside and drank wine from these long spouts while eating grilled onions dipped in an orange Romesco sauce? Ever since I saw that episode, I've been salivating over that. And fortunately, I found a tour that took us out to Alella just north of Barcelona for some wine tasting before heading to Restaurante Can Roca in Tiana for those calçots above. It was everything I imagined it to be, with the wonderful aroma of grilled onions pervading the air once we stepped out of the van. It was messy too, using our hands to slip the charred skin off before dipping the warm insides in that delicious sauce, not to mention some pa amb tomàquet as well as botifarra sausages, among others. The porron wine spout was fun too; surprisingly I did OK on the second time without much spillage onto my shirt. Yay!
