You can try Catalan cuisine in all sorts of ways, not just at the dining table. If you are a foodie, you can enjoy unique experiences, such as a day fishing with professional fishermen. Also, you will learn to cook typical dishes, visit cheese producers, oil mills and more than 300 wineries where you can get to know the land in the company of its producers.
What gastronomic experience are you looking for? Trying shrimp from Palamós is a privilege in and of itself, but there is something even better: catching them yourself and eating them in the boat. The air you breathe, filled with the smell of the sea, heightens the taste of the shrimp. You will never feel that explosion of sea smells on your palate anywhere else. Did you like the shrimp, and now you want to learn about crustaceans and the fishing systems? It’s very easy. Visit the Palamós Fishing Museum. The permanent exhibition and the organised activities will help to expand your knowledge of the marine world of the Costa Brava.
But you won’t just eat shrimp. Catalonia recommends a variety of extensive gastronomic experiences. You can discover the origins of olive oil, the basic ingredient for Catalan traditional cuisine, by harvesting the olives, putting on an apron and preparing a typical Catalan dish in the kitchen classrooms that are found throughout the region; taste the Vic sausages in the workshop or travel back in time to uncover secrets of the ancient Roman empire in Catalan gastronomy by preparing a thousand-year-old recipe yourself. Final tasting is almost obligatory.
The advantage is that in any corner of Catalonia, you are guaranteed to have a gastronomic experience.
Experience truly authentic gastronomy in Catalonia: go fishing with professional fishers, learn to cook traditional Catalan dishes or toast with a glass of Priorat after exploring wineries on horseback.
