The region of Catalonia has a strong culinary reputation for classic, down-to-earth food which would be impossible without a handful of essential ingredients. Olive oil, jamón and bell peppers are the top three. Due to its proximity to the Mediterranean, it includes great seafood dishes and a variety of rice dishes. One of which we will make in this workshop:
Seafood and Chicken Paella; Paella, in Catalan cuisine, is a dish of saffron infused rice cooked with meats, seafood, and vegetables. Originating in the rice-growing areas on the Mediterranean coast, the dish is especially associated with the region of Valencia.
Croquetas de Jamón is a type of tapas. Croquetas are one of those dishes which can make it to your list of favourite comfort foods. Fried and crunchy, and it can literally be any flavour you like! Croquetas de Jamón is one of the main favourites.
Crèma Catalana; There is nothing better than ending a leisurely lunch (or dinner) with a Crema Catalana and a strong café solo. Maybe not as famous as the French Creme Brûlée, but certainly as delicious.
