Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

The fact that the first recipes that were ever written down in Europe were in Catalan confirms the strong tradition of Catalonian food culture. Pa amb tomàquet (tomato bread) is a popular starter, whilst Crema Catalana is a typical and tasty dessert. Mar i Montanya (a combination of poultry with fish and crustaceans) and Calçotada are other traditional dishes that you definitely should try. And if you are celebrating a special occasion, you should drink sparkling cava.
