Introduction As with nearly all cultures, Catalonian cooking has great character.Its innovative cooking often looking back to history for inspiration.Although ultimately Mediterranean, Catalonia has been influencedby various cultures over the centuries: the Greeks, Romans, theItalians in the eighteenth century and the French have all left theirmark on this complex cuisine. Catalonia has absorbed the best ofeach country and created a culinary package which forms part ofthe popular wisdom of the region. The Catalonian cuisine uses the same ingredients as in otherMediterranean regions: tomatoes, garlic, fresh herbs, olive oil(particularly those of the Denomination of Origin Garrigues andSiurana, prepared using the variety of olive called the"arbequina"), onions, cod The traveller is sometimes reminded ofdishes from Provence, Rosellon, Naples or Sicily: cities whichinvaded the Kingdom of Aragon of which modern Catalonia formedpart. 12. Vic salchichn sausage The quality of the best lean pork, careful manufacture and the climaticconditions of the Barcelona county of La Plana de Vic, which hugelyinfluence its curing, give the Vic salchichn sausage its unmistakablearoma and flavour which have won it the international fame it deserves. To make it, meat and bacon from top-quality white pigs is used togetherwith white and black pepper and salt, all macerated for at least 48 hoursand packed in natural skins. The nearby Montseny mountains, whichgenerate a gentle but continuous breeze and cause a great deal ofmist, influence the curing of the pieces for 45 days, during which theyacquire the sensory qualities that have made them so highly prized. Themixture is perfectly bound together and is very aromatic and tasty. Theyare presented in candle shapes, 7-8cm in diameter and between 50 and60cm long. 13. Panellets Panellets are a traditional sweet fromCatalua, prepared for Dia de Todos losSantos or All Saints Day and served withmoscatel or cava, Spanish sparkling wine. Itis made of equal parts ground almonds andsugar, formed into balls and decorated withpine nuts, rolled in cocoa powder, candiedcherries or coconut flakes. They can also beflavored with coffee or cinnamon. The mostpopular type is the one rolled in pine nuts. 14. The Botifarra with mongetes Now you can make the butifarra its time for a recipethat uses them. Sausages have an affinity with beans -think Toulouse in a cassoulet, chorizo with chickpeas oreven a tin of Heinz all day breakfast (maybe) - and thisdish follows in that tradition. One minor differencewith butifarra amb mongetes though is the sausagesarent cooked in the beans and the beans arefried, something Ive never before seen as an end toboiled beans. Mongetes are a Catalan white bean, I have seen haricotmentioned on the packaging along with the Catalunyanname but theyre a lot larger than haricot Ive seenover here. 15. Catalan Cream Crema Catalana or Catalan Cream is theCatalan name and version of the Frenchdessert, crme brule. In fact, many regionslay claim to the origin of the dessert.Wherever it originated, enjoy and let itdissolve in your mouth! It is a great dessert forSpring, since it is also called Crema de SantJosep, or St. Josephs cream, traditionallyprepared on March 19th, St. Josephs Day, theSpanish equivalent of Fathers Day in the USA. 16. Easter egg Laster week here in Barcelona, known asSemana Santa (Holy Week), would not becomplete without making the Mona de Pascuacake, Mona, a Moroccan term meaning gift. Traditionally given by a godparents to theirgodchildren at Easter, the original cake is like agigantic doughnut containing boiled eggs. Theexact amount of eggs depends on the age of thegodchild. 17. FAUNA OF CATALONIA 18. LLOP GRIS (GREY WOLF) The wolf is a mammal of the orderCarnivora. The dog (Canis lupusfamiliaris) is a descendant of thewolf, and is considered asubspecies of the wolf, the mostimportant differences betweenthem are (in the case of the wolf)ears a bit more rightwing over thenose, a very strong jaws and clawslonger, though, as there are avariety of wolves, and especially ofdog breeds, it is difficult to clarifythe differences. 19. LS BRU (BROWN BEAR) The brown bear isalmost unmistakable: Its size, thicklegs, head, too bigand strong and roundears, along with furwhich is mostlybrown, but can getvery dark shadespresent, are the mainfeatures to identifythe species. 20.
