Calçots are a special type of green onion that Catalan farmers plant in a special way so it grows long, white and tender. They are harvested in the winter, and locals adore them! We organize special barbecue meals around them – the famous “calçotades”, and dip them in a nutty sauce called romesco. I personally believe that eating calçots is one of the most authentic experiences any traveler should have when visiting Barcelona or Catalonia in the winter. But it’s not always easy to find them! This is why in this tag you’ll be able to find all our blog posts about calçots, where to eat them, how to do it properly and more.
