For those of you unfamiliar with Catalan cuisine, here is a look at what it’s all about: “The essence of Catalan food lies in its sauces for meat and fish. There are five main types: sofregit (fried onion, tomato and garlic); samfaina or chanfaina (sofregit plus red pepper and aubergine or courgette); picada (based on ground almonds, usually with garlic, parsley, pine or hazel nuts, and sometimes breadcrumbs); allioli (pounded garlic with olive oil, often with egg yolk added to make more of a mayonnaise); and romesco (an almond, tomato, olive oil, garlic and vinegar sauce, also used as a salad dressing)” (Aboutbarcelona.com). Interested in this eclectic gourmet food? Call Mercat a La Planxa for a reservation today. The price per person is $65.
