We <3 Calçots

A few weeks back I joined my first “Calçotada” in one of my favorite barrios of Barcelona, Gracia. A Calçotada is a Catalan tradition of BBQing green onions over fire until their outer layer is completely burnt and black. After that you peel off the outer layer with your hands (that’s where it gets super messy), dip the whole thing into garlic sauce (so strong that it makes you teary-eyed) and enjoy your chaotic, typically Catalan and hilarious veggie feast…
