One of the most fun gastronomic experiences in Catalonia is the calçotadas. A calçotada in Barcelona is a ritual event that includes friends, romesco sauce, bibs and obviously take calçots with your hands. Just be careful with the stains!
The calçots are vegetables like the green onions and the season to eat calçots is from January, February until March.
To eat calçots you requires skill and get your hands dirty. Take the calçot with one hand and with the other remove the layer scorched by the fire. Then dip the calçot in the calçot sauce and eat the inner white part.
