Preview: Calçotada in Altafulla

This past weekend, the BasqueStage crew hit the road for what I’ve been calling Spring Break Spain 2K12. We road-tripped from the Pais Vasco to Catalunya for a calçotada, a traditional feast that involves calçots (a kind of spring onion, charred on an open flame), romescu sauce, porrons full of wine and lots of fun with new friends.

Later, I’ll write more about the tradition of the calçotada, the way in which the calçot onions are cultivated and the different ways to enjoy the resulting food fest. For the moment, I just wanted to share some highlights from an amazing weekend in the beach town of Altafulla.  Thank you to the Glutton Club and a cool Catalan crew of calçot lovers. Gràcies!
