Barcelona's cuisine is
a clear example of what good Mediterranean food should be. In
Barcelona, the best quality olive oil, vegetables, produce, fish
and meats are the norm, making up a cuisine that is both delicate
and delicious and that will please the most demanding tastes.
It alternates the simplicity of dishes like pa amb tomàquet
(bread spread with tomato, olive oil and salt) with the refined
and elaborate specialities of modern fare.
Barcelona's cuisine merges tradition and innovation. Its dishes are varied and original due to the proximity of both the sea and the mountains, which offer their fine products. The combination of both sea and land gives rise to an original cuisine that knows the secrets of mixing the most diverse flavours, producing wonderful dishes like chicken with lobster.
