In the days leading up to Easter, Catalonia's patisseries always put on a delicious and original shop window display: cakes and figures made of chocolate, some in such complex detail that they could be easily be termed works of art. This typically Catalan and Valencian tradition is known as the "Mona de Pascua" (the Easter 'Mona'). Mona is the Spanish word for female monkey but, in this context, the term derives from the Arabic word "munna", which loosely means "a treat for your mouth", a gift in the form of a sweet confection that the Moors would give to their overlords to celebrate the end of Lent. Catholic tradition involves godfathers giving the 'mona' to their godchildren on Easter Sunday, although the correct day to enjoy them is on Easter Monday, which is a public holiday in Catalonia, when families come together to eat the 'mona' as their dessert. You can taste this exquisite tradition at the Mirador de Colón.
Winter in Catalonia has a lot to offer, and one of the tastiest things about it is undoubtedly the arrival of "calçots" (spring onions) season. This type of onion is a gastronomic pleasure that focuses its production on the area of the Camp de Tarragona but manages to makes it into every restaurant in the country. Eating them is a ritual in itself, which includes grilling them using a brick tile where the calçots are roasted, they are then wrapped up with newspaper and are paired with a magnificent sauce called romesco, which has hazelnuts, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, peppers, garlic and tomato. The calçots should be dipped in the sauce and in order to avoid staining your clothes, everyone usually wears a big bib that also adds to the festive and fun atmosphere of a calçotada. There are lots of restaurants in Barcelona that include them in their menus, such as Mussol, Can Vador and Can Travi Nou, and certain wineries such as Sumarroca or in an open-air architectural museum like the Poble Espanyol also offer them to their visitors.
