What’s to Eat And Do Near Sitges in Catalunya?

 

  Sitges is a popular beach town south of Barcelona.We spent 3 days there. Our friends from Barcelona. Rosa, Juliá, and Bernát took us on an adventure nearby to Cordoniú Cava Winery, Montseurrat and St Mon Monastery. So fantastic!

  Montserrat  

Codorníu Cava Winery Tour was unbeatable! This 450 year old family business is the oldest in Spain. The modernistic style architecture and state of the art technology combined with hundreds of years in wine making experience produce the best Cava.

  

7 floors below ground into the old cask caverns!

  

Antique wine cases

   

The best of the Cavas, Spain’s answer to French champagne!

 

St Mon Monastery, part of an estate and foundation including Hotel Mon, 3 restaurants, cooking schools, produce gardens and the expertise of Ferran Adrià, voted the worlds best chef!

The monastery has museum quality video imaging to recreate the original look

Easter lunch at St Mon   
Strawberry and Tomato Soup

 

Flatbread with smoked eggplant, roasted red pepper and anchovies with black olive tapenade and a lettuce frisée.

 
Bacalau, salt cod, over Romanesco sauce topped with chopped hard cooked egg. An Easter traditional food in Catalunya!

 

“Secret pork” with a wine sauce and roasted potatoes

   
Chocolate mousse and cake

 

Citrus cake and cream, an Easter tradition 

Grilled Spring Onions and a sauce, a Catalun speciality! Called Calcot

  
   

The onions are peeled of their blackened outer skins at the table and then eaten by tilting your head back and dropping the long onion into your mouth

   
   

El porrò de vi

Red wine is poured from this pourer straight into your mouth. No glass needed!

   
Goat cheese, bread, tomatoes and Cava for dinner back in our apartment in Sitges!

An incredible journey in Catalunya thanks to our friends from Barcelona 😘
