Calçotada – a gastronomic party at La Terrassa de Duquesa

Just thinking for a moment about Calçotada make us hungry even if we’ve already have a dinner. These soft white chives recently picked up from the fire accompanied with botifarra, grilled meat and wine are the best of the best of the winter season gastronomy in Catalonia. So let’s see in what consists Calçotada – a gastronomic party you shouldn’t miss.


The tradition seems has over 100 years and was discovered by the chance thanks to a farmer from Valls village. In particular, Xat de Benaiges was a man who roasted on the flaming fire the chives of white onion instead of doing it over the coals. Since then it was cultivated especially to be cooked on flame.

From the early 20’s century Calçotada became a regular meal for many vallenses families during the holidays. Typically, people had used to go to the farmhouse to cook the spring onions during a long period between November and April.


 So as it is the beginning of the season we are happy and proud to announce an opening of a gastronomic party at La terrassa de Duquesa. Since January, 17 of 2015 you are welcome to our terrace to try Calçots together with your family and friends. And the most important thing you haven’t to take a car and we’re sure the views from La Terraza will impress you!

See you soon!
