Documentary Fotografie

How did Barcelona look like 50-100 years ago? What did people dress like? There are currently a few fotografic exhibitions going on which exactly show that. If you want to see how much the city has changed, and what is still the same, I recomment all of these exhibitions.

Also to be mentioned the famous catalan fotografer Francesc Català Roca, who’s exhibition in the Pedrera just closed, but will be one of the most important persons to document the city life during the last century: www.catala-roca.com

calçotada

calçotadaRather than a normal dish, the calçotada is a happening: specially for this event cultured spring onions are barbecued on an open fire. The way to eat them, is to hold to one end of the onion and draw off the outer, burnt layer with the other hand. The onions are served with a special sauce on the base of tomatoes, almonds and olive oil. Dip and enjoy… yummy! For all the non vegetarians amongst you: This is usually just the first plate before a barbecue style main course, so don’t say no if you ever get invited to a calçotada!
