I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Friday Feature Photo: Catxoflino – Catalan Cuisine

Catxoflino

Photographer: Ryan Opaz

Capture Date: September 28, 2013

Location: Costa Brava, Spain

About: Catxoflino is your quintessential Catalan surf and turf using anything and everything on hand. Like jazz, it’s the result of pure improve and intuition. Some of the most popular are:

  • calçots (similar to a spring onion) with pork feet and asparagus
  • crayfish, mussels, clams, ribs, beans and meatballs
  • crayfish, mussels, meatballs, sausage and potato
  • goat, lobster, sausage, ribs and aioli
  • And the King of Catxoflinos: cod, pigeon, squid, sausage, potato, egg and wine

Great video by Fabian Laine on Catxoflino.
