Catalonia is one of the autonomous regions in Spain with a mediterranean spirit, and a healthy selection of unique products that are recognized with certified quality marks. These include rice from the Ebro Delta, potatoes from Prades, "fesol" beans from Santa Pau, "ganxet" beans from Vallès, and "calçots" from Valls—large green onions that are flame-grilled in one of the most popular local dishes.

When it comes to seafood, the Catalans really know how to make the most of sea urchins, the peculiar "espardenya" (or sea cucumber), and rockfish, which they use to make many of their seafood stews, known as "suquets."
