The Catalans love nothing more than meeting with friends and family for an afternoon aperitive before lunch. Take a piece of this tradition with a botel of red or white wines of the DO Empordà. They are tasty and enjoy a great reputation.
That’s right, the Catalans love their chocolate. The most obvious place to buy your cocoa keepsakes is at the stunning Rocambolesc by Roca brothers. The quality of the chocolate paired with the beautiful packaging makes this a beautiful souvenir or gift.
The Oli de l’Empordà is extra virgin olive oil with a protected Denomination of Origin. As the name suggests, it is produced, especially, in the counties of Alt and Baix Empordà, although it is also made in Pla de l’Estany and Gironès. There are three different varieties: the argudell and the corivell —sweet taste with bitter touches—, and the verdal —fruity with a slight spicy touch—.
The Xuixo, pronounced “shooshoo”, is a sweet brioche, made from butter dough and covered with sugar. But its most special secret is found inside: a delicious cream filling. So, if you have a sweet tooth, you can’t miss this delicious treat.
