We were shopping in my local grocery store when I saw them.
"Calçots!" I yipped with excitement.
My sister was immediately alert....
"Ohhhhhhhhh, let's have those for supper!"
A pause while I contemplated the work and mess involved in doing a calçotada indoors with a tiny oven and charcoal.
"Yeah! Let's do it!"
So we did. It took ages, made a huge mess, and was delicious.
Here's some photos.
Ready to start eating --------
You sort of pull the soft middle out of the charred outside and dip it in a Romesco sauce. Mmmmmmmmm.
