Calcot (Large Spring Onion) Chargrilled with Catalonian Sauce


This simple dish is a homage to the Calcot festivals which go on in Catalonia during January. Huge BBQs are built in the streets and bunches of onions are grilled over the open flames. Fun and inspiring to attend and the flavour is to be savoured. The onions are served on roof tiles or wrapped in news paper with Catalonia sauce and smashed almonds. The smell and aroma which drifts round the streets is amazing.
