Asparagus Festival in Gavà
It is well known that in Spain food is a cult, a sacred rite, a pleasure and an occasion to meet. Catalonia, with its 53 Michelin-star restaurants, is a prime example. Seasonal gastronomic fairs are held here all year round: onion calçots, sea urchins, pumpkins, artichokes, honey, mushrooms and others.
In fact, these fairs are not just traditional fairs. They are big celebrations with singing and dancing, cookbook presentations, photography contests, product contests, performances for children and adults. And, of course, with special gastronomic offers for visitors.
So, from April 22 to May 10, a traditional asparagus fair is held in the city of Gavà. The event has been held here annually since 1932. It was originally an asparagus exhibition and competition where local farmers displayed their produce, and now
25 city restaurants prepare a special menu in which the main ingredient is locally grown asparagus.
So, if you’re still undecided about what to do this weekend, don’t miss the chance to try this extremely healthy local product at one of the town’s restaurants.
