Gastronomic events in the region
In our regions there is a great culinary and gastronomic tradition as a result of the numerous products that both the orchards and the sea offer us.
This means that throughout the year we can enjoy festivals and gastronomic days that celebrate the exceptional qualities of these products:
In February Cambrils celebrates its galley days. A very little appreciated crustacean in the past but very fashionable in recent years that is exquisite both in dishes and in rice dishes.
In March the gastronomic days of the Tarragona prawn are held, an excellent quality product that only lives on these coasts. March is also the month of the artichoke days in Cambrils, a garden vegetable that is exquisite in both meat and fish preparations.
May is the great month for events of all kinds: Tarragona lives its Tarragona DTapes; For two weeks, establishments in the city offer elaborate tapas at a very good price. It is also the time of Tarraco a Taula, the days of historical gastronomic dissemination that bring dishes from ancient Rome to our table. Or the Falset wine fair. A great opportunity that is worth not missing to get to know the wines that are produced in both small and large wineries in this privileged wine region. Salou celebrates its tapas route, known as the Gastrotour; Cambrils celebrates its days of romesco -a very traditional sauce from this land that is part of a large number of dishes- and the town of La Ampolla celebrates its oyster festivals.
During the month of June the two tapas routes of Cambrils are celebrated, a Sea of Tapas and the Tapas Route. Likewise, during this month the DO Tarragona Wine Fair is also held in the city of Tarragona, where you can learn about the wines produced in this area.
The calendar continues in October with the Cambrils wine fair, “Entrada al país del vi”, another sample of gastronomy and wines from the DO Tarragona. And during the months of October and November the olive harvest is carried out and the oil is made; so during these months numerous festivals are held to taste and celebrate the arrival of the new oil.
And finally, in November, with the All Saints’ Day festival, you can eat the traditional panellets, sweets made from almond paste that are only eaten during these dates.
