...because it is calçotada time in the countryside...

An hour by train from Barcelona is a picturesqe pueblo called Altafulla (which did, perplexingly, appear uninhabitated when we wandered through it at 1pm).  We went to for an authentic Calçotada lunch (a calçot is a big spring onion) at a restaurant called Faristol.  The calçots are cooked in a hot oven in the ground and then served with Romasco sauce.  Bib required.  I say, if you bib is clean you haven't enjoyed the calçots!! Following the onions a hearty country meal is served.
