Calçotada at Back Forty West
One of the most enchanting food events I have ever participated in was a Calçotada in the Valls region of Spain just outside of Barcelona. I recreated it here back in ’98 and it’s become an annual event. The Calçotada is my bacchanalian offering to the gods that spring has returned, that scrunched shoulders can relax down our backs. It’s our nod to the Promethean magic of fire and the food it allows us to cook. We grill wintered-over leeks in Catalan fashion over an open fire and then eat them with our hands, dipping them in romesco sauce. Grilled lamb chops, botifarra sausage and white beans follow, along with porrons of rosé and the sounds of Flamenco guitar and song. Ever-memorable. This year, we are hosting the Calçotada on Tuesday May 7th on Prince Street. Don’t miss it.
