If you ask a Catalan person which is the typical Catalan food or dish, the first thing that will come to his or her mind will be, undoubtedly, the pan tumaca, bread with tomato, which can also be referred to as “pa amb tomàquet” in Catalan. This is a simple recipe that consists on spreading a raw tomato on toasted bread until it is red and soft.

MUSSELS
stuffed mussels, or Tigres, are one of the most popular tapas in northern Spain. Mussels are finely chopped and mixed with onion, pepper, tomato sauce to form a delicious filling. They are then breaded and lightly fried. This version separates the filling from the béchamel sauce, rather than mixed in with it. Although it takes a bit more time to prepare, the filling has more flavor and the crust is crispier due to two layers of breadcrumbs.
