Food and Drink in Costa Brava

The Costa Brava’s open access to the Mediterranean Sea means that freshly-caught seafood figure prominently on the local menu. Seafood connoisseurs will be in heaven, and a plentiful supply of shellfish, lobster, squid, cuttlefish, tuna and prawns are served up as platters, sashimi, or in a suquet stew.

Catalan cuisine has a surf and turf slant to it, often combining fish and meat in the same dish, and rice is another staple used in local dishes. Top off your meal with a Crema Catalana dessert, a fragranced egg custard similar to the French crème brulée.

The Costa Brava is home to the Emporda wine region, which has been producing wine since Roman times. Grape varieties including Muscat, Chardonnay and Xarel-lo produce flavoursome whites, while Carignan, Grenache, Merlot and Syrah make complex, full-bodied reds. Rosé and sweet wines are also produced in the region. Wine tourism is increasingly popular in the Emporda vineyards in Girona province and a great way to find out more about how the wines are made and what to pair them with.
