Surely you sound French phrase Brillat-Savarin says: "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are". We could adapt the this time and say: "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you where you are".
Who has not gone to any people and try your product has been typical either wine or fish dish? Or who has never seen as a particular cake recipe handed down from generation to generation?
Clearly, what I want to recommend this month is a gastronomic route FemTurisme framed exactly the Girona region of the Forest, we can consider the sweetest region of Catalonia.
This is a circular route that runs for ten different peoples and different bakeries linking to us, in which we will stand and we know their best specialties that we disclosed characteristic features of each population.
A recommended route around for more sugary and sweet tooth in the house!
The Rierencs; Cellerenca specialty
The Cellera de Ter , part of the eastern massif Guilleries is 166 meters from the sea. Although, there is a dry town since its term runs Ter river and the Riera d'Osorno.
The presence of the river Ter Ter CELLERA has influenced the identity of the town, so that in this population there is a typical cookie craft known as rierencs and reminiscent in shape Ter river stones.
This is the first sweet we suggest you to try to make your mouth water.
With a whim ...
Current ... following the Sant Hilari waters, entering the woods of Aabúcies and reaching the township of television, Breda.
A little further up is the municipality of Amer where you can taste the capricis they are the best companion to visit the village.
So are the rocs and ametllats. The former are cookies stones commemorating allowed Amer build the monastery and you can not miss.
Sure we all do that when we hear this name comes automatically in your head an image associated with this population, water. In fact, throughout the term of Sant Hilari there are a hundred medicinal water sources, therefore also called "the town of a hundred sources."
However, from now on we can associate another product with this population, Fonts de Sant Hilari biscuits and cookies Aromes, some sweets that have all of Sant Hilari Sacalm and really, as the name suggests, we will remember the smells of this town.
Also, Sant Hilari Sacalm has been called the capital of Guilleries as it is surrounded by this mountain. In these natural places and lived the legendary outlaw known Catalan "Serrallonga", who worked in Can Tarrés (house located in the municipality of Sant Hilari ).
The next stop to realize is Arbúcies . To get down the road we'll Gi-550. In this municipality as traditional and framed in an idyllic and bucolic can take the typical pa Pessic cake, which has been developed since the nineteenth century. Imagine if it's the same old recipe.
Only 15 minutes from Arbúcies and descending on the foot of Montseny find the municipality of Breda where we can savor the ametllats xerrics and somewhere in the town that we locate and remind us of the known scenarios Catalonia Television series, Ventdelplà.
The xerrics are crunchy biscuits that are named why do xerricar les dents (making noises with his teeth). As for ametllats, these are also a fruit crackers made ??from which the same name, almonds.
Arena and grocery rough stone and Vilobí d'Onyar Riudarenes
As already mentioned, gastronomy shows characteristic features of the region has been developed.
In this case, if we continue down the road we arrived at Gi-552 Riudarenes , a city noted for the presence of estuaries and sand, as the name suggests, and where it is possible to confuse the sorrencs with a few grains of sand (sorra) . These (sorrencs cookies) are made ??from hazelnuts biscuits that try to mimic this element so characteristic of Riudarenes , which can be seen in many parts of the municipality.
In contrast, in Vilobí d'Onyar your cookies mimic stone Crossa volcano. This is a huge volcano that has in its crater the hermitage of Sant Llop.
