Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Catalonia has a unique blend of landscape and nature that is reflected in the gastronomy.
Authentic Catalan cuisine is very diverse, typical of the Mediterranean, with a mixture of flavours from the land and the sea. And although this gastronomy has evolved over the centuries and decades, its essence remains the same today: simplicity, seasonal produce and local foods that form a unique culinary experience for the senses.
The Mas de Torrent hotel is located in the Empordà, a region with an abundance of products from the sea and the land, making it the ideal setting for a gastronomic getaway. That's why we invite you to discover first-hand our sustainable Catalan gastronomy, led by chef Ramón Freixa, with authentic flavours straight from the heart of Catalonia.
What is sustainable gastronomy?
Sustainable gastronomy implies a cooking process that is conscious of its impact on the surroundings and the environment. Some of the actions that define this type of cuisine are:
- A concern for the origin of the food: eco-friendly or km0 sources
- Purchasing local and seasonal products
- Menu planning to minimise waste.
- Water saving
- Minimizing plastic waste
- Prioritising authentic and traditional cuisine
