Calçotadas is a barbecue of Calçots, once they have been prepared the Catalan way, by boiling them, and then roasting the onion on the outermost layer and seasoned with the Romesco sauce (it is a typical Catalan food). These onions are roasted directly on the fire and are eaten with the hands, adding a unique taste for winter food in Barcelona with the Romesco sauce. The Calçotada usually consists of frying the Calçots only on the outermost layer, after boiling them, to leave the inside creamy and soft. Because it is eaten with our hands, the whole process can be a bit messy.
