Visit the Foundation Alicia

The Black Pea

Gastronomy

This study was to uncover the origins of the Black Pea, the crop environment, treatment protocols (cooking, soaking, etc ...), new culinary creations with different textures and uses, and the need to give it the recognition it deserves as the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication ) and POD (Protected Ori...

Rice Festival

Meal for the Poor

Festivities

080400-2410680.jpgRice festival of Bagà or meal for the poor.

For over seven hundred years, Bagà has prepared the so-called meal for the poor (witch would originally be cooked on Carnival Sunday).

On the arcaded aquare of Bagà, 250 kilos of rice, vegetables,seafood and meat, are coocked in a skillet of 3 meters in diameter, which makes a wonderful rice dish for 2000 people.

The Cerdà Dance also takes place on the square during the day, a tradition that has always accompanied the rice festival. In recent years it is also usual to find a display of Berguedà handicrafts and atisanal products.
