Catalan Food: White Sausages and Spring BBQs

Catalan Food: White Sausages and Spring BBQs [enlarge]

This boiled white sausage ristra I captured with my camera a long time ago but now that Spring is coming and people in Catalonia tend to set out for countryside barbecues, it looks relevant. The sausages or butifarras in this story were cooked during a matanza (pig slaughter) that took place in Lleida, one of Catalonia's provinces. Some more pictures and comments about traditional Catalan cuisine were published here in the past: Blood Sausage and Catalan Sausage

  4. Esta é uma daquelas fotografias de encher o nossos olhos...

    Assim sim, como cá em Portugal, uns enchidos caseiros feitos também a partir do porco caseiro, cá em muitas regiões ainda temos essas tradições da matança do porco.

  5. It looks delicious, although I don't eat meat and sausages.
