Hi there,

We are lucky to heading off for a couple of weeks to my friend Katy’s place in Mallorca for some much needed down time. While I’m away one of our Home Organics’ foodies is going to be at the helm recipewise and you are in for a real treat. Ada Olpu is a Catalan who’s been here in Dublin for many years and she’s agreed to do some traditional Catalan recipes for us. We’ll be kicking off this week with Coca de ceba, a kind of flat bread covered in juicy carmelized onions you might have wondered about in bakeries in Barcelona. It’s a perfect pick me up for that late afternoon slump. Ada is something of a baking whiz so she’s the perfect person to fill you in on how to get it just right.  Next week there’ll be a masterclass in romesco that amazing sauce you only find in Catalunya (as far as I know!) and the week after Ada talks us through the great Catalan classic Escalivada. Enjoy!! x
