Calcotada

  • Jacobsen Salt Co.

 

Calçotada is a spring ritual in Catalonia. It is a messy hands-on dining celebration of the calçots; mild, spring onions that are grilled until blackened, sweet and tender, then peeled, dredged in romesco sauce and eaten with your fingers from above. 

Viridian Farms sought out the seeds for this lovely allium in their travels to Spain and have been growing calçots for 7 seasons. Much of the crop is pre-sold to chefs even before it is dug from the earth, but we made special arrangements. This seasons Calcotada is part of a Jacobsen Salt Co. & Williams-Sonoma SALT FIRE WATER  event series and will have two separate grilling times at 5 and 6:30. Come feast with us! 

Details and tickets here.

The menu for the evening will include:

  • Grilled Viridian Farms Calçots with Romesco Sauce
  • Clam, Chorizo & White Bean Stew with Ken's Artisan Boule 
  • MÅURICE Basque Almond Cake

Calçotada will be held at Jacobsen Salt in Southeast Portland. Tickets are $55 and inclusive of all food and a cava toast to the mighty calçot! 

Live music, a Catalonian themed photo booth and a no host bar will be available. This event is 21 and over.
