Vallès Oriental tomatoes are another gem of local gastronomy. These tomatoes are cultivated in greenhouses and are characterized by their sweet flavor and fleshy texture. They are perfect for eating raw in salads, on tomato bread, or for cooking sauces and stews.

Ventre d’ossos is a typical sausage of the region, made from pork casing filled with minced meat, bacon, and spices. It is grilled or barbecued and served with coca bread or potatoes.

Mato cheese from Caldes is a fresh cheese made from goat or cow’s milk, known for its smooth and creamy flavor. It is perfect to eat on its own, in salads, or as an accompaniment to other dishes.

Lastly, we cannot fail to mention DO Alella wine, a white wine made from pansa blanca grapes, cultivated in the Alella area. This wine is characterized by its fresh and fruity flavor, with floral and herbaceous notes, and it pairs well with fish, seafood, and rice dishes.
