Food Festivals: Oyster fans unite in Delta de l’Ebre

As we’ve mentioned quite a few times here on EatCatalunya, Catalunya is home to literally hundreds of food festivals taking place every month all over the region. As seafood lovers and a food festival fanatics we are particularly excited about one that is taking place this weekend in the Delta de l’Ebre region.

This Sunday, May 9th, the tiny seaside town of L’Ampolla (Tarragona province, map) will celebrate oysters with Delta Oyster Day, which from the looks of that photo below is quite a big party…and completely focused on eating oysters!

We actually can’t think of a more attractive activity for a summer Sunday afternoon in spring:  sea, sun and mollusks.

From the L’Ampolla website:

Throughout the day, the public attending the festival at the fishing port of L’Ampolla consume 2,500 kilos of Delta oysters accompanied, if they wish, by a glass of cava.

Another feature to be relished is the range of Delta oyster dishes on display. Visitors can savour the most innovative dishes and see how this fruit from the sea is prepared by the efforts of our chefs. There is also live music to liven things up and provide an even more high-spirited atmosphere.

Sign us up!

The fun begins at  1 p.m. at the port of L’Ampolla. If you happen to be in town, this is longish drive from Barcelona but it’s a pretty easy train ride. And if you can’t be here, try some of L’Ampolla’s oyster recipes at home.

Bon profit!
