Amposta Hosts the Artichoke Festival

By | 4 April, 2022 | 0 comments

The artichoke is one of the healthiest and most nutritional foods there is. A popular ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, it even has its very own festival in Amposta. The port city of Tarragona – perhaps most famous for its rice fields – is set to pay homage to the beloved vegetable on 25 February with a culinary festival in its honour, alongside a whole month of other events.

And the beautiful town of Amposta is gearing up to pay tribute to a staple in local cuisine with a number of events of its own. The artichoke festival officially begins on 25 February at 10am with tickets on sale for just €2 to sample some of the gourmet offerings of 10 local restaurants – Bosc de Ribera, Cor del Delta, El Secret, Els Ullals, Gatsby, L’Estany/Casa de Fusta, La Tancada, Lo Senzill del Petit Cafè, Pastisseria Pous and Temps de Terra – who will serve up their most popular items on the menu that feature the day’s guest of honour – the artichoke. A tasting menu is also available for just €3, which includes a sample of two artichokes, a butifarra and salchicha sausage, as well as bread and aioli sauce. Afterwards, the first Ebro km 0 local food market will be officially opened, featuring a whole host of great produce for sale, including wine tastings and beer tastings, where the emphasis is firmly on locally-grown and locally-sourced food and drink. There’s fun for the whole family in the form of the bike/car track, while the Suc D’Anguila brass band will be in charge of providing the day’s entertainment.

But this is about far more than just one day in the calendar. The festivities run from 19 February until 19 March with thirteen individual food festivals held in Amposta and Poblenou del Delta. Each event involves 10 restaurants serving up menus specially designed to feature artichoke cooked in all different ways to delight even the most demanding gourmets.

At HCC Hotels, we’re joining in the fun of the artichoke festival at our Hotel HCC Montsia. We’re offering our guests a special offer for a double room with breakfast included, plus a special welcome gift, for just €60.30. A great opportunity to enjoy a unique destination where we take our local Mediterranean cuisine very seriously indeed!
