By | 23 September, 2018 | 0 comments

The greyer days of autumn -along with the rain, wind, first frosts and yellowing leaves on the ground- are the exact opposite of the rich variety of fresh produce served up at this time of year in the city. It’s the perfect time to head out to a great restaurant and enjoy a pleasant evening amongst friends and family, appreciating a seasonal menu that will delight even the most demanding of palates. Locally-sourced wild mushrooms, plus a wide variety of other fruits and vegetables, as well as game meat, are just some of the exciting culinary choices available during autumn here. All you need to do is find the perfect venue for enjoying everything autumn has to offer, with high-quality food and drink in pleasant and relaxed surroundings.

Raco de Montblanc

The restaurant at Racó del Montblanc in Barcelona is no stranger to outstanding autumn flavours and, all throughout this period, is proud tooffer a range of amazing dishes where autumn produce takes centre stage. Not forgetting the many nods to Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist, the restaurant at the Hotel HCC Montblanc offers guests a wide variety of exciting dishes, giving care and attention given to even the smallest of details. Affordable luxury in the heart of Barcelona where you can enjoy an unforgettable lunch or dinner.

Undoubtedly, locally-sourced mushrooms are some of autumn’s most cherished fare here, as it’s the only time of year when you’ll find some of their more exciting varieties. As a result, in autumn time you can enjoy some surprisingly playful mushroom creations in a wide variety of dishes and garnishes. Boletus, saffron milk caps and thistle mushrooms are just some of the delicious varieties autumn conjures up, leading to some new and exciting culinary creations.

And though it may be the most well-known and appreciated ingredient of the season, autumn isn’t just about mushrooms. Game meat also comes into its own at this time of year. Stews made of wild boar, deer, roe and partridge meat are a real local delicacy. Lots of traditional recipes make up the dishes on offer, many of which fell out of favour for years, before recently making a staggering comeback with a range of more modern twists.

Throughout autumn, Racó del Montblanc also offers a variety of other seasonal produce, such as some very popular fruits that really come into their own towards the end of the year. Quinces, cherimoyas, pomegranates and other fruits, including figs and chestnuts, add a surprising playfulness to a wide variety of exciting desserts and garnishes. These ingredients mean some recipes can lead to genuine explosions of flavour, impressing each and every diner lucky enough to try them. But we can’t forget the citrus fruits that come back with real force at this time of year, adding just a touch of acidity and sweetness for that extra something special.

And, of course, no autumnal menu worth its salt would be complete without a fish dish or two. Sea bass and sea bream come into season at this time of year, the perfect addition to any seasonal kitchen.

We know lots of you will be working up an appetite for some of Barcelona’s most delicious autumnal fare, and you’ll be able to find the very best dishes in town at the Racó del Montblanc. No excuses for not sampling some of this wonderful seasonal produce – just another reason to enjoy Barcelona at this time of year.
