The gastronomic proposal of the Petit Comité is always linked to Catalan gastronomic tradition and, consequently, also to the use of local and seasonal products. Therefore, both the menu and the tasting menu, welcome new dishes and replace others so as to enjoy new flavours and textures that can only be pleasured for a short period of time.

Among the new dishes, the seasonal menu features free range chicken cannelloni with seasonal mushrooms, or grilled tuna with fruit and cod salt. Mushrooms go side by side with artichokes joining another proposal such as the deer loin with artichokes, local chanterelles and spring garlic.

Main dishes selected by Nandu Jubany were the ‘Pere Bahí’s dry rice with prawns from Palamós’ and the ‘Sea cucumber with bacon, artichokes and sea urchins’; and from l’Empordà the proposals by Albert Sastregener were ‘Brandada of cod, white asparagus and roasted pepper’ and ‘Carré de Cordero (lamb), humus, black garlic and vegetables’.

The desserts on Nandu Jubany was his ‘Egg Flan’ and on Abert Sastregener was his “ Sotobosque – Chocolate, Tamarind and Hazelnut’, both were the final touches of the event.

On 12th April, the restaurant Petit Comitè will bring together the cuisine of Nandu Jubany with that of Albert Sastregener, from the restaurant Bo.TiC, in the setting of the ‘Sopars Empordanesos a 4 mans’. This spectacular food and wine show, in a Barcelona Restaurant located on the other side of the Empordà, proposes a unique tasting menu, paired with two wine cellars from the most eastern part of Catalonia.
