RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Traditions should not just be protected and respected but also have to be handed down.
For this reason the Al Tuguri restaurant has decided to post a recipe each month from the actual house
menu, allowing you to replicate the dish at home. In many cases it will be a traditional Mediterranean
recipe, Catalan in particular, while at other times it will be a rediscovery of forgotten traditions
from the past. But all of them will be chosen from the point of view of ease of implementation and
availability of fresh ingredients from the market, because what is fresh and in season is vital to a
healthy dietary balance. Centuries of progressive adaptation to the environment, in the history of our
evolution, have produced that the substances indispensable to our organism are those the nature offers
in its seasonal cycles. Respecting these cycles in the choice of ingredients is therefore central to
obtain the best results from the organoleptic point of view.
