La Castanyada - a very Catalan tradition

Cultura Culture 25/10/2023

If you like gastronomy, autumn and All Saints is a perfect time to enjoy. The oil season has just begun, the mushrooms are in their maximum splendor, the truffle is showing its nose and it is time to try the new wine. But there is much more that makes autumn and this time a special occasion to enjoy everything that nature and traditions offer us.

The Castanyada is the traditional celebration throughout Catalonia, which takes place on the night of October 31, prior to November 1, the Feast of All Saints. According to tradition, at dinner, at dessert time, roasted chestnuts and panellets are eaten and accompanied by Muscat wine.

But it is common to see the days before and after stalls on the streets, in which chestnuts are roasted on charcoal grills and traditionally wrapped in a paper cone to keep warm. But the gastronomic tradition is complemented by roasted sweet potatoes, candied fruits and “panellets”.

“Panellets” (small bread in Catalan) are small, very sweet pastries, whose main ingredients are sugar and ground almonds. From here, we find flavors such as coconut, lemon and chocolate.

Its origin is located in the 18th century when they were blessed to help the bell ringers ring the bells during the night of October 31 and to face the cold of the night and fatigue.

Numerous popular festivals and recreational activities are also held to celebrate both Castanyada and Halloween.
