Mediterranean gastronomy has in rice some of its star dishes. Whether they are fish or seafood, meat or simply vegetable, all of them have become a point of reference in Catalan cuisine and a classic in the restaurants on the Costa Brava.
There are as many recipes as there are tastes: from the traditional seafood paella, “arròs a banda” (two in one rice) or black rice, to others such as rice with cod and artichokes, rice with snails or with rabbit.
Quality prime material
Choosing a rice of quality is the key to success in any dish. Fortunately, the Empordà has a historical rice tradition which has become the best guarantee for restaurant owners in the area. For example, at Restaurant Can Miquel, all the rice dishes are made with products with IGP (Protected Geographical Identification) from Molí de Pals, used carefully and rigorously to make the maximum use of the unique qualities provided by the terrain and climate of the Empordà.
