La Garoinada
La Garoinada

The Garoinada (Sea Urchin Dish) is one of the best-known gastronomic campaigns in the Girona regions and has the longest tradition. It started in 1992 and the main produce is the sea urchin.

Garoines are sea urchins, and their spiny black shell hides five delicious strips of orange-coloured flesh. The period between January and March, when they are full and catching them does not affect their breeding patterns, is when the restaurants of the town of Palafrugell organise the campaign called the garoinada.

This is a gastronomic campaign that uses sea urchins, offered as a starter, as its main product. They are served fresh and open without any kind of sauce or dressing. The second course is different in each edition.
