What you know as Halloween is for us catalans “La castanyada” which is a beautiful tradition that involves a lot of chestnuts and “panellets” (little sweet bites we made out of pine nuts, sugar, sweet potato…) better google it to get an instant image because I didn’t made them this year. If you ever visit Catalonia during All Saints and get the chance to try “panellets” do it and order “muscatel” a sweet wine that works perfectly with them.

Lo que conocéis como Halloween es para nosotros, los catalanes “La castanyada” una tradición preciosa que consiste en comer muchísimas castañas y “panellets” (unas bolitas dulces que se hacen con piñones, azúcar, boniato…) es mejor que lo busquéis en google para haceros una idea ya que no he preparado ningunos este año. Si alguna vez vais a Catalunya durante Tots Sants y probáis los panellets pedid moscatel para acompañar (un vino dulce perfecto para postres).
