Gastronomic days Es Niu
Es Niu is a very old dish, of palafrugellense origin, in which, in the beginning, no meat was put, since it was a Lenten recipe. It was made with cod tripe, boiled egg, peixopalo (dried cod) and potato. With time it was enriched: the fishermen added cuttlefish and the cork farmers completed it with game birds and even sausages.
It is a typical dish that the Palafrugell corker gangs used to eat on Mondays in the barracks.
The preparation of this recipe is very long. It lasts about five hours, one for the sofrito and four for stewing the other ingredients. For this reason, normally, it is not found in most restaurant menus and, in any case, it must be ordered in advance.
One of the objectives of this conference, which began in 1998, is, on the one hand, to make Es Niu known to those who have not yet discovered it and, on the other, to make it more accessible to lovers of traditional gastronomy.
