The restaurant association Tàrraco a Taula, created in 1997, organises the Tàrraco a Taula gastronomic days, which aim to offer a contemporary overview of the cuisine of Ancient Rome.
During the days of Tàrraco Viva, Tarragona’s Roman festival, the kitchens in most of the city’s restaurants are transformed to relive the flavours and aromas of Roman culture.
The Tàrraco a Taula restaurateurs and suppliers go to great lengths when choosing the raw materials. Proximity is the key to everything, Km 0 cuisine with seasonal products. Behind each tasting menu and every dish there are many hours of study carried out by some restaurateurs who recreate ancient Roman cuisine with authentic passion.
In addition to the restaurants, other local establishments that have taken part in the last few editions include the Velvet MGL Patisserie, with its interpretation of sweet dishes; wineries making natural wines; Rositvm brewery (Tarragona’s Roman beer), and other local producers such as Forn Andreu, which has recovered the recipe for Roman bread.
You can find information on the twenty-second edition of Tàrraco a Taula in the Tàrraco Viva programme:
The Convivium, the buffet dinner that kicks off this gastronomic event, will be held in the Seminary on 30 April 2019.
