Vermut, just the start
Calçots taketime and effort to cook, so before they are ready we start getting in the mood fent el vermut. Translated "doing the vermut", this is the moment to welcome everyone and catch up with them with a drink in your hands.
Vermut is served with a couple of olives, a couple of ice-cubes and a piece of orange. It is accompanied with different savory snacks: chips, olives, berberechos and banderillas. Also few cold cuts are added fuet (porc sausage), chorizo, cheese and Iberico ham. This is just appetizer for the calçots and barbecued meat.
