So the New Year has been seen in. The Reis have come and gone. The Christmas tree dismantled, the decorations down and stored and the Sales are in full swing and I guess for some the January Blues have set in. Well, we at La Rectoria can suggest something of an antidote. Santa Pau’s Fira del Fesols….Sunday 19 January.

These majestic little beans are so delicious, tasty and succulent and to get into the mood for this most hearty of food fairs we will be having a Fesol filled weekend here at La Rectoria. Friday 17 January the main course for dinner will be ‘Mar i Montanya’ of Bream (Orada) served on a bed of Fesols de Santa Pau, squid and chorizo and on Saturday 18 January we go west for ‘Boston Baked Beans’ (Santa Pau of course) served with tenderloin of pork.

So come and enjoy our bean filled weekend and spend some time in the beautiful village of Santa Pau.
