Catalan (Català)

Catalan (català) is a Romance language, the national language of Andorra, and a co-official language in the Spanish autonomous communities of the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and Valencia—where it is known as Valencian— and in the city of Alghero in the Italian island of Sardinia. It is also spoken, although with no official recognition, in the autonomous communities of Aragon (in La Franja) and Murcia (in El Carxe) in Spain, and in the historic Roussillon region of southern France, roughly equivalent to the current département of the Pyrénées-Orientales (Northern Catalonia).

Catalan on

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Catalan you may search by any of the following terms:
Andorra Andorran Balearic Balearics Catalaans Catala Catalan Catalana Catalonian Cataluna Catalunya IslandsKatalanische Katalunya Spain Spanish Taal Valencia Valencian Valenciana

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages. The traveller in Catalonia may not be precisely certain which language is in use, and can search using more general terms such as 'Spanish''.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of brains, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Catalan brains' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches, such as 'Spanish' should result in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
