The next installment of our CB Pantry Raid series, in which our walk leaders give a guided tour of the local pantry and discuss the staples that have sustained their communities over the years, features Paula Mourenza, our Barcelona bureau chief, who will be talking all about conservas, or foods preserved in cans and jars. Tune in on Friday, April 24, at 5 p.m. EDT (GMT-4) on Instagram Live.

As Paula previously wrote, in Spain, conservas “are not simply a matter of economic survival or a source of basic nutrition for students, hikers, military recruits and the like. Rather, the tradition of conservas more resembles that of keeping one’s most beautiful jewelry locked safe in a strongbox, to be brought out only on special occasions.” They are currently experiencing a golden age in the country, and one of the best places to experience the great culinary heights of conservas is Entrelatas, the first shop in Barcelona completely dedicated to canned foods. Conservas are also a staple at many of Barcelona’s bodegas, including La Moderna. An important source of conservas are the shellfish catchers in Galicia, which is the top producer of canned seafood in Europe and the second in the world.
