The 1st of November is celebrated in Catalonia as the day of ‘Tots Sants’ (All Saints Day), a festivity where families gather to honour the memory of those who have passed away but also a tradition that comes with its own seasonal food. Bakeries and cake shops from all over Catalonia work uninterruptedly to produce enormous amounts of one of the most valued sweets in Catalonia in just a few days: the panellets. This small dessert is presented in a wide range of shapes and colours. However, as simple as it may look, since its birth the panellet has gone through a process of refinement that reflects Catalonia’s own cultural heritage.
