Tossa de Mar is an idyllic place that captivates its visitors with its breathtaking sea views, stunning beaches, and historical charm. Besides its natural beauty, this town on the Costa Brava is also renowned for its delicious cuisine, with the traditional dish of "Cim i Tomba" standing out among the rest.

"Cim i Tomba" is a seafood stew that combines authentic and fresh Mediterranean flavors. Local ingredients such as rock fish, seafood, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, and spices are used in its preparation. This emblematic dish is slow-cooked in a casserole with olive oil, allowing the flavors to meld and creating a delightful sauce that will satisfy even the most discerning palates.

The cooking technique employed in "Cim i Tomba" is unique. The name of the dish comes from the words "cim" and "tomba," which refer to the two phases of cooking. First, the ingredients are cooked on high heat to brown them, and then the cooking continues on low heat until everything is well-cooked and a thick sauce has formed. The result is a comforting dish that highlights the flavors of the sea and reflects Tossa de Mar's seafaring tradition.
