Whether you like to cook or not while you are on holiday, a kitchen is a must during your stay. You can go to local markets, in Tarragona you can visit the Mercat Central on the Plaza Corsini, where you can buy delicious fresh food, fish and vegetables. The locals are very hospitable; you can ask the merchants a typical Catalan recipe to experiment in your holiday kitchen.
