"For the record...Bouillinade is the Catalan equivalent of bouillabaisse. The cuisine of the Perpignan region is obviously Catalan. Catalan cuisine is very rich thanks to its Greek, Arab and Roman influences. Perpignan benefits from its natural assets, fresh fish and excellent local produce such as potatoes from Prades, beans from Ganxet, calçots from Valls, chicken from Prat, clementines from the Ebre, etc. Catalan cuisine is also famous for its health benefits, and is characterised by the use of olive oil as a basic ingredient.
