Hi Jason. Welcome back.
I may have a friend going to Catalonia in the spring that I'm trying to talk into bringing back eggs.
Penedesenca are from the area of Spain known as Penedes.
Empordanesa are from the area of Spain know as Emporda.
Emporda is the easternmost county of Catalonia. Penedes is along the Mediterranean and about center in Catalonia.
The autonomous region of Spain called Catalonia is where these breeds are from.
Alt de Penedes is a county in Catalonia. The capitol is Villafranca del Penedes. That is the site of the annual Fira del Gall (fair of the rooster). This is the first wine region of Europe. Fira del Gall is a foodie festival held the last weekend before Christmas. The star of the show is the Black Penedesenca rooster, deemed organoleptically unique imparting a flavor to the meat unrivaled in other breeds. People pay the equivalent of $50 for a rooster on the hoof to take home for their Christmas dinner.
yeah I have been watching there Facebook posts. it would be nice to get some out here for sure. I would love to see the Blonde Empordanesa out here as well . we need imports of all 4 Penedesenca varieties as well as White Empordanesa badly
