Let’s open your holiday home’s pantry to seduce you with Mont-roig Miami’s best flavours and aromas
Since time immemorial, the Camp de Tarragona plains have been a fertile land where man has been able to get the best results. Currently, this ancestral agriculture offers us typical Mediterranean products such as olive oil, calçot and carob powder. The climate, of gentle temperatures and marked by mistral, and the soil, rich in nutrients, are key to giving us products recognised for their high quality.
GOLDEN ELIXIROlive oil is an excellent Mediterranean product, which is also true of Mont-roig del Camp. Extra virgin olive oil is made with “arbequina” olives collected manually and directly from the fields of the municipality. It is natural oil, obtained in the first mechanical pressing, which does not modify its composition and, therefore, this oil is of extraordinary quality due to its low acidity, good taste and magnificent flavours. This oil is produced under the regulations of the Siurana Protected Designation of Origin.

CAROB POWDER AND “MONT-ROGETES
The carob, the carob tree fruit, is used primarily as “powder”, made from its toasted pulp. For its sweet taste, it is particularly suited to pastry and as a substitute for cocoa powder or chocolate, and it is also helpful in savoury dishes.
The carob flour is a food product with numerous properties and benefits for our health. It is low in fats and calories. It contains natural sugars. It does not contain stimulants. It is a source of proteins, carbohydrates, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, pectin and vitamins. It is rich in fibre, laxative, bactericidal and protects the intestinal mucosa. It is antioxidant and reduces cholesterol. Carob powder also offers opportunities for celiac nutrition since it does not contain gluten.
“Mont-rogetes” are typical local cookies, elaborated with an indigenous and distinctive ingredient: the carob powder. You can buy them at the following establishments in Mont-roig: Forn Juncosa, Agrobotiga de Mont-roig and Mas Miró.
The characteristic carob flavour, along with the rest of the ingredients, make these cookies a unique, sweet and healthy product at the same time.
