The Ganxet bean and the Alella Designation of Origin spearhead the exquisite gastronomic mosaic of La Roca del Vallès, arising as two of the star products of the area. The Ganxet bean is a very important crop in the region and it garners a lot of prestige among consumers. It is dry, medium-sized, white and hook-shaped. These beans are especially good with bacon and salads with fresh olive oil, and especially accompanied by another regional specialty: botifarra sausage. Meanwhile, the vineyards that make up the current Alella Designation of Origin, one of the smallest on the peninsula, offer white wines and rosé wines with Grenache, Merlot, Xarel-lo Rosé, Red and Tempranillo grapes, which are widely recognised for their quality.
