THIS RECIPE TRANSLATES AS ‘TORTILLA WITH SAUCE’. IN SPAIN, ANYTHING WITH A SAUCE INSTANTLY BECOMES A MAIN MEAL AS YOU NEED BREAD TO SOAK UP THE SAUCE. TRUITA AMB SUC IS A TRADITIONAL PRIORAT DISH — A WAY OF EXTENDING SOME EGGS, BEANS AND GREENS FROM A SNACK TO A MAIN MEAL. THIS IS REAL POVERTY FOOD AND WAS SHOWN TO ME BY ONE OF THE PRIORAT’S BEST CHEFS, TONI BRU FROM EL CELLER DE L’ÀSPIC. ALTHOUGH HE COOKS GREAT MODERN FOOD, HE ALSO CHAMPIONS THE ROOTS OF HIS CUISINE. HE TOOK TIME IN HIS RESTAURANT TO SHOW ME THIS LOCAL CLASSIC, FOR WHICH THERE ARE 16 DIFFERENT RECORDED RECIPES. HIS VERSION MAKES A REALLY GOOD MEAL AND WILL WORK WELL IN THE FAMILY HOME, PERHAPS AS A SUNDAY MEAL ON A RAINY DAY. I’VE SUGGESTED YOU FINISH THE DISH IN A CAZUELA (AN EARTHENWARE BAKING DISH), BUT ANY SIMILAR-SIZED FLAMEPROOF DISH WOULD BE GOOD.
