I'd hazard a guess that the traditional holiday dessert that gets Catalans the most excited is the Sant Joan coca: the summer solstice treat has spurned a variety of recipes based on the original. And without straying too far from that original, you can try coca with candied fruit and marzipan, filled with cream or whipped cream, and adorned with pine nuts, chocolate or even pork scratchings. In any of the trusted bakeries below you can get yourself a coca (or a selection of them) to celebrate the shortest night of the year on June 21, as well as the weekend festivities for Sant Joan on June 23 and 24.
