Catalan cuisine is a Mediterranean cuisine from Catalonia. It may also refer to the shared cuisine of French Catalonia[1] and Andorra, which has a similar cuisine to the Alt Urgell and Cerdanya comarques, often referred to as "Catalan mountain cuisine"[2]. It is considered a part of Western Mediterranean cuisine.

Some contemporary Catalan authors, such as Josep Pla,[3] Jaume Fàbrega or Eliana Thibaut i Comalada,[4] and others like Colman Andrews[5], have suggested that, besides Catalonia proper, this cuisine takes in the Balearic and Valencian cuisines[6], but this opinion is challenged as politicised,[5] and is not widespread, nor is supported by either the Catalan,[7] Balearic or Valencian government.[8][9] In any case, mutual ties do exist between Catalan gastronomy and other Western Mediterranean gastronomies, such as Balearic cuisine, Valencian cuisine, Southern French cuisine, Aragonese cuisine or Murcian cuisine.
