This is a variation of the traditional Spanish tortilla, unusual because the omelette is finished in a rich tomato and garlic sauce (called suc in Catalan) in a terra-cotta dish. Once a year, the inhabitants of Ulldemolins, a town in the Priorat?one of the most beautiful wine-growing areas in the world?hold a celebration of the truita amb suc, with demonstrations and tastings. Each cook brings his or her own version of the dish. Classically, the omelette contains spinach and sometimes potato, but other vegetables are often added, too. A mixture of ground nuts and parsley, or picada, gives an authentically Catalan finish to the dish. Serve with a straw-colored, herbaceous white wine from the Priorat.
