Many years ago I worked with a Spanish formworking crew which included 2 Catalans, their lunch usually consisted of a slab of bread, some sausage meat with a round of olives and a can of beer to wash it all down. Cutlery was limited to a sharp knife.

Interestingly the Catalans would not sit with the Spanish during lunch..
