Andalucía Food

Andalusian cuisine can be summed up with one of its most precious goods: olive oil. It also stands out for its wide range of recipes and, above all, for the mixture of civilizations and cultures that have been established in the history of this community: Phoenicians, Iberians, Visigoths, Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians.

The Iberian pig is raised in extensive valleys such as the Valley of the Pedroches (Córdoba) or Huelva, giving formidable iberian hams and select pork products.

The vegetable garden in Andalusia is very varied, from the greenhouse crops of Almeria where raf tomatoes, asparagus, peppers, cucumbers… to the tropical crops are located in Motril and Almuñecar and avocados, custard apples, mangos, etc. are harvested annually for the whole world. The beans that are prepared in Jaén, either fried or in oil, are also outstanding. This last product is the most famous worldwide from Andalusia and four provinces that mainly produce it: Jaén, Córdoba, Granada and Seville.

The sea supplies the table with fish and seafood, the coasts of Huelva, Cadiz and Malaga being famous. Andalusia has a long list of quality mentions and designations of origin for products such as: oils, vinegars, hams and wines.

As soon as you wake up in Andalusia you have to take strength with a toast with olive oil, zurrapa de lomo, tomatoes from the garden or with manteca colorá. At mid-morning what better than a fino to open the stomach and make room for a stew or puchero. A peculiarity is that many dishes, despite being originally from one province, can be tasted in others with the same taste and quality. Andalusia, for thousands of tourists who visit it every year, becomes the land of sun and good food.
