Gastronomy in the Protected Designation of Origin of Valles de Benavente
The cuisine of the area is marked by the resources of the land where water is also important for the abundance of transparent flowing rivers. Fishes are thus a notable element in the cookbook, especially trout, usually fried and marinated.
Roasted lamb in a wood stove is another culinary constant in these lands. And as a part of this area is set in Tierra de Campos, squabs are a major ingredient in the local culinary, stewed and pickled. Birds from hunting, such as quails and partridges, are also prepared with similar recipes. We cannot forget the excellence of the roasted peppers in this area.
