Discover the culinary treasures of Sevilleour culinary journey. Today and since always the Andalusian cuisine has a lot of our sea among the most popular recipes we find the cod with tomato- so traditional during Lent-, the wild bluefin tuna caught on the coasts during their migrations and of course the delicious prawns from Huelva that can not miss in a luxury appetizer.
From the land we have a variety of vegetables that add with their flavor and freshness the touch we desire. From our “green sea” that is the interior populated by countless olive trees we have the olive oil that generously waters our recipes with its golden touches, the delicious extra virgin olive oil.
This oil, full of beneficial properties for the organism, is essential in our table. Without going any further, it is one of the ingredients of the star dishes of the region, gazpacho.
Gazpacho that, if it was originally from those porridges and soups that the humblest classes used to eat because it was balanced and cheap, has become an authentic symbol of the victory of simplicity and our traditional cuisine.
Fresh, tasty and perfect dish to take in cold tapas for the climatic conditions that we can live, especially during the summer what most appeals is a good gazpacho. If the original recipe for gazpacho is water, olive oil, salt, peppers and tomato; these can be modified in their proportions or substituted for others to create variations. Ajoblanco with almonds, porra antequerana, and salmorejo cordobés.
A gastronomy full of flavor
After a few starters to whet the appetite and having tasted several tapas, it is time for dessert. Through many of them we can trace the influence of the Andalusian culture – the term used to define that part of the Iberian Peninsula under Muslim rule – through the pestiños, polvorones, rosquitos de vino and the delicious torrijas so traditional during Holy Week.
This path is not complete if it is not with the mention of our wines, among the great denominations of origin that exist in Spain.
Well known are appellations such as Cava, Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Rueda, but here it has a well-deserved place of honor. Sherry, which again tells us about this blend in the way that it is closely related to families of British origin who took these Andalusian wines all over the world.
Perfect to start tasting these wines and not knowing when to finish, like the April fair in Seville.
Because in Seville everything is different! Because we are Andalusian! Because our gastronomy and wines are unique and will conquer you!
