We continue our gastronomic journey visiting different places in the world and learning about their gastronomy and flavours.
This time we stay in our country to learn a little more about the gastronomic culture of Galicia.
Galicia is located in the northwest corner of Spain, just above Portugal, and has its own customs, culture, food and even language.
Galicia has much in common with other Celtic lands such as Brittany, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. The Galicians even have their own local bagpipes, which they play on special occasions, such as festivals.
Bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Cantabrian Sea, it is one of Spain’s main fishing regions and many of its most famous dishes are based on fish or seafood.
Today we have been able to taste:
- Mackerel salad
- Galician pie
- Galician hake fillet with roast potatoes
- Fruit buffet
