Aragon has inherited its rich gastronomy from the different cultures which have passed through the region over the centuries. The great geographical diversity of this region has given rise to top quality products which are as varied as the land's orography. The cuisine is based on popular stews which are different depending on the area where they are prepared. Traditional recipes are currently being modernised but will always maintain their characteristic simplicity and honesty. We can also find an offer of a great variety of fruit, vegetables and pulses, including the thistle and borage which, due to their increasing popularity, are often seen on the menus of top restaurants, haricot beans, onions from Fuentes, asparagus from the banks of the River Ebro and the oils from Lower Aragon. The fruit grown in Aragon is admired throughout the rest of mainland Spain as the peaches with D.O. from Calanda.
