The excellent ingredients produced in the province
form the basis of Palencia's culinary tradition. Among the most
characteristic dishes are "lechazo asado" (roast lamb)
and "pichón estofado" (stewed pigeon). The vegetables
and garden produce of the fertile fields are use to make tasty
vegetable stews. Other specialities of the region are pork products
Saldaña beans and sheep's cheese. To round a meal off,
we recommend you trying the famous biscuits from Aguilar de Campoo,
the sweets from Osorno or "leche frita" (made from milk,
eggs, flour and sugar). Not forgetting to accompany any of these
dishes with the excellent Designation of Origin Cigales wines.
