Madrid


Among landscapes of pine and beech trees, rivers, traditions, churches and city walls, you'll find some of the most authentic flavours in the Madrid Region. Its dishes will reveal a great deal about this region, as a place where nature and good food are inextricably entwined.

Come and spend a few days in the Sierra Norte region of Madrid and you can take a culinary tour of its various municipalities through their most traditional recipes as you sample some of the typical fare of the mountains of Madrid. The star products in this delicious cuisine are its locally-grown and market-fresh produce, with robust aromas and hearty flavours. Ingredients picked in family-run vegetable gardens, aromatic herbs like rosemary and thyme, pulses, wild mushrooms and garden greens are just a few of the basic components of this cuisine. But the real local hero is the meat, with a characteristic deep red colour and its own Designation of Origin: beef from the Sierra de Guadarrama. Order it char-grilled or roast, either veal, beef or aged beef, but don't leave without trying it. And don't miss its famous kidney beans either. Did you know there are over 70 different types of beans? We recommend the bean casserole with onion, garlic and ground red pepper, a typical regional dish that you're sure to love. You'll also find a wide range of seasonal products such as wild mushrooms and the variety known as boletus, which are simply irresistible. Is your mouth watering yet? But wait, now come the desserts. A delicious array of homemade cakes, pastries and sweets prepared fresh every day: cheesecake with raspberry jam, apple tart, custard and cream millefeuille, pastries with sugar… the perfect ending to make sure you take away a lingering hint of sweetness.
