Taste of Granada Food Tour
On our TASTE OF GRANADA FOOD TOUR discover some of the local cheeses, wines and typical recipes. Try one of the local desserts, the Pionono. Known to have been created for the visit of the 9th Pope Pius in 1854. It seems that the origins of this recipe seem to actually date back to the 10th century, at the time of Al-Andalus. Coinciding with the beginnings of the Alhambra palace in the city, this period was a time of change in society and for the cuisine too. Arab sweets are typically made with honey and cinnamon. The culinary history of Granada is dense and varied with Sephardic, Berber, Nasrid and even roman influences.
Learn about how Ham Is cured in the Alpujarra mountain villages south of Granada. These remote villages were established in 15th century by Berber tribes leaving Granada. These locations are perfect due to their altitude. Fresh Sierra Nevada air dries out ham with low humidity, creating an artisan product made in Granada.
Ivan our expert in ham slicing will guide us through three different hams. Tasting two from Granada and another one for another region of Andalusia, learn the difference between the quality of Jamon Serrano and Iberico.
At Andalucía Delicatessen we taste different products from small producers of artisan food. Local cheeses, chocolate made in the alpujarra from locally sourced produce. A carefully created wine and liqueur selection, even hot sauces from the Sierra Nevada itself. This store is located right in the city centre and has a curated collection of items produced in Granada province. See the best selection with us on this route.
See the oldest commercial streets in Granada and imagine how the market was in medieval Granada. In fact on our tour we visit one of the oldest shop fittings in the whole of Spain. While finding out about the secrets of a healthy Mediterranean diet, trying dried fruits and nuts Rafael shows us his quaint little store in business since 1850.No route in Granada would be complete wihout
