Wine and dine
Casares, Andalucia is one of the few regions with the good fortune to lie between the sea and the mountains and offers those who visit a particularly varied gastronomy:
- Pringá: a meat and bacon stew with chickpeas.
- Fritá de cabrito: animal from which you get the typical black pudding, which is prepared with onion and is eaten in accompaniment or in a stew.
- Gazpacho Casareño: typical cold soup with that special regional touch.
- Cheese from Sierra Crestellina: made by hand with goat's milk.
- Oven-baked bread with coloured lard
- Fresh fish: caught on the Casares coastline, it is usually accompanied by gazpacho or salad.
- Moruna de sardinas: type of soused fish prepared with lemon and a small amount of pepper
For the sweet-toothed:
- Fried tarts and small Casares biscuits: the latter are coated with honey and chocolate
