Gastronomy of Asturias

Gastronomy of Asturias

The Eastern Asturias Region is made up of 13 councils that are recognizable by the variety of its landscape and its rich heritage. Located in different enclaves from each other that give the region a unique wealth.

Its common denominator is, without hesitation, its famous Gastronomy. This provides the territory with an addition to the set of excellences that make its visit recommended at any time of the year.

The coastal area is marked, mainly by the beauty of its beaches and cliffs, and is made up of the Councils from East to West, the Councils of Ribadedeva, Llanes, Ribadesella and Caravia. Sharing a coastline rich in seafood.

The interior, with the mountain, as an outstanding protagonist, is made up of the Councils of Piloña, Ponga, Amieva, Parres, Cangas de Onís, Onís, Cabrales, Peñamellera Alta and Peñamellera Baja. In them their gastronomy is based on meat, both beef and game and trout and salmon that populate its torrential rivers.

Cheeses

But without a doubt, the star product of Asturian gastronomy in this region so diverse in colors, smells and flavors is cheese. The variety of cheeses is endless. Highlighting the Cabrales and Gamonéu cheeses, both with their own designation of origin.

Cheese is a fundamental product in Asturian gastronomy. Since very old it was part of daily life in the rural environment due to surplus milk, therefore its production was abundant.

Also this fertile land is rich in fruits (chestnuts, walnuts or hazelnuts), corn and various legumes, not to mention mushrooms, in the fall season.

And finally, we cannot forget the star product of Asturian Gastronomy. Cider, the true hallmark of Asturias.
And dotting this natural complex, the well-known Asturian Villas are scattered, with Cangas de Onís, Ribadesella, Llanes and Villaviciosa as standard bearers of a wide cultural offer, where medieval, Romanesque and pre-Romanesque Asturian ensembles and the so-called Rock Paradise stand out. ; Caves such as those of Tito Bustillo in Ribadesella, El Buxu in Cangas de Onís or El Pindal in Pimiango (Llanes) are true jewels of Paleolithic Art.

Asturian Gastronomy Dishes

Naming the extensive list of dishes would be endless. Just stand out among the stews, La Fabada and El Pote . Among the fish the Pixín, El Xaragu and La Lubina . Among the meats, El T-bone steak, El Pitu de Caleya and the highly fashionable, Cachopo Asturiano . Among the desserts our renowned Arroz con Leche and Los Frixuelos . And remember to water each dish with a “ Culín ” of Cider.
