You can’t travel to Galicia without being seduced by its cuisine. Galicia and gastronomy are two words that can’t be dissociated; our rich and varied culinary tradition lasts over time and is one of the main attractions of our land. Gastronomy is omnipresent in Galician’s lives and as some say we are eating and thinking about eating. And we don’t mind sharing our finest delicacies and our recipes with whoever decides to take interest in it.
Galicia is one of the most prolific regions in what gastronomic festivals is concerned which is not surprising because of the great variety and quality of its products. Seafood, bread, meat... hundreds of products that take part in the daily life of Galician people and traditions and customs that pass on from generation to generation.
At present day bread is still baked in a traditional way in many villages of the interior of Galicia and many families continue to prepare the typical sweets and desserts of carnival (“entroido”) such as the “filloas” and “orellas”. The family gatherings around the table are common and there’s no need for excuses or specific celebration to happen.
