The famous town of Baena stands out for the cultivation of the vine and the olive tree, thus offering the opportunity to enjoy the authentic Baena Oil and the Montilla Moriles Vinegar, both with D.O.P. To start eating, ask for a delicious salmorejo or a gazpacho (very similar but with different thickness) and accompany it with beans, almonds or cucumber, very typical varieties of the area. Walk the streets in search of the best tapas, where cheeses, cold meats and crushed olives are some of the most popular.
Taste the local agricultural products, protagonists in a variety of traditional recipes at the time of eating in Baena as the baan jumble, asparagus and garlic, the empedraillo of rice and legumes, or oranges in oil with figs and cod.
But if you are a lover of meat, do not miss the known as mice: skewers of kidneys, loin and pork, which you can accompany with a potato sauce called carnerete.
The most acclaimed fish dish is represented by the beanense cod, that is, with tomato, pepper, onion and olive oil. Accompany all this gastronomic experience with the great D.O. Montilla- Moriles and put the sweetest golden clasp with the must with coscorrones or panetillos del cortijo, of clear Moorish influence.
