In the capital of the Corneja Valley, the Castilian cuisine enjoys a fusion with Extrmaduran and Salamancan cuisine. So, if you are thinking about what to eat in Piedrahita, you should know that dishes like the patatas revolconas are combined with the sopas de vino and the sopa de cachuela.
The local cuisine is based on meat products like Avilan beef, pork –especially the suckling pig- and game meat. The torreznos, chichas, calderetas, migas de pastor and morcilla de calabaza are also some of the dishes that stand out. These dishes are perfect for regaining strength after visiting this historic village, and former residence of the Dukes of Alba, Goya and Jovellanos.
Because of its proximity to El Barco de Avila, an area with a variety of Judías de El Barco with I.G.P., we find typical dishes like the judías con perdiz. During autumn, the multitude of dishes with mushrooms as the main component surprised us. In Piedrahita, pastries are also popular, especially the buñuelos, floretas, turrillos, huesos de santo, leche frita, mantecados and perrunillas.
