The gastronomy of Puigcerdà is clearly influenced by the weather and the high mountain relief, apart from its condition of frontier city with France. In the local restaurants you will find a variety of regional dishes and autochthonous products such as the calf and duck meat, the artisan embutidos (sausage) and all types of vegetables produced in the local vegetable gardens, between which we recommend the famous black turnip of Talltendre. One of the most popular products of the municipality if the pear of Puigcerdà, which has a green and red color and a juicy meat. This is a sweet fruit that grows in a highly variable climate.
Between the most popular recipes we find the Trinxat, a stew made of potato, cabbage and bacon. This dish has its own celebration during the month of February. Finally, regarding desserts, apart from the many specialties from the village we recommend the Coca de la Cerdaña (with fruit covered in sugar and almonds) and the Pa de Neu de la Cerdanya, a soft bread with a crusty crust covered in chopped almonds. Complete this experience with a tapa of the cheese L’Alt de Ugell y la Cerdanya, a product with D.O.P. that will delight you for sure.
