Toledo Gastronomy

Toledo's cuisine, fitting to the character of the town itself, puts you back into long gone times, and the dishes seem to be served out of one of Velazquez's still lifes. Recipes are influenced by the region's long tradition of hunting and cattle-breeding, but show Moorish influences as well.

Quails are some of the most extraordinary pleasures for delicate palates. They are usually served either stuffed, Perdiz Estofado, or together with a particular kind of beans, Perdiz con Pochas.
Very typical are as well lamb, fried or boiled, Cordero Asado or Cuchifrito, and the potato-omelette Tortilla a la Magra.

But there are two products in particular that have made Toledo's cuisine internationally famous: Queso Manchego, a very mature cheese often made of ewe's milk, and marzipan which is produced here in extraordinary quality and exported into many countries.

The wines of the region, D.O.C. La Mancha or Mentrida, are of high reputation as well.
