Girona's cuisine is rich and varied. Dishes as original
as goose with pears or the many sea and mountain specialities
(that combine fish and meat) are the result of the plentiful,
local produce, the abundance of fresh fish, seafood and good meat,
the great wild mushrooms that can be picked throughout the year,
the fruits that compose many sauces and, in short, of the combination
of all these great ingredients.
Girona and particularly the region of L´Empordá, is famous for its cuisine. The local organic farms yield tomatoes, aubergines, onions, courgettes and peppers of excellent quality that constitute the essential elements of many dishes.
