The excellent ingredients produced in the
province form the basis of Palencia's culinary tradition. Among
the most characteristic dishes are "lechazo asado" (roast
lamb) and "pichón estofado" (stewed pigeon).
The vegetables and garden produce of the fertile fields are use
to make tasty vegetable stews. Other specialities of the region
are pork products Saldaña beans and sheep's cheese. To
round a meal off, we recommend you trying the famous biscuits
from Aguilar de Campoo, the sweets from Osorno or "leche
frita" (made from milk, eggs, flour and sugar). Not forgetting
to accompany any of these dishes with the excellent Designation
of Origin Cigales wines.
