Asturian Food

  Northern Spanish cuisine boasts great variety and is very different to what you will find in the south of Spain  Even within the regions of Cantabria and Asturias you will find differences and specialties  San Sebastian in the Basque Country boasts more mitchelin star restaurants than any where else in Europe. Fabada In a Asturias you will find fantastic dishes like la fabada a rich stew made with white beans, chorizo, morcilla (Spanish black pudding) and tender pieces of meat. The Cantabrian sea also offers a abundance of seafood from calla calamari s to octopus. Cheeses With out doubt one of Asturias most famous products is its cheeses. The region is regarded as producing the best cheeses in Spain. Some of my favorites include queso picon  a strong blue cheese that makes even strong Stilton seem mild. Alternatively the queso cabrales a milder cheese that blends both cow and goats milk is delicious. Cider And the perfect Asturian drink?? Cider of course. The region of Asturias is one of the largest apple producing areas Europe although only a small amount is exported with the majority of the apples which stay going in to the production of cider. Locals pour their cider from high above their head and catch it in the glass below a compulsory thing to try when visiting.
