TYPICAL PRODUCTS


Typical and unique products
The gastronomy of Lleida is a homage to all that is good about the Mediterranean. Since time immemorial, our ancestors – who include the Romans - have known how to conserve and cultivate the art of gastronomy. Snails cooked in a casserole, baked on a tray or "a la brutesca" (cooked with burnt straw), "girella" (cured lamb sausage), IGP certified quality veal from the Pyrenees, cheese and butter from El Cadí, Costers del Segre DO wine, "coca de recapte" (a savoury pizza-like dish), "cassola de tros" (rural casserole), extra virgin olive oil from Les Garrigues, fruit from the Lleida plain, the killing of the pig and so many other specialities all help to provide a snapshot of the current gastronomy of Lleida. We would therefore like to invite you to come and enjoy the products of this territory which has been slowly and painstakingly shaped by the hand of man, from the Pyrenees to the Lands of Lleida.
