Gastronomy in Seville province

The charm of Sevillian gastronomy lies in the simplicity of the preparation of the dishes, the quality of the products and the aroma of the spices. Typical dishes are gazpacho, fried fish, eggs "a la flamenca", Andalusian stew and oxtail.

Most typical of Sevillian gastronomy, however, are the tapas, small dishes eaten between bar visits. These include shad roe (with mayonnaise or vinaigrette), pinchos morunos (grilled meat skewers), pavías de pescado (breaded cod pieces), snails and fantastic olives.

The desserts are heavily inspired by Muslim cuisine. These include torrijas de Semana Santa (Easter cakes), yemas de San Leandro, a sweet made with sugar and egg yolks, and polvorones, mantecados and alfajores, made in Estepa and eaten throughout the country at Christmas.
