Taste HuelvaHuelva, the paradise of flavours!
Iberian pork holds a place of honour in local cuisine - as they say, "...del cerdo hasta los andares (every part of a pig is used, down to his gait)" . The crown jewel is our Jamón de Huelva (Ham of Huelva) with Denominación de Origen Protegida (Protected Designation of Origin)
Moreover, apart from traditional dishes, you must also try the creative cooking done by our most fabled chefs, who offer subtle dishes and exquisite tapas, prepared from natural ingredients from our land, that satisfy even the most demanding of palates.
An endless variety of flavours, aromas y sensations: a true gastronomic experience that you'll be able to enjoy in the best of companies and in the most beautiful of places. Taste Huelva.
The prized Iberian meat from local pigs, fed during the Montanera period (Iberian pigs are allowed to roam freely and to feed on acorns and wild grass), is the star of many traditional dishes that you can taste in every corner of the sierra. Apart from Huelva ham, you will find other fresh and cured meats fresh, which you can enjoy accompanied by the traditional serrano bread.
This rich mountain cuisine also prides itself on its soups and stews, which use only the best ingredients and are patiently cooked by locals using recipes that contain all the flavour and spark of life of its people.
Mushrooms are an important ingredient in our gastronomy, since our mountains are considered one of the spots with the most abundant production of fungi in Andalucia. Caesar's mushrooms, milk caps and slippery jacks sprout after the autumnal rains, while the prized mushroom par excellence is the "gurumelo" (Amanita ponderosa), which can be found in these unique mountains.
Goat's cheese, rosemary and lavender honey, chestnuts and walnuts, used in stews and in the renowned local pastries, are only some of the wonders that this land has to offer.
A one-of-a-kind gastronomic experience that you cannot miss. Nature, history and unforgettable flavours.
Enjoy the incomparable white Huelva shrimp while feeling the breeze on your skin on any of our innumerable beache.
Savour our rich and varied fish from tuna, sole and grilled or fried plaice, grilled sardines and mackerel, minced, or in a sailor's stew. The cuttlefish stew with beans as well as fried cuttlefish are equally indispensable in the gastronomy of our coast.
This seafaring tradition is also evident in the plethora of canned fish, from wind-dried tuna in salt, to canned mackerel or bullet tuna in olive oil.
The salt from Huelva's salt mines or from Isla Cristina is a natural product that is becoming rarer and rarer, it can be found in the many recipes of this land and underlines the area's strong connection with the sea.
Taste the sea, taste the south, taste Huelva.
