A Land with such an important agricultural tradition is certain to have a first-rate gastronomic culture. The asparagus and “Piquillo Peppers” from Lodosa, unique products with their own Denomination of Origin, are famous both in Spain and all over the world and form a part of the most original gastronomic proposals.
The sublime vegetable dishes, made with artichokes, borage and thistle, are not to be missed. The pulses and in particular the white haricot and red kidney beans are an especially important dish.
Two typical dishes that are typical of Navarra are cooked in a local style: lamb stew and “ajoarriero”. However, the most traditional dish is probably “gorrín” (roast suckling pig).
Hunting and fishing – manly trout, partridge and pigeon – also provide a basis for traditional dishes, which can also be accompanied by excellent mushrooms depending on the season.
