Our talented guides are passionate foodies who will give you a local perspective on the city, explaining the ancient culinary traditions of Aragon. They will lead you to some of Zaragoza’s best kept-secrets, hidden foodie spots off the beaten tourist path. Along the way, they will answer any questions you may have and share fascinating local gossip you won’t hear anywhere else!
Tour the Mercado Central to chat with local vendors and learn about typical products of the region: longaniza and chorizo sausages, the dry-cured ham (jamon) of Teruel, guirlaclies (nougats) and the famous Tronchon (a creamy white cheese mentioned by Cervantes in his legendary “Don Quixote"). Sign up for a local cooking workshop to experience first-hand how these local ingredients are used to prepare the most traditional recipes of Zaragoza. These include ternasco (roasted succulent baby lamb), migas (pan-fried breadcrumbs with onion, garlic, chorizo and grapes), ajoarriero (cod with eggs, garlic and potato) and chilindron (roasted chicken coated in a savory sauce of tomato, pepper and onion). And, of course, no visit to Zaragoza is complete without a taste of the local Cariñena wine.
