If you want to know what to eat in Madrigal de las Altas Torres, we encourage you to try its specialties, the patatas revolconas and the morcilla de calabaza. The patatas revolconas (also known as meneás or removidas), are a simple and tasty dish. They are made from mashed potatoes seasoned with a mix of garlic and paprika (generally sweet) and added to crispy torreznos that give a contrast in textures.
The morcilla de calabaza is a cured meat that is tiresome to prepare and can be served in many forms. During hunting season, the pig fat is removed, seasoned with paprika and mixed with onion, pumpkin, rice and various spices. Once cured, it is ideal to eat it hot on village bread, or cold if it is sliced or grilled. Another typical meat is the chorizo de olla. If you like to eat tapas, we dare you to try the torreznos, picadillo and the callos that are typical of this village.
Wash down this culinary experience with a great Vino Rueda or Ribera del Duero, both with D.O. Try the huseos de santo, and the almond, potato or lemon sweets typical of this province or the yemas de Avila (a sweet made with egg yolk and sugar) perfect to eat with coffee.
