Cuisine and eating out (The surroundings)

Cuisine and eating out

The region’s cuisine is typically Mediterranean, with a wide variety of ingredients, flavours and aromas.
 
Rice is the basic ingredient and plays a leading role in a wide range of dishes, accompanied by fish and seafood from the Mediterranean, and vegetables and fruit from local orchards. Pulses, pork and game are other local delicacies. Different types of fish are an excellent choice at lunchtime, whether they are cooked in salt or baked (good for gilthead bream, sea bass, grey mullet), fried (whitebait is best) and salted (tuna, grey mullet roes and marinated tuna belly with tender young broad beans).
