La Majada Palentina
Vegetables, meat, fish and sweets
The secret of its quality is its area of production: northern Palencia.
MUSHROOMS OF PALENCIA
Palencia is a privileged province, since it has a natural production of mushrooms due to the wide range of its ecosystems and the diversity of species.
Undoubtely, it is the most important product of the gastronomy in Palencia.
BEEF MEAT OF CERVERA
Exceptional meat of Cervera and the mountains of Palencia. Its quality and security come, among other characteristics, from an early age of slaughter.
DELICATESSEN OF PALENCIA
Home-made traditional products. We find a small factory that stands out for its quality in Santibáñez de la Peña: Casa Tubero.
BLACK PUDDING FROM CORNÓN DE LA PEÑA
There is a small factory in Cornón de la Peña that offers delicious black puddings, prepared with genuine recipes.
There are many hives in this area that give dark honey, heather honey. Each village has at least, one apiary and, in some cases, there are itinerant companies that leave their hives during the whole year. You can buy honey either in specialised shops or in plenty of fairs and markets in the region of Palencia.
SOCORRITOS OF CERVERA
Puff pastry. Nowadays they are produced in oval shape and covered with chocolate by the factory UKO in Cervera de Pisuerga.
You can obtain the best trouts of the province in the Carrion River System, from the reservoir of Camporredondo to Saldaña.
ROE DEER AND WILD BOAR
This bushmeat is abundant in this area. In the hunting periods, finding its stews in the restaurants of the mountains of Palencia isn't uncommon.
They use to eat them in Carnival and they are fried masses, similar to the `churros´, and dusted with sugar. Delicious.
