SEVILLE AND ITS NEARBY PRODUCTS

SEVILLE AND ITS NEARBY PRODUCTS

Seville’s cuisine is a natural reflection of the complexity and sophistication of its rich historical legacy. In its cuisine, the city has brought together the traditions of all the peoples who have settled here: Romans, Jews, Muslims, Christians, etc. It is a heritage to which is added the wealth of agricultural and livestock production in the province, its status as an inland city but with a historic river port and a close relationship with the nearby coastline.

 

The province of Seville boasts a marvellous gastronomic heritage, currently well represented by an important agri-food industry, which exports all over the world. A production that is committed to the highest quality and innovation in its procedures, but also to the care of our products and nature.

 

On this route, we propose a tour of several of the establishments in the city that take the best care in selecting their products, focusing on 0 km or local raw materials, which usually always have on their menus good examples of what is produced in our province and in the fish markets of Huelva and Cadiz, very important to understand our cuisine.

 

We add a gastronomic workshop that offers an exclusive experience for small groups and also works with the same philosophy.

 

In case you want to take back in your suitcase some representative product of our province, we recommend two establishments with a wide range of them, which also offer nice terraces where you can taste them.

 

Finally, we advise you on where to buy one of the most representative examples of our gastronomy: convent pastries; where to have breakfast with the classic products that we Sevillians usually eat and also where to enjoy a traditional fried fish (pescaíto frito).

 

SOME OF THE MAIN PRODUCTS OF THE PROVINCE OF SEVILLE

Wine: The cultivation of vines and the production of good wines are found throughout Seville. Specifically, there are three main wine-growing regions in the province of Seville: Aljarafe, Sierra Norte and Guadalquivir-Doñana. It also has an enormous tradition in the production of eau-de-vie and liqueurs.

 

Olive oil : The olive tree, olive oil and olives are closely linked to the history and culture of Seville and its province, and form part of the material and symbolic heritage handed down from generation to generation since ancient times. Nowadays, there is a very important production of extra virgin olive oil, a raw material admired all over the world. Equally important are the olives.  The classic Sevillian table always welcomes the visitor with this delicacy in its many forms: split, crushed or striped, whole, stuffed with anchovies or peppers, etc. They may be gordales, manzanillas, verdiales or other varieties and may be green, black or purple, etc.

 

Rice: Today Seville accounts for around 66% of Europe’s supply of the long-grain rice market. This cereal is grown in the surroundings of the Doñana Natural Park, with all its wealth of flora and fauna.

 

Ibérico: The region of the Sierra Norte de Sevilla is the ideal environment for the breeding of the Iberian pig, as well as for the production and curing of hams and other products derived from it, all of the highest quality.

 

Mantecados and polvorones from Estepa: products with the Protected Geographical Indication seal. Originating in the 16th century, they are the quintessential sweets of our Christmas.

 

Oranges: The bitter orange, which you can find in the city in its millions, and which gives its sweet smell in spring thanks to the orange blossom, is also used in both local and international cuisine. The love of the English for Seville orange marmalade is well known. Equally important is the production of sweet oranges, being one of the main producers in Spain. Almost 800,000 thousand tonnes of oranges, mandarins and lemons a year. But, above all, our best advice is to enjoy the atmosphere, eating in these places is a great way to get to know better our culture and our way of life.

 

Important: Please check the opening hours and days of the establishments prior to your visit, as they are undergoing many alterations due to the current health situation.
