Charra Cuisine

Salamanca's gastronomy worships the pig. In its meadows are fed the Guijuelo delicious Spanish hams, Salamanca sausage and Ciudad Rodrigo 'farinato'.

These cold meats are also used to fill the typical Salamanca pie, 'hornazo', and to flavor vegetable stews made with the famous Armuña lentils or pedrosillano chickpeas.

Morucha veal or chanfaina (rice with giblets) are other typical dishes are usually accompanied by wines from Sierra de Salamanca or Arribes del Duero.
