Granada province has a unique geography, growing mangoes and avocadoes on the Costa Tropical. The region also has the Sierra Nevada mountain range which includes the Mulhacen. The highest point on the Iberian peninsula with an altitude of 3482m. With all these different altitudes and microclimates Granada province can grow most crops.
Try High altitude wines from the North of Granada or the World Best Olive OIl (from the nearby Subbetica Cordobesa) Another thing we taste is the Alpujarra Cured ham and an award winning goats cheese.
Vegetables such as Broad Beans,courgettes and asparagus are grown just a few miles out of the city on the plains of Granada. During the tour we taste a local dish made following a typical Granada recipe inside a traditional restaurant at the heart of the city.
This foodie experience is not only tapas, it is the culinary story of Granada. To end the route we try the local specialty a sweet cake created for the Pope´s visit in 1897, which is still popular today. Your Food sherpa will also share some urban myths about Spanish food with you during the route.
