WHAT IS OUR DELICIOUS FOOD BASKET?

Castellón and its region are a food destination par excellence. Top producers and local providers will bring you the best quality products. This is farming land and you’ll soon notice the benefits when you’re tasting Castellón’s food.

slow food movement in spain

Castellón is well-known around by its gastronomy and local food, especially by its oranges and other vegetables and fruits, olive oil, wines, cheese, home-made breads and rosquilletes, fresh black truffle, fish, seafood and pork products as for example the spicy sausages (llonganissa seca and botifarra).

The paella cooked in a firewood is our most famous dish, but we also have many more delicious meals that are worth highlighting: arròs al forn (rice in the oven), arròs a banda (seafood rice),  or arròs negre (its name received due to the use of squid black ink to cook it). Also very well-known are the traditional tombets, produced using meat as a base, and accompanied by mountain snails (very traditional and tasty), mushrooms (abundant in our pinewoods) and vegetables.

Our basket approaches our local succulent and tasty produce from our small local producers directly to you.
