At our meeting with Beatrice & Alvaro, the owners of our AirB&B, they jotted down for us 3 traditional dishes of Cuenca for us to try. Regional dishes are characterized by its rural origins. These dishes mainly included lamb, pork and hare. The first three are exotic and even a bit strange in looks and taste.
Zarajos - main ingredient, lamb tripe.
Morteruelo - paté made of hare, rabbit, partridge, hen, ham & liver
Ajoarriero - a puree prepared with potato, cod, olive oil and garlic
These are but a few of the meals we enjoyed:
MEAL A - a la carte
Shrimps baked in garlic & olive oil
Assortment of grilled meat - green pepper was exquisite
MEAL B - 5 course meal
Trio on a tray including goat cheese with game, fois gras on crust, white bean soup with chicken
