An Exquisite and Varied Pantry

The region of Castilla-La Mancha, with its 80,000 sq. km and its five provinces (Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, Guadalajara and Toledo) has a partly Mediterranean and partly continental climate. The region is made up predominantly of rolling plains and some mountainous landscapes. It is known for the diversity, exquisiteness and fertility of its pantry, this being the basis of its simple traditional cuisine, which has its own strong character. This is a safe-conduct to travel throughout the world, seducing even the most demanding palates. Anyone who has traveled across the plains in La Mancha will have discovered an enormous dry, arid and harsh area, where the local gastronomy abounds in simple dishes, made up with the most elemental ingredients of the kind that mankind has been using for centuries, such as bread, lamb and goat – all have been around for years in this old land of Castilla.
