Tour of the popular gastronomy of the inland towns of the North Costa Blanca: an exquisite surprise for the palate

The Costa Blanca is much more than sun and beach. If you are thinking of buying a home on the Costa Blanca, you will be surprised by its interesting culture that reflects the diversity and richness of this land.

The inland towns, in addition to their indisputable charm, are characterized by their exquisite gastronomy . Do you like traditional flavors and recipes cooked with freshly harvested products from the garden? Then you will love tasting these unique and delicious stews. We invite you to discover the traditional dishes of such interesting towns as Muro de Alcoy, Ontinyent, Cocentaina...

We begin our tour in Muro de Alcoy, a town with a great cultural and natural heritage, where its mountain cuisine stands out, based on the use of local resources. Here you can try hot and hearty dishes, typical of winter, such as:

  • blat picat , a stew of wheat, meat and vegetables.
  • arrós al forn , baked rice with sausages and chickpeas.

Among its wide variety of desserts, the Codonyat stands out, a sweet made with quinces that can be accompanied by the popular herbero , an aromatic herb liqueur.

We continue our way to Ontinyent, a city with a long history and great monumental wealth, where typical dishes from the Vall d'Albaida region are made, such as:

  • Arròs with fesols and naps : dry rice with meat, beans and turnips.
  • Onion sausages , typical Ontinyent sausages made by hand.
  • The coca de trossos: coca with mushrooms, bacon, artichokes, loin, sausage...
  • Sweet potato pastries : very popular artisanal sweets.

We finish our tour in Cocentaina, a medieval town with an important historical and artistic legacy, where the famous Fira de Tots Sants is held every year, a century-old fair that brings together thousands of visitors. Here you can taste:

  • the pericana , a salad of dried peppers and salted fish,
  • la olleta , a stew of beans, potatoes, chard and meat.
  • The broad bean paella : rice with chicken, rabbit, artichokes and broad beans

This is just a small sample of the typical dishes of the inland towns of the Northern Costa Blanca: spoon dishes, rice, liqueurs and traditional sweets that are passed down from generation to generation.
