The Mediterranean diet is in fashion. Basic products such as fresh vegetables and pulses, fruit, fish and virgin olive oil have made Andalusia´s cuisine a major attraction.
The cuisine in Andalusia focuses on fresh, local ingredients, with fish dishes available in coastal provinces and the finest meat dishes inland. A huge variety of fruit is to be found throughout. Perhaps the only difference is the personal touch that each town and village gives to its typical dishes.
The gastronomy is a faithful reflection of its history, packed with aromas, flavours and colours . It is a highly varied cuisine and its traditional products make it different and delicious.
The gastronomy of Costa del Sol owes much to the Moorish cuisine of Al-Andalus. Its refinement came to transform many customs.
Sotogrande, La Duquesa, Estepona and Marbella are home to several Michelin Star Restaurants. The city of Benahavis, for instance, is synonymous of food. It has the highest concentration of high class restaurants in the region and draws visitors by the thousands who come simply to savour the cuisine.
