Savour nourishing stew at a village restaurant.

Mountain Stew

The Cantabrian dish par excellence.

The main ingredient in this marvellous stew are beans instead of chickpeas. The recipe is completed with cabbage, chorizo, pork rib, black pudding and bacon. This substantial dish gives local farmers back their strength after a long day's work. You will find great stews at almost any catering establishment in Santander. However, nothing quite compares to savouring one in a little village restaurant surrounded by nature. A traditional day out involves a trip to Los Tojos in the Cabuérniga Valley after visiting Bárcena Mayor. A tip: if it's your first time, ask for the stew on its own.
