The cuisine of the province is characterized by the high quality of its products. A good example of this is that many of them belong to various “denomination of origin” as the olive oils, wines and ham. Game meat is very frequently found on the Cordoba menus thanks to the widespread hunting. However there are three dishes that are the distinguishing marks of this land; salmorejo, oxtail stew and flamenquin. All with clear tastes and smells of Arab influence.
