Due to a terrain in which virtually nothing edible grows – the country is viciously inhospitable in that regard – Andorran Cuisine is dependent upon all of its foodstuffs being imported.
Andorran food is generally the same as Catalan, with strong French and Italian influences.
Potatoes and some vegetables, pastas and sauces, are typically served at meals.
Meats are also an important part of Andorran Cuisine, and includes wild game, fish, pork, poultry, and lamb.
Specialty Andorran cuisine dishes include such delightful dishes as bacon cooked with potatoes and cabbage (called “Trinxat“), tender and delicious Dandelion Salads, and “Formatge de Tupi” – a cheese, fermented with brandy and garlic, and rabbit cooked in tomato sauce, a delightful entree called “Cunillo“.
We will be publishing all of those wonderful recipes on pages parented by this page, so come back soon and often.
