Galician Traditional Cuisine and Food
15th Century Delicacies
The Arribada Celebration is also a great food celebration, offering a wide range of handmade and natural products of the highest quality and receiving numerous visitors every year.
Certainly, the traditional sweets that you cannot miss are the famous Ñocos de Pinzón, a sweet similar to the melindres (sweet cake) and with a bit of cinnamon flavour. Other traditional sweets which you can taste are the filloas (crepes), bicas (cakes), almendrados (almond pastries), rosquillas (ring-shaped pastries), cañitas rellenas de crema (custard-filled cannoli), jams, leche frita (fried custard powdered with sugar and cinnamon), bizcochos (sponge cake) or roscones (ring-shaped cake).
The Food Week takes place in Baiona at the same time as the Arribada. During this week, different catering establishments from the area prepare special menus with typical Galician dishes based on traditional and handmade recipes, with the prices varying from 15 to 25 Euros per person
