La Rosilla

Gourmet, Cooking Experiences

Enjoying and exploring Andalucian cuisine is a fundamental part of any holiday in this beautiful part of the world, but within Andalucia itself, the dishes prepared are as diverse as the scenery.  From the freshest fish on the coast to hearty rustic dishes of the inland countryside, with homemade recipes passed down from generation to generation.

Traditional, homemade dishes, using home-grown and cured ingredients are one of the delights of Inland Axarquia.  This area to the east of Malaga city stretches along the coastline and high up into the mountains. 

Delicious delights of rich Embutidos (Cured Meats), honey, goats cheeses and meat, olive oil, almonds & dried fruits to name a few.

Grapevines lay over the dry rocky soil, with Moscatel grapes being pressed to make the local sweet & dry Malaga wines. Enjoyed cold and crisp with a slice of aged, cured cheese or meltingly soft Jamon or a ‘copa of warm and sweet, with a slice of almond and orange tart.

Gourmet food festivals are hosted in the rural villages throughout the year, showcasing each ‘pueblos‘ specialty. We celebrate, cherries from Alfarnate, chorizos and salchichas from Colmenar, snails in Rio-Gordo, porra in Antequera, ajoblanco in Cutar, Raisins in Comares the list goes on.

Agriculture and farming are alive and well, olive and almond harvests are still done with traditional methods and families working together to look after their crops.  Tropical fruits of avocados, mangoes, and watermelons along with the Mediterranean vegetables are grown year round in the lower valleys, making use of river waters and shady outlooks.
