In Spanish:

Cáceres es una ciudad orgullosa de su cocina y valora sobre todo sus ingredientes de calidad frescos y locales. Su jamón, vino tinto, queso de cabra y queso de oveja son reconocidos en todo el país. También es famosa por sus guisos, las carnes asadas (cerdo, cordero, ciervo, faisán y perdiz), pasteles y miel.

Algunos platos locales más populares son el “Frite” (guiso de cabrito), “Pestorejo” (morro y oreja de cerdo estofados) y “Migas” (migas de pan frito con ajo y tocino, que se come como desayuno o comida). El pescado tiene un papel inferior en la cocina de Cáceres, sin embargo hay algunos excelentes guidos de bacalao, tencas y truchas con pescado procedente de los ríos Jerte o Pinofranqueado.

Los vinos de Extremadura son generalmente muy buenos y también muy asequibles. El vino típico de la zona es un tinto con cuerpo, un acompañamiento perfecto para un buen plato de delicioso asado. “Pitarra” es un vino local muy conocido y los licores de cereza, mora y castañas también son bebidas populares de producción local.

Los pueblos que rodean Cáceres ofrecen productos locales fantásticos, baratos y frescos. Entre ellos se encuentra la “Torta del Casar” (queso de oveja), pan de higo, castañas, jamón, cordero, aceite de oliva, y “Pimentón de la Vera”.

In English:

Cáceres is a city that is proud of its cuisine and values above all quality, fresh, local ingredients. Its salt-cured ham, red wine, goat cheese and sheep cheese are renowned throughout the country. It is also famous for its stews, roasts (pork, lamb, venison, pheasant and partridge), pastries and honey.

Some popular local dishes are “Frite” (kid stew) and “Pestorejo” (pork snout and ear stew) and “Migas” (fried breadcrumbs with garlic, peppers and bacon, eaten for breakfast or lunch). Fish plays a minor role in Cáceres cuisine, however there are some excellent cod, tench and trout stews using fish drawn from the rivers Jerte or Pinofranqueado.

The wines from Extremadura are generally very good and also quite affordable. A typical local wine is a full-bodied red, a perfect accompaniment to a good hearty roast meat dish. “Pitarra” is a well known local wine and cherry, blackberry and chestnut liquors are also popular locally produced drinks.

The small villages surrounding Cáceres offer fantastic, cheap and fresh local produce that includes “Torta del Casar” (sheep cheese), fig cake, chestnuts, hams, lamb, olive oil, and “Pimentón de la Vera” (paprika).
