Andorran cuisine is sure to give you a taste of the aromas and flavours of the mountains. Try seasonal products that can only be sampled at certain times of the year, such as wild mushrooms, winter vegetables, charcuterie, etc.

But first of all, here are some of the most traditional Andorran dishes:

Escudella is a light pork stew with seasonal vegetables. A traditional dish typically served during winter and at popular events. At Christmas, you can try the dish with a traditional type of pasta, called sopa de galets or sopa grossa.

Trinxat de montanya is a typical Pyrenees dish made with winter cabbage, potatoes, garlic and tocino.

Andorran cannelloni are a variant of the Catalan recipe featuring a mix of minced lamb, pork and chicken inside pasta rolls and served with bechamel sauce.

Game dishes such as jugged hare or wild boar stewed in red wine are popular at the beginning of the hunting season and are typically served with vegetables and wild mushrooms. With the onset of the fishing season, you can sample pan-fried trout with almonds and cured ham known as Trucha a la Andorrana.

Cod used to be eaten as a main course like herring or eel, types of fish that reached mountain areas thanks to salting techniques. Nowadays you can try Andorra's most traditional cod dish, cod au gratin with aioli (garlic and olive oil) sauce.
