Lleida’s gastronomy has its own personality. It is mainly based on fruit, snails, barbecued meat, sausages, casseroles and stews. Orchards provide vegetables for dishes whose main ingredients are meat from the farm and, above all, pork.

Lleida's wine (Guarantee of origin Costers del Segre) and olive oil (Guarantee of Origin Les Garrigues) are worldwide recognised top-quality products. When talking about autumn cuisine we must not forget the wild mushrooms from the Lleida regions: saffron milk caps, blue spot knights, grey knights, field mushrooms. Among the desserts and the cakes it is worth to mention the "Cocas de recapte", "panadons" (big pies) of spinach, raisins and pine nuts...and "Granados" almond sweets, bearing the name of Lleida's famous musician.
