Cochinillo al Fuego, roasted porkling, Chafaina, rice with meat and "Chorizo"-sausage, meat pies like Hornazo andChichas are among the best known recipes.
Among sweets Chochos, with anisette, are outstanding.

Several typical products of the province are appreciated for their high quality: Cured ham from Guijuelo, cheese from Hinojosa del Duero, Alubias, a delicious kind of beans, from La Alberca and almonds, the so-called Almendras de Santa Teresa, from Alba de Tormes.

Roasted goat meat from the mountain range Sierra de Francia is considered a speciality, as Calderillo bejarano, a ragout of meat and potatoes, from Sierra de Bejar. In Ciudad Rodrigo they make a delicious sausage of almost white colour, called Farinato.
