Local gastronomy at Christmas – Savour Málaga at Christmas time
You can really savour Christmas in Málaga by taking a good bite of the most traditional sweets, seasonal products and Christmas menus created especially for gatherings with family, friends and office colleagues.
These days there is no shortage of classic dishes such as monkfish soup, baked suckling goat or stuffed squid in sauce. Of course, as a city with a seafood identity, seafood is the main dish at any home or restaurant in the capital, with special attention to prawns and clams from the Malaga fish market.
For dessert, there are endless options. The borrachuelos, a 100% Málaga recipe, accompany turrones (nougats), pestiños (honey fritters) and polvorones (shortbread cookies) in the cupboard of those with a sweet tooth. And for true fans of hot chocolate, what better ally than a portion of tejeringos (fritters), the ABC of Malaga churros.
And if we are talking about roscón (ring-shaped cake) de Reyes -a must to say goodbye to this time of the year- it is not the only star on this date. Although very different, the roscones de vino, doughnuts covered in sugar and with the essence of the sweet wine of the land, are a staple in bakeries and grocery stores throughout the capital.
