Its dry hot summers, mild winters and very infrequent rains make it an all year round destination. The perfect climate also generates a rich variety of local produce – which supplies a hearty tapas scene.
A common dish in the Murciano countryside, it is made with the vegetables grown in the region - courgettes are among a chefs favourite vegetable to use. The thinly sliced vegetables are scrambled with eggs. Most often you will find this as an appetizer or in a tapas bar. Though humble, it is delicious.
This Murcian delicacy has become a symbol of regional pride. During the spring, you will find these at all the fairs and festivals. Lemon leaves are coated in a batter, fried in olive oil then dusted with sugar and cinnamon. Take note however, that you are not meant to bite into the leaf! It’s just a tangy way of consuming the batter.
Calasparra rice is native to the Murcia region. Originally grown by its Muslim inhabitants, it has formed fundamental part of the cuisine. Calasparra rice is especially absorbent, making it perfect for spanish dishes like paella.
