Discovering Gachas Manchegas

A very special culinary experience in La Mancha

"It was a pleasant visit and a good experience with friends. Another and original way to get to know the products of the region."

Luis M., Madrid

Gachas Manchegas are a typical dish from the region that you absolutely must try. They are prepared from the flour of flat peas (almorta) grown in the Mancha. When consumed, pieces of bread are dipped in the gachas, what reminds of fondue, which is why we call them also "manchego fondue".

During this activity we visit a flour mill, which is operated since 1931 in meanwhile 6th generation. Flat peas are ground still in the traditional way with the help of a stone grinding machine. We get to know the production process of "harina de almorta", look at the preparation of Gachas Manchegas and then taste them onsite.
