GASTRONOMY

Among the typical dishes and gastronomic products of Chaves we highlight: Chaves smoked hamsausage "salpicão", "linguiças" and "alheiras" -, piece of "barrosã" meat, roasted or stewed lamb, "cozido à transmontana""feijoada à transmontana", "milhos" (corn mashed) in a roman style, trout stuffed with the famous Chaves smoked ham, "pastéis de Chaves""folar", rye bread, Trás-os-Montes potatoes, honey, Portuguese cabbage and their cherished wine.

 

Both the smoked ham and the sausages are dried and cured with the smoke from fireplaces, being essential ingredients for the confection of the "Folar de Chaves", culinary speciality, based on soft dough stuffed with pork and other sausages, typical of Easter, which is famous, as the "pastéis de Chaves", a local speciality made of puff pastry with minced meat inside. The most typical fish are the ones of the Tâmega River, barbels, "escalos", "bogas" and trouts, the latter being usually stuffed with smoked ham.

 

All these foods, in conjunction with others that the fertile land offers, allow the development of other dishes of regional cuisine that should be highlighted in several categories:
