Jerez - Eating
Excellent fresh fish and seafood comes from nearby Cádiz, while hearty meat dishes have country flavour. The regional cuisine seems designed to be accompanied by a fino or manzanilla, and not surprisingly sherry is used in many local dishes, such as riñones al Jerez (kidneys braised in sherry), caldereta (stews) and rabo de toro (oxtail). The locals eat late and it’s not unusual to lunch at 15.00 or dine after 22.00. Tapas fill the gaps!
