Gastronomy & Crafts
As well as the fertility of the vineyards of the Jerez and Chiclana region, whose fame is international, the Costa de la Luz has an ample and varied gastronomy. By way of example, here is a selection of dishes: "hot garlic", wild artichokes with beans, golden thistle cabbage, cuttlefish with potatoes, hake a la chiclanera, kidneys in sherry and shrimp omelette, not to mention the fried fish and seafood.
As for traditional craftwork, it is worth mentioning the cooperage of the Jerez region, which dates from 1450; the cane, wicker and reedwork and the work in Esparto, not forgetting the ceramics from Conil and furniture from Saúcar.
