The cuisine of the Extremadura dehesa
The cuisine on offer of the Parador de Zafra invites you to discover the authentic cuisine of Extremadura, classic Badajoz dishes made with rural products such as wild asparagus, thistles, desert truffles and mushrooms; not to mention the prized products extracted from the Iberian pig, such as sausages and acorn-fed hams.
