Where to try the best monas and Valencian dishes for Easter Week

It’s true that during Holy Week and Easter we have to do some fasting and abstinence, we know that. Both the more religious and the rest of us mortals are aware of this because the dreaded moment of the first swimsuit-bikini is knocking at the door. However, these holidays are the most gastronomic of the year, at least in Valencia. Here, Easter tastes like panquemao, mona, sultana and walnut cakes, Easter sausage, cod fritters, titaina pepito, stew, Lent cod and torrijas (French toast). Or does it? And how can you resist?

Well, since it’s impossible, go big and enjoy, you’ve earned it. We have the list of where you can buy the best Easter sweets, according to the competition organised every year by the Guild of Bakers and Confectioners of Valencia, and also some exquisite proposals of traditional Easter recipes and the restaurants where you have to go to try them. Baby broad beans with baby squid, titaina, sardines, conger eel Suquet, cuttlefish with onion… the list is long, there are the most traditional ones and some that will surprise you. Enter this post and take note.
