Boutique Hotel Cortijo El Sarmiento

Food in Andalusia is a treat not to miss

Our breakfast

Typical food in Andalusia can already be tried at breakfast, as it consists of coffee and light and fluffy tostadas – that’s toasted bread, either with grated tomato and olive oil or with jam and butter.

Yummy, but we think a real Boutique Hotel should include a bit more.

That’s why we’ve added to it pretty much everything that comes with a good European breakfast – starting from egg dishes which we prepare as desired, various types of bread, cheese, and hearty cold cuts, to delicious homemade jams and honey from the region. There is a choice of fresh fruit or fruit salad, freshly squeezed fruit juice, various types of muesli, and much more.
In keeping with the season, we use freshly harvested products from our local farmers.

With a Cortijo breakfast, you are well-prepared for your upcoming holiday day …

Food in Andalusia – lovely dishes and great wines

Enjoying a great meal is one of the most delightful experiences in the world – especially when you can relish it together with a glass of fine wine and good company.

And where would there be a better opportunity than with hosts who not only love to cook but who also know wines?

We’re ready to admit – we are epicures, and we understand just how nice it feels to feast to your heart’s content while on holiday. Therefore, we offer you, here at the Cortijo, a lovely selection of culinary delights:
In addition to our rich breakfast with home-made jams and many delicious “pick-me-ups”. If there is enough demand, we will prepare a tempting dinner menu or a tasting of Andalusian delicacies with matching wines from Andalusia.

Wine is bottled poetry

Robert Louis Stevenson

Wine from Andalusia

According to locals food in Andalusia means nothing without a good wine…

Spain offers a variety of wonderful, delicious white wines, rosé wines, red wines, dessert wines and not to forget Cava, the noble Spanish sparkling wine from Catalonia.

Connoisseurs love our variety of wines so let the aromas and delights of Andalusian wines seduce your palate.

Here in Almería, we grow both, red and white wines, and they taste great. But Andalusia also has fine sherries and delicious liqueur wines.

We’re already raving again … but what are words when you can try for yourself how good Spanish wines are, and how with matching dishes they’ll transport you to new culinary heights!

We invite you to wine tastings (Yvonne is a certified wine consultant and sommelier and so you’ll not only taste fine wines but also learn a lot of interesting facts about the art of winemaking),

and – in keeping with the spirit of Spanish tradition – we are having fun at Jamon-Y-Queso-evenings …

Most ingredients of our small and large delicacies come directly from the local farms in the area. Seasonal and freshly harvested, we use them to conjure up the most delicious dishes.

Our Cortijo may be small, but in our kitchen, we bake, braise, toast, cook, stew, and grill extensively and cook up a storm – creativity producing the really palatable.

Let us surprise you!

a meal without wine is called breakfast

… and of course our IHK-certified wine consultant, sommelier and therefore pleasure expert can’t let this happen at our dinners.
