It was all about the superbly prepared seafood and traditional regional Asturian dishes back in January when I visited another gem on the Camino del Norte. ⭐️ Casa Gerardo, in Prendes, is 135 years old and the Moran father and son team cooking there now are the fourth and fifth generation of cooks to do so. There is a perfect symbiosis between the traditional and the avant-garde here. Traditional dishes like fabada de Prendes (Asturian bean stew), hake with pilpil sauce and creamy rice pudding sit alongside more contemporary preparations. Dishes of Elvers and cocochas capture the season perfectly. I can’t wait to go back there and would highly recommend you to give it a try once they hopefully reopen.
