A brief history of Madrid Stew (Cocido Madrileño)


Cocido Madrileño is Madrid's signature meal. Even the most demanding monarchs have succumbed to the charms of such a tasty treat. And few people can resist a delicious stew, washed down with a good wine and fresh bread.

Carlos I and his son Felipe II were big fans of the pot and at the time of Felipe III was a very common dish in court. The Bourbons also liked as nutritious delicacy, Fernando VI held it all year except the summer months.
The Madrid version is based on a first course of soup with noodles (also common bread soup), a dish of cooked chickpeas with steamed vegetables (carrots, cabbage, potatoes, turnips, ...) and finally presents the source plate with chopped cooked meat (shank, bacon, sausage, black pudding, ham, ...).
