Segovia is justifiably proud - some would say even possessive - of what it considers the city's great contribution to Spanish cuisine: roast suckling pig. There's even a special certification for the dish, Marca de Garantia "Cochinillo de Segovia," indicating that the restaurant only uses milk-fed local pigs less than 21 days old that have been processed and cooked in accordance with a strict set of standards. Restaurants without a special oven will fry the piglet, a dish known as cochifrito. As if that were not enough, Segovia is also known for its local lamb, usually offered as chuletons de cordero, or lamb chops, sometimes as chuletillas de lechal, or chops from milk-fed lambs. Two common starters on Segovia menus are sopa castellana - a soup usually made with a chicken broth base to which chopped ham, bread, sweet paprika, and eggs are added - and judiones de La Granja, a dish of white broad beans, chorizo sausage, fresh ham, and onion.
