From the Paper:

"Galician cuisine can be characterized as simple but hearty. Along the coast, Galician meals are based around seafood. The province is a major producer of shellfish, which figure prominently. Galicians eat mussels, oysters, clams, octopus and gooseneck barnacles. Empanadas are also popular. Vegetables often come from small family plots. Potatoes are among the most common. A common hearty stew is caldo gallego. The region's signature cheese is San Simon, is a mild, smoked cow's milk cheese (Jenkins, 1996). The province has a couple of traditional wine styles. A strong liquor called orujo is made from the residue from wine production. Queimada is made from orujo, lemon peel, sugar and ground coffee (Sierra & Sierra, 2009)."
