Spain: Toledo, Caceres, Segovia...what and where to at next week

Nailing down last minute plans for these cities. We have one lunch booked at Hostal Cardenal in Toledo, would like options for the other meals. Worth going to parador for drink and dinner on the second night?

Spending two nights in Caceres (parador); probably will not visit Atrio as we want to emphasize regional fare rather than contemporary Spanish. A huge mistake to miss this Michelin-starred place??
In Segovia, where we have only one dinner, I cannot decide between Candido (too tourist-central?); Jose Maria; or Duque. We will be having lamb in Sepulveda (Tinin) and in Pedraza (El Yantar) so perhaps Segovia should be suckling pig/La Granja beans night. Where and what else to eat there?

I will be so grateful for any and all advice on eating/food/wine for these areas. I know the basics: partridge in Toledo, etc...but how...stewed, escabeche, (do I really need to try this?) what else... Any tapas to seek out in Toledo/Caceres/Segovia?

Planning on lashings of jamon Iberico in Extremadura and will hunt for torta del Casar and La Serena cheeses there as well. Tins of pimenton de la Vera/canned tuna/goodness knows what else will weigh down suitcase coming home.
