Emperor leaves behind rotten pelt found by Spanish river dog (9)

HINT: Not every culture would consider this food.

SOLUTION

PEKINGESE    = Dog*

  KING       = Emperor
  ahead of   = leaves behind
PE           = Pelt - lt (rotten = deletion indicator)
      ES     = Spanish (i.e. language)
        E    = River E (in Scotland)

* Dog meat is considered a food[^] in some countries, thus still follows the theme of food named after a location. The Pekingese dog breed[^] is named after Peking(Beijing) which is the capital of China (which also happens to consume the most dog meat of all the countries).
