The Canarian Gastronomy

The gastronomy of the Canary Islands is characterized by simplicity, variety and richness of ingredients which are produced locally and furthermore is influenced by other gastronomies, as for example the Latin American and African, as well as by the different eras of history.

On the Canary Islands there is a great variety of starters which are called “tapas” or “enyesques.”  One of the most typical starters are the so called “papas arrugadas with mojo”, shriveled potatos  which are cooked with their skin a quite a lot of salt. The indespensable side for the potatoes is the red and green mojo sauce, which is very typical for the Canary Islands. Furthermore, there is the “roasted goat cheese” which is also eaten typically with the mojo sauce, and the “Gofio”, a pastry which normally opens the dinner or lunch, or can also form part of the breakfast.

As main course the Canarians tend to eat a lot of meat and fish. Due to the richness of the sea there are many different types of fish. The most typical types of meat are rabbit and goat.

Between the desserts a great variety can be found as well, as for example “Bienmesabe“, a typical almond crème, “Quesillo“ and many different types of fruits. The most popular fruits are the Canarian banana, avocados, papayas and figs.

In order to accompany the dishes the inhabitants of the Canary Island have 33 different sorts of wine, 14 red wines and 19 white wines. The wines have a great quality as the vineyards never experienced a plague which could have damaged the wine.
