Our gastronomy ...
500 years. It took 500 years to cook the gastronomy of Gran Canaria. They were necessary to bake the amalgam of products that the ocean gave away. And to mix them later with the distant influences that anchored by the ports of the island. Because the gastronomy of Gran Canaria grows on its tradition as a great port of the Atlantic. Travelers from a hundred different countries arrived in Gran Canaria, bringing with them the flavors of ten meridians around.
A sway of remixed ingredients that can explain the diversity of the cuisine of its 21 municipalities. A variety that jumps from the great Flower Cheese, to sweet potato sweets, wine, cane rum or coffee.
And to all that you just had to add the sea. A multimillionaire sea, surrounding an island where an enviable orchard was germinating. The Gran Canaria pantry was also lucky. Thanks to the good weather, it was full of gourmet products such as tomatoes, apples, olives, tropical fruits, bienmesabe, oranges, sweet banana or the enormous variety of fish in the markets. They are just one example of everything the curious visitor can find on our island of flavors. A perfect kitchen to bring together good food and good weather on your vacation days.
