The Canary cuisine is Mediterranean but with its own personality. The wise use of fruits, vegetables and meat and very little fat characterise this kitchen.
A treasured aboriginal legacy is gofio , toasted grain flour (basically wheat and corn) of great nutritional value which is taken with milk, fish broth or mixed with water and salt. Worth mentioning are the cheeses, several of which have won prizes in both national and international competitions.
Fish, either fresh or salted, is probably the most common ingredient in the Canary diet and is generally accompanied by a varied selection of "mojos", sauces made from a blend of olive oil and spices.
