Five Ways to Try Gofio on Tenerife

What’s the most authentically Canarian food on Tenerife? It’s not goat, it’s not rabbit, it’s not bananas. It’s toasted flour called gofio; an ingredient that was beefing up the cave-dwelling locals long before the Spanish conquistadors ever set their eyes on these paradisiacal lands.

We’ve written about gofio before but if you want to go local and try some you need to know what to look for. Gofio flavoured dishes can be an acquired taste. I’ve learnt from past experience not to start gofio virgins on the hard stuff, but to ease them in.

Here’s the pathway to gofio fulfilment.
