The Gofio Mill and the Energy Bar

Gofio is an ingredient every Tinerfeño grows up with, yet many of the millions of visitors who pass through Tenerife are totally unaware of its existence. Every supermarket stocks packs of the stuff, but still it remains invisible.

We first became aware of gofio at our first romería when we found ourselves with lots of little packets of aluminium foil wrapped around a dense brown cake. Later we found out it was gofio amasado.
