Have you tasted Gofio?

Gofio is a typical Canarian food made of a non-sifted flour and roasted cereal, usually wheat or maize. It looks like white flour but with a darker or yellowish appearance.

It can be combined with: meats, vegetables, fish, and dairy products: milk, cheese, among others.

– Gofio of Maize is probably the most common.

– Gofio of Wheat is characterized, among other things, for being more consumed in the western islands than in the eastern islands.
