The interior of Gran Canaria holds still more surprised for visitors, this time related to the island’s inhabitants, their culture and way of life. Among these is Canarian cuisine that for centuries has used excellent quality ingredients (meat, fish, fruit and vegetables) to prepare delicious, original recipes.

To whet your appetite, here is a brief summary of some traditional dishes of Gran Canaria cuisine starting with enyesques (appetisers) such as the famous papas arrugadas, ropa vieja or carajacas; followed by starters such as caldo de pescado or potaje de berros and meat entrées like conejo en salmorejo or fish like vieja sancochada. For dessert we can sweeten our palates with bienmesabe or huevos mole. And we can accompany the meal with a great Gran Canarian wine.
