Canarian cuisine is very simple, but it is also very wise and rich in flavour.
?Gofio canario? is made from different grains that once toasted and ground make a very complete yet fine textured meal. ?Gofio? was a staple of the guanches? diet in pre-Spanish time. The guanches would use stone molls to grind it. Now a day, gofio is used as a side dish in many different dishes, but also, surprisingly in new creations of desserts and ice creams.
The word ?mojo? is probably Portuguese in origin and is the name given to a typical canarian sauce. Not all sauces are called mojos, only the sauces that are traditional in the islands. So Mayonnaise for example is not called ?mojo mayonnaise?.
