500 years. It took 500 years to shape the gastronomy of Gran Canaria. These years were needed to bring together the amalgam of products gifted by the ocean, and later to mix them with the distant influences that anchored in the island’s ports.
Gran Canaria’s gastronomy is based on its tradition as a major port in the Atlantic. Travellers from a hundred different countries arrived in Gran Canaria, bringing with them the flavours of 10 meridians around the world.
