Lanzarote Food and Wine
Papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) are a speciality in Lanzarote. they are grown in the black volcanic soil and have an almost nutty flavour. They are often served with mojo made from spices, herbs, vinegar, olive oil and garlic. Two types of mojo are red mojo, flavoured with peppers and chillies and green mojo flavoured with parsley or coriander.
Papas Crias (wild potatoes) are grown on the rocky hillside and have an almost nutty flavour.
Fish is a speciality in Lanzarote and is caught in local waters. Three of the most popular on the island are cherne (sea bass), vieja (parrot fish) and dorada (sea bream).
Golfo is made from maize flour and toasted corn. In the past when bread was a luxury it was ground in windmills on the island and was a staple eaten with every meal. By the late 19th century break became a staple and today golfo is used to flavour and thicken stews, stocks and soups.
The famous Malvasia wines are cultivated on volcanic ground, yet they are amongst the best in the world and regularly win lots of internation prizes.
