The rich gastronomy of Tenerife

It is said that, when it comes to culinary culture, Tenerife (and the Canary archipelago in general) is a crossroads between three cultures: the indigenous Guanche, the Iberian (Spanish and Portuguese) and the American. From the crossing of products, cooking and styles, the rich gastronomy of this island emerges. Taking cooking courses in Tenerife can help you discover and get to know it better.

Traditional Tenerife dishes are based on fresh quality products, few elements and simple preparations.

These are the same ideas advocated by many of today’s great chefs. Besides, they are not particularly complicated, you only need to learn a few tricks…
