Often overlooked in comparison to the Spanish mainland, the Canary Islands have a cuisine all their own, influenced by their location off the coast of northwestern Africa. In this class Laura Pyles will explore some of the traditional local flavors, starting with whole fried fish rubbed with coriander and drizzled with mojo verde. You’ll fill the table with bowls of potaje de berros, a spiced watercress soup with pork, sweet corn, and chickpeas; papas arrugadas (little wrinkly salt-boiled potatoes) with mojo picon (red pepper sauce) and almogrote (paprika-spiced cheese dip). For dessert you’ll make bienmesabe, a cinnamon and toasted almond custard served with ice cream and crispy biscuits.
