Churros, the delicious Spanish treat with an interesting history that can be enjoyed morning, noon and night. You must try them.
The churros recipe is said by some to be Chinese in origin and that it was Portuguese merchants who brought it back to Europe where the fluted-star shape was devised to provide more surface for the sugar to stick to. Others say it was Spanish shepherds that came up with the recipe. Whoever it was, the Iberian explorers eventually took the recipe to the Americas where it eventually came into contact with Aztec chocolate and the winning combination was born.
There is nothing quite like churros with a hot thick chocolate drink in a cafe such as the 19th century Chocolateria San Gines in Madrid (open 24 hours a day!) or our personal favourite, Chocolateria Aliva in Santander – a traditional churro cafe that’s been serving homemade churros since 1960.
