My parents are here for a visit and we’ve had a great time getting to tour around Cantabria and the Basque Country, meanwhile trying out all the local food. We’ve had traditional Cantabrian winter fare: white bean stew with sausage, roasted stuffed red peppers, and crema montañesa. We’ve eaten a French style lunch and indulged in Gâteau basque, but I think our treat tonight topped them all. Typically Spanish and great to warm up in winter, I promise you won’t go wrong if you order chocolate con churros in a local bar. There is nothing better to eat for dinner than fried dough straws, sprinkled with sugar and dunked in thick hot chocolate pudding.
Violà! (FYI, we decimated the whole plate of churros!)
