Almonds, honey, and a perfect pairing with lots of caress. The perfect gift.
An extremely sweet suggestion.
On occasions, when the gastronomy of a place is of such high quality like in Gran Canaria's case, food products as mementos can be the best option for a souvenir. What do we suggest? In this case it comes enclosed in a glass jar, and stores the interior essence of the island. Bienmesabe is based on the pairing with almonds and honey, which is one of the most well-known deserts in the area, and it's very easy to find in the local markets where you'll taste its homemade variey which is made with love, favouring the traditional trade in this way. If you are just visiting the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, you'll find some good options to buy this product in the district of Vegueta or on Avenida Mesa y López, but if you'll be on the island around the end of January, you mustn't miss the "Fiesta del Almendro en Flor" in the town of Tejeda that offers a wonderful sight of incomparable beauty each year. The authentic birthplace of this sweet delicacy.
