Description: Gofio is a doughy, ball-shaped bread made with a variety of flours but orginally with blue cornflour (US: corn starch). This is now likely to be toasted wheat, barley, maize and/or chickpeas. It was eaten by the inhabitants of the Canary Islands, particularly Gomera, prior to the arrival of the Spanish and has all the appearance of a primitive bread. The sample we ate was gritty, moist and rather unpleasant.
