– There's room for everyone on the list

This is an internal comment. It expresses the journalist's own opinion.

This seems to be especially true of two things here in the Canary Islands: people who get so nervous that they call the island “Granka”, and Norwegians who dare to try some Norwegian food while on vacation or living on the island. That many of those who get mental tics from “Granca” believe that the name of the island is “Grand Canary” is contradictory. And a bit comical. But now that we've put (for the moment) the controversy over “Granca” behind us, having pointed out how the name is also used by locals in various contexts on Good Morning Norway on February 23, Norwegians should find something new to argue about . The fact that we don't treat each other to eating what we want ourselves seems to be the new trend. Recently, this controversy erupted… once again. He does it every time someone does the same thing Mentionsed Norwegian food in one of the many Facebook groups for Norwegians in Gran Canaria. As usual, some people think it's appropriate to moralize about others choosing Norwegian food over local Canarian food. kitchen. They are well traveled themselves, you must understand that. The irony is evident when Norwegians, who enjoy Italian pasta or German schnitzel, criticize others for not eating “local enough.” Most people who make such comments have almost never eaten a single canary dish in their lives. No, a steak with overcooked vegetables and a cannerie béarnaise doesn't become a canary because the chef thinks the orange slice and the drink umbrella belong on the dish. To travel to outside This does not necessarily mean that you have to abandon all your cultural customs at the border. Like popular custom, it's a good idea not to leave Everything In Gardermoen. So why this apparent discontent that some prefer fish balls to ropa vieja? That Norwegians living abroad sometimes miss the food they grew up with? If we really want to embrace local food cultures, there are plenty of exciting things you can try from Canarian cuisine. Having tried most things, made most of them myself, and of course eaten Gofio with the greatest of them for a number of years, there's still something appealing about letting your taste buds visit the old country from time to time. So, next time you're in the Canary Islands, or find it difficult to scroll a little more than average when someone mentions Norwegian food – remember that Canaries don't eat exclusively Canarian food either. There's room for everyone on the list. Whether it's tapas or cod, let's celebrate the diversity on our plate without preaching about other people's choices. And if you'd like to try some of our special canary food recipes, I've put together a little collection here:
