Is well known that Lanzarote, one of the spanish Canarias Islands, is the synonym of fire. You can feel the heat immediataly after stepping on the land. The best way to verify this argument, however, is visiting the Timanfaya’s National Park, located in Hilario island. There, not only you can know the beauty of the natural lava fields, but also taste it.
Just as you read it. Would you like to taste a chicken cooked in a volcano? Be our guest! You will find in Lanzarote a restaurant specialised in cooking food with the heat that comes from the ground.
They can do it, thanks to an invention known as The Vulkan Grill, created by the renowned architect César Manrique. It consist basically of a pair of grills placed on a huge and deep hole of the ground. Being an area of high geothermal activity and magma, the heat rising from the bowels of the Earth is able to grill the food, placed on the grid.
Do you find this interesting? The most original barbecue you have never seen, indeed! Certainly it would be nice to try meals cooked with this technique, but if Timanfaya’s Vulkan Grill is far away from where you are, you always can use the Movilfrit Caliu BBQ; the way to cook is not so original, but the results taste wonderful!
Say goodbye to coats, scarves and forget about shutting yourself at home close to the heating. Good weather is here! It’s time to release flip-flops, shorts and sunglasses of your closet to enjoy the nice warmth of the sun.
And what is the best way to celebrate the arrival of this season? Pool party and BBQ with friends, of course! Juicy pieces of meat topped with coarse salt, vegetables cooked on a slow burn, grilled tuna skewers, grilled shrimps with garlic… All served with a nice cold beer and the best company of yours. Let’s face it, it sounds SO good!
