LISTENER TIP: Churros & Chocolate
Good afternoon Dr. Zorba,
Recently, one of your listeners inquired about breakfast as part of the Mediterranean diet. Toward the end of your answer you mentioned something from Spain (not chorizo) that was often dipped in hot chocolate. That something is the churro, one of the many food gifts given to the world from Spain.
We had the opportunity to live in Spain for nearly four years and enjoyed churros frequently. I must caution you that churros when eaten with chocolate (especially the really dark chocolate) or espresso can be habit forming! :-)
Enjoy them when you can.
