Nothing can invoke fonder memories of a Spanish morning than sitting in a café with fresh churros and a large cup of thick chocolate to dip them in. The churro makers, often a husband and wife, and maybe a son, come on their appointed rounds with their portable kettle, set up shop and then squeeze fluted patterns of thick churro batter into the hot oil.
At just the right moment, they deftly retrieve the long curved strands of sweet light and crunchy churros and snip them into easy to eat lengths. In the olden days they would fill up a cone made from a sheet of yesterday’s newspaper, sprinkle their treat with sugar and hand it to you, sizzling hot.
Churros are great just as they are sprinkled with a little sugar, or dipped in a pool of thick chocolate – chocolate a la taza.
