LAS GACHAS

 by  Omar Castañeda and Quintina Valero

Food, alongside Fashion and Architecture, it is one of those aspects of daily life that can reveal a lot, not only about an individual but also about an entire generation.

 

A mere dish contains so much information about its consumers that its recipe could reflect location, habits and even the socio-political factors in play at the time of being served.

 

Doña Justa shows us how to prepare some "Gachas" and in the process explains how that peculiar dish reflects the times of scarcity in the Spanish Civil War.
