My five favourites

4 March 2019



For producing this article, Padre Ángel and Consum have given 500€ worth of food to the Mensajeros de la paz so that it can be distributed among the most needy.

Ángel García Rodríguez, better known as Father Ángel, is a Spanish priest who is well known for his intensive social work, where he is especially concerned with the most disadvantaged groups such as children and young people in situations of helplessness, drug addicts, victims of gender violence, immigrants and the elderly. Father Ángel's Parish of San Antón in Madrid is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to house homeless people and offer them breakfast and many other initiatives.


It is at the very core of our diet, without its flavour our cuisine wouldn't be the same. It has also been shown that its consumption helps us live better and longer.


 A good, fresh splayed whole fish is one of my favourite delicacies, it doesn't need to be a very special fish. One of that I like best is the chicharro, which reminds me of my youth.


I love sweets and especially chocolate, I remember those bread and chocolate snacks as a child that made me happy. Once in a while I give myself a treat.


Basic food, which I believe shouldn't be missing from any table. It is essential to dip a few "boats" in the sauce. It also symbolises the body of Christ, which has added value for me.  


 It has accompanied us during meals since always, now its virtues are valued when taken in moderation. I like to have a drink at lunch and dinner. Like bread, it has symbolic value for me.
