Born into churros

Recently a friend asked me to suggest a good place to get churros in Madrid. I offered a few suggestions, but insisted that she first try the best churros con chocolate Madrid has to offer at Chocolat in the Huertas district. I can’t think of a better breakfast, treat, or late night snack than crispy, fried-to-perfection churros lightly dusted with sugar and dipped in piping hot, delicious thick hot chocolate. The charming video below, which profiles Charo Salguero Venegason, fondly known as “Grandmother of Churros,” is a real treat too. She’s a living legend from the small town of El Puerto de Santa María, Spain. Charo’s churreria isn’t just a business—it’s her life.

    I know now what I want for breakfast, but it’s a long walk to Madrid, Brian!
