61,000 people voted for their favourite Spanish dish from a shortlist of 20 and papas con mojo came top by a decent margin.
While we have no doubt that the dish deserves to be on the list, we also suspect that a lot of Canarians voted while sitting on the beach. 18% of the voters were from outside Spain so if you voted, thank you very much.
The vote supports Spain's bid to get its cuisine on UNESCO's list of the World's intangible cultural heritage along with Japanese, Mexican and French cuisine and Spanish traditions such as flamenco, La Gomera's whistling language, and the Elche mystery play.
Lex says: Here at Gran Canaria Info, we're particularly happy about this news as it was our photo that the competition organisers used to represent papas con mojo.
