Illegal Monkey Labor, Coriander Pizza, and Tasting a Canary Island Cheese Board in Tenerife

Juliet and Jacoby’s second stop on their Spain trip is Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands

Spring break continues with stop no. 2. In Tenerife, known for its microclimates and black-sand beaches, Juliet and Jacoby get a firsthand look at how volcanic soil affects the flavor of food on this tropical island. They discuss the treatment of octopi, question a restaurant’s decision to serve deep-fried squirrel, and share their thoughts on gene-edited food. During Taste Test, they sample a Canary Island cheese board featuring four cheeses made with goat’s and sheep’s milk. Finally, they close the show by sharing their Personal Food News and hearing a listener-submitted voicemail.
