are traditional Spanish
desserts developed centuries ago by Spanish shepherds.
Up high in the mountains, fresh baked goods were impossible
to come by, so the ingenious, nomadic folk of the
hills came up with a delicious cake-like, cylindrical,
daily staple which they could easily cook in a pan
over an open fire. This was the birth of Churros.
Originally churros were about
the size of a breadstick, and they were eaten plain
or rolled in cinnamon sugar. In Spain, churros are
still a very popular breakfast, snack or dessert.
But something this tasty wasn’t destined to
remain in its country of origin.
It was only a matter of time before
churros traveled to South America and other Hispanic
countries and communities, eventually making their
way to North America.
Once churros were adopted by peoples
outside of Spain, they continued to evolve. Instead
of being eaten plain, or rolled in sugar, a hollow,
jumbo-sized churro was created, and stuffed with all
kinds of delectable fillings such as chocolate, dulce
de leche and fruit.
You’ll find both the original
(called a Churrito), and the stuffed, jumbo-sized churro
(called Churrisimo), served at Churrisimo Café eateries.

The delectable art of churro making is passed down
from generation to generation, and today in Spain
the churro is almost a national symbol. Therefore
it’s not surprising that someone who specializes
in making churros is held in very high regard.
A churro maker, or specialist, is called a Churrero.
