Gato tourner from Rodrigues…

Special post!

Mum has been to Rodrigues for the last 2 weeks and on her return back here, she brought a “gato typik rodriguais” known as “Gato tourner”

lol, want to know y?

Check out the pics….


Ingredients: flour, yeast(“lelvin”), sugar and syrup.

How it is made?
Flour and yeast is mixed, allowed to rest for about 1 day and then it is turned (“tourner”) as shown in the pics, then finally sugar and syrup are added to give them this color….



Frankly speaking, at first sight, it looks like a piece of fresh meat, with blood all over it!


If u are sensitive/delicate, u can even vomit, so beware!

The taste?

Pas mal, its sweet because of the sugar and syrupt and has the taste of “Piaw”.
Good to taste but after eating 2 of them, lol, i dont want any now.
3 of them (above) are still in the fridge…

So, that was me, blogging another page of my life, when i tasted the “gato tourner” of Rodrigues Origin

  • YOUR post brings back fond memories of my childhood in Rodrigues and the time I spent preparing these cakes. It is not surprising that the taste is not sophisticated; after all, the ingredients are basic. But, to be fair, the cakes taste much nicer when fresh.
