This is Gibraltarian baked bread-like dish,
similar to the Italian
farinata. It is made with chickpea
flour, water, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Calentita is very similar to the Italian Farinata.
The word calentita comes from the Spanish word
caliente, meaning hot or warm. It was probably first given
this name during the early 1900s when street vendors would shout out
"Calentita!", informing people that it was fresh out of the oven. Calentita is
considered to be Gibraltar's national dish.
