Once we discovered our more romantic side this past Valentine's Day, we couldn't help but to indulge in it a bit more. We asked Smith & Vine on a date, but they politely informed us they'd like to remain business partners rather than significant others. That's okay! Instead, we'll showcase our love of all things Spanish right here.
We have two game-changing meats that you just have to try. First up is Lomo Iberico de Bellota, made by La Espanola and imported by Fermin. If you're familiar with Jamon Iberico, you know that Iberico pork products come from the happiest pigs on earth. These free-range pigs are fed the finest, hand-picked acorns (bellotas) by their ranchers, and roam around acres and acres of idyllic Spanish countryside. You can taste this happiness immediately: nutty, with notes of garlic and paprika. With a low fat content, this happy pork is bound to make you happy!
We also have one of our select few seafood products in store! Garre Mojama is an air-dried, cured yellow-fin tuna. All of the robust flavors you might expect of a cured meat like bresaola or prosciutto, yet with just enough of a seaside tone to put it in a league of its own. If you like sashimi, look no further; this Spanish loin serves as an excellent, ready-to-serve meat accompaniment. Also perfect within any appetizer platter. Just sprinkle a bit of olive oil and you're set!
Inspired to make your own paella? We have the perfect base for it. El Arroz de Calasparra, also known as "bomba rice" or "Valencia rice", grows near the coast in East Spain. Its origin makes this short-grain rice natural as a base for any seafood dish. It absorbs two to three times the amount of water as many other rice, making it well-suited to take in any other flavors you might want to toss into the pot!
Finish it off with Riestra! As a Basque cider, its natural effervescence lends it a mellower texture than many carbonated domestic ciders. More sweet than crisp, Riestra is well suited to accompany a meal as you would use a prosecco or white wine. If you're looking to drink it at its bubbliest, pour it high up and turn it 180 degrees!
