Today, we are here to pay homage to the culinary treasures of Spain, those delights that have left an indelible mark on our palate and tell the story of a country full of passion and tradition. In particular, we want to delve into the world of intense and captivating flavors that lie behind emblematic products such as Manchego cheese, chorizos, sobrasada, and longaniza. Get ready for a journey filled with emotions and discoveries!
Let's begin our culinary tour in medieval Spain, where Manchego cheese originated. Its roots sink deep into the region of La Mancha, famous for its vast plains and extreme climate. The shepherds of yesteryear, knowledgeable about the properties of sheep's milk, ventured to create a unique and exquisite cheese. Manchego cheese, with its distinctive nutty flavour and firm texture, became a symbol of tradition and artisanal craftsmanship that has endured over the centuries.

Continuing our culinary journey, we arrive at the cured chorizos, those delicacies that have captivated generations. Chorizos, with their intense flavor, have a history that dates back to Roman times. Since then, they have been the faithful companion of our table, bringing character and authenticity.
But we cannot forget about sobrasada, originating from the Balearic Islands. This soft and flavourful spreadable pork meat, seasoned with paprika and other spices, envelops us in its aroma and taste, reminding us of the richness and diversity of Spanish cuisine.

Finally, we cannot fail to mention longaniza, a cured sausage whose origin is lost in the mists of time. Each region of Spain has its own variant of longaniza, each with its unique and distinctive character. Whether in Catalonia, Aragon, Andalusia, or any other corner of the country. Also, we are happy to say that our longaniza is 100% locally made but we follow the “Extremadura recipe” to deliver original longanizas here in Australia!
