Win a Spanish Artisan Hamper of Amazing Food
Regular Lavender and Lovage readers may have read my review yesterday for a wonderful artisan Spanish hamper here: Lazy Summer Lunches and Food Hampers: Spanish Tapas Toast with Escalivada Recipe, and now I am delighted to be able to offer all my readers a very special artisan food hamper from the lovely people at The Foodies Larder as a giveaway prize! This bespoke hamper has specially selected ingredients to add a bit of Spanish panache to your late summer table and comprises:
CHIMICHURRI WITH SEAWEED
This is a traditional Chimichurri sauce with all the taste and unique properties of Galician seaweed. It is ideal for grilled meat, fish and seafood. Use it to dress potatoes, to accompany roasted or grilled vegetables, or simply with a nice tomato salad.
ALIOLI WITH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
A real Spanish table isn’t complete without this famous garlicky mayonnaise. Originally from Catalonia, it is made with crushed garlic, salt and olive oil. Indeed, the name is in fact a construct of the Catalan ‘all i oli’ meaning ‘garlic and oil’. It is the perfect accompaniment to many things, including grilled meats as well as a variety of rice and seafood dishes. It also goes very well with Tortilla (Spanish Potato Omelette). We have chosen this version from la Chinata because the quality of their olive oil is some of the best in the country.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL INFUSED WITH BASIL
Olicatessen Olive Oil is produced by Moli dels Torms exclusively from the olives harvested in their estate near Barcelona, Catalonia. The company was conceived in 2005 as the result of a common dream between two eighth generation olive growing families who came together to produce a high quality extra virgin organic olive oil. Olicatessen is a blend of Arbequina olives and other local varieties. With over 50 international awards to its name, including the best organic extra virgin olive oil in Spain, this oil has an intense fruity flavour with traces of tomato, fennel, artichoke, nuts and almonds. We recommend trying it with rice, vegetables, pasta, fish and also for dressing your salads.
ORGANIC ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY
From Sol y Tierra, with the taste of real Spanish orange blossom and all the great benefits that organic honey gives you.
IBERICO BELLOTA SALCHICHON
Ibérico Bellota Salchichón (Spanish Salami) from Jabugo de Ley. Located in la Sierra of Huelva in Andalucía, Jabugo is one of the most famous places in Spain for ibérico ham. It’s worth pointing out that there are varying degrees of quality when it comes to Jamón Ibérico. The best is Jamón Ibérico de Bellota which is from pigs that have been left to roam freely in the forests and have enjoyed a diet of ‘bellota’ or acorns. It is this diet that gives a lot of the flavour to the meat. Great to enjoy by itself as a tapa or as a special addition to your sandwiches, pizzas or empanadas.
DOP RESERVE SHERRY VINEGAR
La Chinata is a family business that began in 1932 to grow olives for oil production. After four generations they have not only acquired a thorough knowledge of olive oil and its uses, but have also developed a range of other gourmet artisan products as well as various olive oil based cosmetics. In this month’s hamper we have chosen their Flask DOP Reserve Sherry Vinegar made from Palomino grapes. Sherry vinegar was the first Spanish vinegar to receive DOP status and this reserve vinegar is particularly special as it is subjected to an ageing time of at least two years in oak barrels. Mahogany in colour, the vinegar acquires hints of oak from the barrels giving it a truly unique personality. With an intense flavour that is still both soft and delicious on the palate, this vinegar is rather like a good perfume: with only a few drops, it has the ability to transform any dish.
This fabulous food hamper will be beautifully packed in a sturdy recyclable box and sent directly to the lucky winner. All you have to do to win, is the follow the instructions below.
