Mother's Day Culinary GiftMother’s Day is Sunday, May 9th which sounds distant, but it’s less than a week away!  If  Mom loves to cook or enjoy great food, we can help put together a gift array of specialties to suit her style, from tinned fish, foie gras and specialty meats.  We’ve also assembled a gift bag full of culinary treasures for Mom ($42.99).  Included in the gift bag are:
500 ml of Marques de Priego EVOO from Priego de Cordoba, Spain
375 ml bottle of sherry vinegar from Jerez de la Frontera
4.4 oz box of Maldon Smoked Sea Salt
8.8 oz box of Mathez Chocolate-Pistachio Truffles from France
A snack bag of Serpis Lemon-stuffed olives
2.6 oz tin of Jose Gourmet Tuna Pate
J. Laurens Cremant de LimouxAdd a bottle of tasty J. Laurens Cremant de Limoux Brut Rosé for $15.99 + tax to make the Mother’s Day gift even more festive!   J. Laurens Cremant de Limoux Brut Rosé is a gorgeous pale salmon color.  It offers up a fresh bouquet of wild strawberry with a touch of watermelon on the palate.  Bright, rich and balanced it is delicious on its own or make a sensational Mimosa with it.

Handmade CeramicsOther great gift ideas for Mom:
Padrón pepper plants – For Mom’s garden, we’ve got Padrón starts in both 4″ pots and jumbo size available.   Plant outside as soon as temperatures are above 50 degrees at night and start harvesting peppers in mid-July.  This is a gift that keeps on giving.
Ceramics and clay cookware – Choose from hand-painted serving bowls, platters, and pitchers to brighten up the kitchen or table.   Or gift Mom a clay cazuela for roasting, braising, or baking anything from eggs, fish, vegetables, or poultry.
paella kit2019Caviaroli – “Taste explosion” best explains Caviaroli.  Sphere-shaped, these gustatory pearls are available in olive oil, balsamic, or pomegranate vinegar flavor. With the consistency of caviar, these tiny rounds are used as a seasoning and sprinkled over salads or grilled foods. Intensely flavored, they explode in the mouth, surprising and stimulating the palate.  It’s a fantastic addition to a special meal.
Paella Kit or Burner sets – If Mom loves to cook but has never made paella, she’d be thrilled with one of our kits.   Our paella ingredients kit ($28.99) has the basic ingredients (rice, saffron, piquillo peppers, smoked paprika) to make authentic paella; simply add broth, vegetables, and proteins of choice.   Our paella pan kits ($56.47-$78.94) include the essential ingredients shown above for making paella, along with a cookbook and paella pan that serves either six or ten.  The paella burner kit, “Set Andreu” ($150.00) is for making larger paellas outdoors.  It includes a wheeled leg set and 12 serving carbon steel paella pan.  If you don’t have a regulator hose to attach the burner to a propane tank, we have them here for an additional $19.99.
Gift box of rabitos –  These dark chocolate-covered figs are stuffed with chocolate-brandy ganache and are simply irresistible.
Gift certificates – We offer gift certificates in all amounts if you’d like to let Mom choose what suits her fancy.

muga rosadoMuga Rosé 2020, Rioja ($17.99)   
One of our favorite Spanish rosados arrived this week!  Muga rosé shows enticing floral aromas with notes of berry and citrus.  Bright and complex, it delivers refreshing mineral-laden complexity on the palate.  The finish is lengthy, dry, and clean. Fantastic with seafood paella.

Chateau La RoqueChâteau La Roque 2017, Pic Saint Loup ($20.99)   65% Grenache, 25% Syrah & 10% Mourvèdre fermented with indigenous yeasts, aged in concrete tanks for 12 months.  Deep and chewy, yet fresh and lifted, this wine vividly recalls wild fruit and Mediterranean herbs. Notes of leather, black fruit & spice add complexity to the fleshy mid-palate. A powerful, complete wine that is relatively low in alcohol (13.5%).  Serve this with grilled vegetables or sausages.  Certified biodynamic.
