Chef's Starter Kit
  • Five classics to spice up any kitchen
  • Sherry vinegar, sea salt, paprika, olive oil & saffron
  • All from small artisan producers
  • Packed in cloth gift bag

Smoky Pimentón de la Vera paprika. Pungent saffron. Piquant 40-year sherry vinegar. Spanish cuisine is full of complex flavors, and we’ve brought our favorites together with this starter kit for the inquisitive chef.

The most luxurious flavor is our saffron. Hand-harvested from crocus flowers and toasted to draw out its flavor, this prized spice comes from La Mancha where the best saffron is grown. Our Princessa de Minaya is the highest grade in the world.

Our Pimentón de la Vera, or smoked paprika, is made by Spain’s first and best producer, La Dalia. In the countryside, they smoke hand-harvested peppers for fifteen days over local oak logs, for an intensely smokey flavor and a deep red color.

We’ve included sea salt with red wine and herbs, hand-harvested from the ancient salt flats near the Bay of Càdiz - famous since Roman times for the quality of its salts. These salts are tended by a fourth-generation farmer. It’s a perfect secret ingredient to meats and stews!

Another kitchen essential is olive oil. This isn’t just any bottle, but an extra virgin olive oil produced from ripe Arbequina and Empeltre olives. It is the perfect partner to our Cepa Vieja sherry vinegar from Jerez de la Frontera, aged in the solera manner in oak barrels.

This kit is a wonderful way to get started in the kitchen with the best ingredients from Spain possible. Their Midas touch makes any cook look like a rising star – the perfect gift for a new cook or consummate chef.
