New York - I just ran across a great website where you can buy all sorts of food products from Spain. It's called TIENDA.COM - that's spelled T-I-E-N-D-A.com. "Tienda" is Spanish for "boutique" or "shop", and this cyber-shop has really interesting Spanish foodstuffs such as fresh and dried chorizo sausages, beautiful Serrano hams, Spanish saffron, and canned goods.
You can also get the equipment you need for preparing Spanish cuisine at home, such as paella pans, and a paella burner for cooking paella outdoors on your patio. They also sell those ham-holders that you see in Spanish tapas bars. You can also order Spanish wines to go with your food products - bottles like Riojas from Bodegas Montecillo, cavas from Segura Viudas or Sherries from Osborne. These wines can be purchased separately, or in gift baskets with food items. Check out tienda.com and, as they say in Spanish, buen provecho!
