Dazzle your friends with the sensational spices of Donostia Foods. That's right, dazzle. Piment d'Espelette, the vibrant red pepper of choice in Basque Country, will provide a unique flavor to any dish. Saffron will fill the air with that immediately identifiable, intoxicating aroma and all in the kitchen will nod their heads appreciatively.
Both essential to a variety of Spanish dishes. In Basque Country, you'll find piment d'Espelette sprinkled on salads in place of cracked black pepper, rubbed onto cured ham, or stirred into sauces and stews. The eponymous peppers of the village of Espelette are strung by hand on the facades of buildings throughout the hamlet to dry in the sun.
Saffron, of course, is the essential ingredients to any paella prepared throughout Spain, but is used in everything from ice cream to soup. The fragrant and flavorful spice is expensive, but a few threads are enough to enhance any dish.
