April Discovery 🐟🐙🦀

With warmer weather on the horizon and summer just around the corner, it's the perfect time to start planning your next adventure. If Spain is on your radar, we've curated some irresistible destinations to tempt you. Plus, we'll pair each spot with a recommended tin from our store, so you can savor the flavors before you even set foot in the country. Vamos! 

Barcelona

Get lost in the colorful streets, marvel at Gaudí's masterpieces, and chill out on sandy beaches. Don't miss out on the food scene - for tapas, don't miss out on the traditional "patatas bravas" accompanied of course with "pa amb tomaquet" (tomato bread).

Vermut is a religion there, so we are going to go with a classic fixture from Vilassar de Mar, Barcelona: Espinaler Premium Mussels in Pickled Sauce

Madrid

Dive into the bustling streets, where history meets modernity at every corner. Explore majestic palaces, lively plazas, and world-class museums. And oh, the food! Indulge in authentic Spanish cuisine, from crispy churros to succulent jamón ibérico. 

Ever had a "bocadillo de calamares"? Yes, we are referring to their famous squid sandwich. We're paying homage to that delicious staple with this La Brújula Squids in Olive Oil

Valencia

Explore the charming streets of Valencia, where ancient history meets futuristic architecture. Dive into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, or stroll through the vibrant markets. And the food? Valencia is the birthplace of paella, enough said.

At lata we're lucky to import an exclusive brand that originated in Valencia's Mercado Central itself. Why not try these amazing Samare White Clams in Brine 

Cádiz

Wander through winding streets lined with whitewashed buildings, immerse yourself in the rich maritime history, and soak up the laid-back atmosphere. 

When it comes to Cadiz, we're talking about tuna and a rich fishing heritage. If you haven't yet, you must try this Herpac Bluefin Tuna Belly in Olive Oil from Barbate, Cadiz.

Herpac makes their debut in our Discovery Box with their amazing mackerel in olive oil. You can't go wrong enjoying them over tomato bread, or if you're feeling a bit more adventurous try it in a sandwich with wild arugula and grilled artichoke hearts (if you have a Trade Joe's nearby, they have some really good ones). 

 

José Gourmet Stickleback in Pickled Sauce

This Stickleback from Portuguese brand José Gourmet is caught in the North East Atlantic Ocean and prepared with the excellence and simplicity of the classic pickled sauce. It is rich in contrasts, while being soft and balanced. Its smaller size will go perfect with crackers or chips or your next seacutery board ;)

Bacalaos Alkorta, a family-run company in the village of Elgoibar, specializes in cod, offering it fresh, frozen, cooked, salted, and jarred. Enjoy this "Luxurious and creamy like duck foie gras but with the unmistakable flavor of cod and all the health benefits that come from it" over crackers or toasted bread. You'll be surprised!

 

Nuri Spiced Sardines in Olive Oil

Nuri Spiced Sardines in Olive Oil

With over 100 years of intricate knowledge under their belt, Nuri is one of the pinnacle canned fish companies from around the world. No one does sardines like they do. One really fun way of enjoying them is into rice balls, perfect for a healthy snack on the go. Mix about a tablespoon of white rice with shredded sardines into a uniform ball. You can top with some crunch seasoning for extra texture. My son loves it.
