Description

 

This gift box contains some of the finest foods from Asturias. Asturias is a region of Spain on the north coast. It is an area known as 'Green' Spain, because of the amount of rain it receives each year. Asturian gastronomy is based on the products that grow well there. Cattle graze in the lush pastures, while cider apple orchards gives Asturias its famous cider. The climate is too wet to dry-cure chorizo, so instead it is oak-smoked and used in the most famous bean stew from Asturias, 'Fabada Asturiana'. The gourmet products in this box bring some of these flavours straight to your home!

It contains two bottles of cider: a dry sparkling 'champagne' cider called 'El Gaitero' (700ml), and a still 'scrumpy' cider, Trabanco. Then for the Fabada Asturiana you need our box of 'Compango'. This is a 250g pack of mixed smoked meats: chorizo, morcilla and panceta. We have also included 100g Cecina, richly flavoured smoked beef slices. And from the Picos de Europa mountains are a lighly smoked venison horseshoe chorizo and a wild boar salami. And to complete the feast a whole 1kg wheel of smoked Idiazabal cheese.
