You’ve probably already heard about the Mediterranean diet that’s based on the food traditionally consumed by French, Italian, Spanish, and Greek, right? Although they have vastly different cuisines, the common thread is always the incorporation of plant foods such as legumes, vegetables, and grains, as well as fresh fish, seafood, and spices. The Mediterranean diet is packed with delicious flavors, nutrients, and authenticity that many strive to replicate in their everyday homemade meals. If you’d like to recreate and craft boldly complex Spanish dishes inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, there’s no better way to do that than by simply having your pantry stocked with suitable traditional kitchen staples made exclusively in Spain! Yes, we are hinting at our curated selection of Spanish specialty condiments by Emperatriz!

With the utmost respect for nature and preserving the environment, Emperatriz specialties grown and collected in orchards of Emperatriz facilities have withstood the test of time and continue to provide all the cooking enthusiasts with superb pantry essentials!
Now let’s move to our selected Spanish cooking items that every kitchen needs to have! Why don’t we begin on a spicy note? No Spanish kitchen can go without the succulent sweetness and mild heat of piquillo peppers. With their smoky, tangy undertones, our selected Emperatriz roasted piquillo peppers are packed and preserved in brine to ensure the longevity of the product. Of course, you can enjoy these roasted peppers straight out of the jar or add them to salads, cheese boards, and pizza.
The next favorite on our Mediterranean ingredient list? Artichokes! Loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, artichokes are known to be a commonly used ingredient that combines taste and nutrition, bringing you the best of both worlds! Our selected Emperatriz artichoke hearts in brine provide the next level of deliciousness that plays well with thinly sliced red onions, fresh rosemary, and mozzarella. Whether you’d like to serve them as a side dish or add them to salads, dips, and cheese boards, they will make for a perfectly balanced & affordable ingredient. They’re brought to you in a large tin so you can stock up and never run out of your favorite Mediterranean ingredient at home!
Pulses are a major part of the Mediterranean diet, especially chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans. They are an absolute must-have for many traditional Spanish dishes, including casseroles, soups, tapas, dips, and so much more. Whether you’d like to enjoy our selected Emperatriz giant chickpeas as a part of your chickpea salad recipe with cucumbers, bell peppers, olives, red onions, and feta, or roast them with spices and simply enjoy them as a delightful snack, they will be the best additions to your pantry!
Our curated collection of Emperatriz preserves simply wouldn’t be complete without the center of Basque seafood tradition - Spanish angulas, also known as baby eels, surimi. Real angulas can cost quite a bit of money, but our selected Emperatriz baby eels surimi brings you the best of both worlds: even though they are not the real deal, they are just as flavorsome without breaking the bank! With soft, mild, and tender texture along with lingering succulence, Emperatriz baby eels surimi makes for a delightful seafood addition to salads and simple slices of toast!
