Getting acquainted with a foreign cuisine can be an intimidating challenge. But it’s important to remember that you don’t have to take on everything at once. Adding little bits and pieces of new ingredients and flavors to familiar dishes can be a great way of introducing your palette to unknown sensations. And if we’re talking about cuisines you don’t want to miss out on, we’ve got to start with Spain.
From cured meats to seafood, Spanish flavors are diverse, versatile, and always delicious. However, they don’t have to be complicated. With Matiz products, you can add a bit of Spanish flair to your daily diet without any extra effort. So, we went ahead and compiled a beautiful selection of all of their most exquisite canned seafood, spreads, spices and condiments to make sure that your pantry had everything you might need to cook up an authentic Spanish feast.
Let’s start with some convenient boost of flavors, shall we? Quick and easy food is often unjustly deemed as bland or boring, which is only as true as you make it. With Matiz sardines and Matiz mackerel, you can transform even the most mundane lunches into a festive celebration. Simply boil a few potatoes, sprinkle them with a dash of our flor de sal, and pair them with some spicy wild sardines - the best combinations are often the simplest. You could also add a quick boost of flavors to any meal with our All I Oli spread and Matiz Catalan romesco sauce - from snacks to gourmet recipes, these spectacular tastes will elevate any meal!
But how about the most famous Spanish dish of all? You did not think we’d leave you without some supplies for perfect paella, did you? We’ve got more than enough ingredients to make sure your Mediterranean feast goes splendidly! With Matiz sofrito paella base and rice options, you’re bound to start strong! Whether you choose to go with their bomba rice or the Valenciano rice, your paella will have a perfect foundation! And after that, it’s up to your imagination - would you prefer to go with the classic recipe? Or play around with all the options? Maybe add some of our canned baby clams in there? Or even the most incredible Matiz octopus? Paella is meant to be a celebration of Mediterranean flavors - feel free to make it as exciting as possible!
Want to end the night with a decadent dessert that has a bit of Spanish aroma going through it? We’ve got quite a few options that could be just right! Combine our organic quince paste with your favorite baked goods - use it as a filling for cakes, topping for crepes and waffles, or add it to your autumnal pies - it’s delicious with everything but pairs especially well with cinnamon! You could also add a few of the most renowned Marcona almonds to your sweet treats for a bit of crunch, or enjoy our organic Spanish chestnuts and the ready-made Matiz raw fig cake for a perfect end to your day!
