La Perla DOP Bomba Rice (Arroz Bomba):
The traditional paella rice of Spain - BOMBA Arroz -(also known as the "Queen of Rice") is a varietal most commonly found in Valencia, the capital of Paella making. It is a round rice, or short grain, and can be used in many recipes both for Mediterranean and other cuisines from around the world. The Bomba rice is beloved by gourmet chefs for its loose dry texture and for the fact that it soaks up 30 percent of its weight and size with the broth it is prepared in, adding amazing consistency of flavors to all dishes.

La Catedral de Navarra Organic DOP Piquillo Peppers
Arrange some piquillo peppers on top of your paella for a sweet pop of flavor, or blend them into some aioli to serve alongside the paella.
Piquillo peppers are exclusively cultivated in the Navarra region of Northern Spain and are protected under DOP status. Under strict quality control, the Piquillo variety must meet government-established guidelines during cultivation, harvest and packing. These whole Piquillo peppers are roasted over a direct flame and are cored and peeled by hand before being packed in their own juices to preserve their naturally fruity flavor. Softly smoky, tender with a supple texture, these sweet red peppers are ready to be used straight from the jar.
Las Hermanas Organic Sweet Pimentón de la Vera DOP (smoked paprika)
In La Vera, the pepper used to make paprika enjoys a privileged microclimate and so develops naturally; sheltered by the rugged peaks of the Sierra de Gredos mountains, gorges and green meadows through which the Tiétar river flows. La Vera Paprika is obtained by grinding mature, dried peppers. The peppers are dried using Oakwood, which generates sufficient heat to dehydrate the fruit perfectly and gives La Vera Paprika its three main characteristics: aroma, flavor and color.

Matiz España Saffron
Can you imagine pulling tiny pistils out of 150,000 crocus flowers one by one? That is how many it takes to produce 1 kilogram of saffron! And it is all done by hand – just as it has been done for over 3,500 years. The La Mancha region of Spain is famous for its high quality saffron that is used to give flavor, aroma and color to many wonderful traditional dishes, including the increasingly popular Paella!
Today, the saffron market is filled with saffron from Spain, Turkey, and many countries of the Middle East. The important factor in determining quality is a saffron’s power of coloration. According to the ISO normatives, grade 1 saffron has a power of coloration above 190 UPC (units of power of coloration). Azafrán-Oro, used by the World renown chef Ferran Adria, regularly tests at over 240 UPC. This pure Spanish saffron is packaged in beautiful recycled glass jars and hand-sealed with wax. Although saffron cultivation does not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers, this product is very difficult to certify organic due to the cost to the small farmers who grow it.
