18 May 2009
The Spanish Embassy, in conjunction with the Spanish Food and Drink Industry Federation and Foods from Spain, held a food and wine trade show at the Shelbourne hotel last month. Exhibiting were a range of artisan and mainstream producers of Spanish cheese, cured meats, preserved and canned foods, and other specialist products, available for sale in Ireland.
Castillo de Canena displayed its internationally acclaimed olive oils, although many others also included the product among their ranges.
Priorat Natur, which besides various local olive varieties, also supplies traditional handmade sweet and salted hazelnuts and almonds.
Among the cheese-makers, Grupo Vegajardin exports ranges from multiple Spanish regions – including very fine Galician Tetilla DO, and unpasteurised sheep cheese Torta del Casar DO from Estremadura – all of which were of exceptional quality.
While cured meats were very well represented, including those of Cecinas Pablo (Sheridan’s) which ranged from prepacked sliced salchichon to whole cured Serrano hams.
Importers Spanish Flavour showed jarred products from Gvtarra, such as preserved artichoke hearts, and Eirespan exhibited its specialist prepared foods from Spanish supplier Sol.
