One of my favourite things about my luxury travel is the chance to try out lots of delicious foods from around the world. This does mean coming home is that bit harder though as I really miss the food! Well now I’ve found the perfect way to solve this little problem and to re-create the magic of holidays with Spanish Artisan gourmet treats from Chef Olé, ideal for foodies like me!
Spanish cuisine is one of my very favourites and with memories of plates of steaming paella, tables crammed with tapas and long evenings drinking Spanish wine al fresco it’s no wonder I’ve got such a soft spot! Chef Olé is the very best place to buy a taste of Spain when you’re back home, even the sight of the box arriving through my door is enough to conjure memories of being in a little Tapas Bar feasting on delicious cuisine!
About Chef Olé
Chef Olé creates delicious boxes and gaskets of gourmet products. They are perfect for gifting or, as I prefer, just to treat yourself and your family.
The company was founded with the intention of introducing and teaching everyone about gourmet Spanish food. You don’t just receive a box of random goodies as with many food delivery companies, there’s real added value behind a Chef Olé purchase. Each box includes 12 easy to follow recipes which are supported with YouTube videos so you can use your ingredients to create a Spanish masterpiece in the comfort of your own kitchen. The recipes are deliberately straight forward using a maximum of five ingredients and taking an average of 15-30 minutes to prepare. Chef Olé also aim to educate you in the Spanish region where each product originated and the boxes include information and history about the products. So, as well as being gourmet heaven, Chef Olé boxes take you on a rich culinary adventure!
Chef Olé Products
All the Chef Olé products are as naturally produced as possible, with no GMO and using traditional manufacturing methods. They are true Artisan products and Chef Olé take the time to visit every one of their Spanish partners. Combined, the producers have more than 100 years experience of producing some of the very best culinary products in Europe which you get to sample!
Several of the boxes include ingredients which you can add to your usual recipes to take them to the next level and to add a hint of Spain. For example, the Picasso Artisan Gift Basket includes some Citric Salt Flakes composed of sea salt flower, orange, lemon and limes peels which are perfect combined with fish and chicken. It also includes the Pedro Ximenez Balsamic Cream which is has a dense creamy texture and is heavenly on salads with dried fruits and with meat or pickled fish.
The boxes are fabulous to use if you are hosting a dinner party; each box makes you the expert on Spanish cooking and let’s you play the host with confidence creating a meal to delight and surprise your guests!
Chef Olé St. Miguel Market Food Gift Basket
One of my favourites is the Chef Olé St. Miguel Market Food Gift Basket which contains 8 premium, artisan products and a beautiful souvenir box. You can create a real tapas extravaganza, jazz up a picnic or dazzle at your next party with the items in this little gem of a basket! The Galician Mussels in Escabeche are plump orange mussels from the coast of Galicia marinated in paprika which are incredible eaten as an appetiser paired with a good wine.
