To Our Customers:
It is difficult for me to think about it being mid year, mid-summer. Where did the time go? But here we are, looking toward enjoying warm weather, different foods, lots of fresh vegetables, and other delights. This newsletter has delicious items in it: foodstuffs and wines. I hope you will try some, if not all, of them. I know you will enjoy the experience.
We have just received a new shipment of our exclusive Consorcio tuna and other fish specialties from Spain. Back in stock are the tiny Sardinillas, wild caught from the Rias Gallegas, the “fjords” on Spain’s Atlantic coast in the region of Galicia. Seven to ten little sardines per tin, these are very special and once you taste them, you might wonder why you’ve never liked sardines before. These are a revelation!
Likewise are the Consorcio Platinum Selection Anchovies, fished from the top of Spain in the Bay of Biscay. Just when the thought of anchovies turns you off, Consorcio comes along and can turn you into a lover of anchovies. This is what they are all about: giving flavor and punch to whatever they’re paired with. A tin of Seleccion Platino anchovies, opened and the anchovies removed, marinated for several hours with new extra virgin oil, freshly chopped parsley and good garlic, and a half a loaf of good bread will make a regal feast.
Consorcio produces two tunas, both line caught in the Bay of Biscay in northern Spain. One is Bonito Del Norte white tuna, (Thunnus alalunga) the other is ATÚN yellowfin or light tuna (Thunnus albacares).
Bonito Del Norte is fished with rods and hooks in Cantábria from July to October. The tuna is fished one by one, and is dolphin safe. There is no unacceptable “by catch.” Bonito del Norte is the most flavorful and soft textured tuna. Its meat color is the palest of the tunas and the only one that can be called “white.”
Bonito Del Norte white tuna is available in several different packs: chunk style, loins, and ventresca.
Chunk Style Tuna: Round, pull top opening tins of solid white meat, pink in color, delicate scent and flavor.
Loins (Filetti) Tuna:
