Spanish Paella & Tapas Gourmet Gift Box
Ahh, Spain. From party-loving Barcelona, mountainous and exotic Basque country, all the way down to syncretic, sun-drenched Andalusia, Spain's varied culture, climate, and terrain, coupled with an almost religious reverence for tasty food, make Spanish food one of the most distinctive and divine culinary expressions in the world. Here at eku Box, we decided to give these delicacies a one-way, first-class ticket to your door with our Spanish Paella and Tapas Gourmet Gift Box. A traditionally made paella pan from Spain is included along with the best imported Spanish ingredients to make a briny and bountiful seafood paella with crispy Socorrat and a medley of rich, Imberico chorizo and Sorrano loin tapas. All you have to do is add the seafood! Wash down your delicious, homemade paella with a pitcher of craft sangria, as we include the sangria starter. This gift box will be your own invitation to party.
We've also included the stunning cookbook of Spanish recipes - Cúrate, by chef and restaurateur Kattie Button. It will help ensure you keep the good times rolling. Oh and the recipe for our amazing paella is included too.
This is a great Birthday gift, Anniversary gift, Housewarming gift, Holiday gift, an amazing gift for the foodie...
