Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN SEBASTIáN, Spain - Aug 04, 2017 - Mimo, the pioneering culinary tourism company, launches MM, its debut line of eight gourmet Spanish products. MM means Made with Mimo, and this artisan collection from Spain features products totally hand picked, handmade, and hand packed, ready to enjoy in homes across the world. This carefully selected range reflects some of the most delicious, special flavors the experts at Mimo have found in their culinary travels across all of Spain.
The newly launched MM range includes eight of the most delicious, typical Spanish foods:
SPANISH OLIVES / ACEITUNAS : Our mixture includes our favorites, collected by hand: Gordal, Empeltre, and Zorzaleña olives.
SPANISH GARLIC MAYONNAISE / ALIOLI : Our alioli is from Cataluña, and it is made with only oil, garlic, salt, and lemon juice—totally natural.
SPICY ESPELETTE PEANUTS / CACAHUETES CON ESPELETTE : A perfect pre-meal snack, our peanuts have a spicy Espelette pepper kick, right at home next to olives and a cold drink.
PICKLED BASQUE PEPPERS / GUINDILLAS: Our guindillas are grown outdoors, with only sun and rain, before being hand-harvested and hand-packed, an incredibly artisan, local product.
ORANGE FLOWER HONEY / MIEL DE AZAHAR : Its flavor makes it a favorite of ours and across the Iberian peninsula, where it is considered the “queen” of the honeys. The lovely, light color means it is as beautiful as it is delicious.
WOOD-FIRED ‘CRYSTAL’ PEPPERS / PIMIENTOS DE CRISTAL : Our ‘crystal’ peppers, so named for its thin, delicate skin that is full of flavor, have been roasted over an open flame, lending them a smoky flavor. Harvested, roasted, peeled and packed by hand, they are a hard-to-find artisan product.
CANDIED SUNFLOWER SEEDS / PIPAS ACARAMELADAS : This is our artisan version of the typical Spanish street vendor’s offering, sunflower seeds in a mixture of honey and sugar until the perfect point of caramelization is reached.
CATALÁN ROMESCO DIP / ROMESCO : Romesco is one of our favorite foods, and ours is made with a traditional recipe: almonds and hazelnuts grown in Cataluña, ripe tomato and the dried ñora pepper.
The product line is available for purchase online at food.mimofood.com, exclusively in the United Kingdom at Selfridges, and at the Mimo shops across Spain, with more locations coming soon.
