Espinaler Appitizer Sauce. 3.1oz bottle. Product of Spain.
From the Espinaler website: "It was in the 1950s, when Joan Tapias was at the forefront of the Espinaler, when his wife, Ventureta Roldós, created a sauce to dress the Galician shellfish preserves that were served in the ‘Taberna’.
Ventureta, well-known in the village as a great lover of cuisine, gathered together the best ingredients to make Espinaler sauce: top-quality wine vinegar, black pepper red pepper and a selection of spices that she never reveals.
The result: an unique sauce that some people have tried to copy but none have achieved. With this product, Espinaler has become an icon around Catalonia. If Espinaler sauce was created as the perfect complement to shellfish preserves, crisps and olives, today consumers of Espinaler confess that they use it for many other things: on salads, on baked cod, on fried eggs, in gazpacho, on potato omelette, with ‘calamares’ in batter, anchovies and even in red vermouth!"
