The preeminent purveyor in Burgundy, Henri Maire, has been satisfying the most discriminating palates in France since 1938.

These savory delights are then hand-sorted by size, washed, and cooked in an aromatic bouillon according to the same ancestral standards used in 1938. These snails are treated and cooked according to the strictest hygienic standards (HAACP Certified) and are delivered to you in perfect condition.

These exquisite anchovies, packed in the finest Spanish olive oil, are hand-packed according to traditional methods using carefully selected fresh fish harvested off the Cantabrian Coast in northern Spain.

The anchovy, a traditional food of the Basque Country, is a mainstay of this region's fishing economy. The Spanish name "boqueron" comes from the size of the anchovy's mouth or boca, which is large in proportion to the rest of the body. Anchovies are typically harvested in the spring when they accumulate the most fat and flavor. Small nets are used to protect the quality of the fish and reduce by-catch. Once caught they are gutted, placed in barrels with salt-layer separations and weighted. Once the fish has matured, about 3-7 months, it is washed to remove bones and skin, and canned with high quality olive oil.

Anchovies are high in Omega-3 fatty acids which help in the prevention of cardio-vascular disease and reduce cholesterol. They are also rich in iodine, calcium, Vitamins A, D, B12, B6, B2 and unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid.

  • 100% natural.
  • No preservatives or chemical additives.
  • This product has been produced free of soy, gluten, nuts, dairy, and genetically engineered ingredients.

Ingredients: Anchovies, olive oil, salt.

Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."

The belly or "Ventresca" of the Bonito del Norte Tuna is the softest and most delicate part of the fish. It presents a much lighter and sweeter palate than the rest of the flesh of the fish, and is considered an exquisite delicacy.

Bonito del Norte is found in the coastal waters of the Bay of Biscay in the Basque region of Spain during the summer season when they come north to dine on the Cantabrian Anchovy. The Bonito del Norte is the most valued member of the tuna family, highly appreciated for its white flesh, exquisite flavor, and delicate texture. This Ortiz specialty is fished using artisanal fishing techniques with the philosophy that we must preserve our earth and its resources. Each tuna is individually line caught and not netted. They are fully dolphin safe.

Within 24 hours of being caught,the best belly fillets are selected, cooked in seawater, and then hand-packed in olive oil to keep them moist and flavorful.

savini_sliced_black_truffle.jpg Savini Sliced Black Truffle

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Starting in the 1920s, and continuing to this day, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has spanned over four generations.

During the harvest, the truffle gatherers collect both large and small truffles. The biggest ones are sold fresh to restaurants, while the smaller ones, with equally impressive flavor, are sliced, and through a very special proprietary method, preserved in olive oil. The flavor is identical to the fresh truffles, with the added benefit that you can keep them unopened in your kitchen for more than a year, and thus can have "fresh truffle flavor" anytime on a moment's notice.

These sliced black truffles are of the highest quality, and the Savini family ensures the origin of each and every truffle. This guarantees both the quality and the freshness. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest truffles available.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some sliced black truffles.
  • Stuff sliced black truffles under the skin of a chicken before roasting.
  • Add some slices to freshly cooked pasta... amazing!
  • A few slices on hot seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Mix them into your risotto 15 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Save the olive oil, and you have authentic truffle oil!

Ingredients: 62% Italian black truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), olive oil, salt, aroma, garlic, aromatic herbs, spice.

The Griottines® recipe uses the special Oblachinska Morello Cherry. This cherry is only grown in the Balkans, and is known for its unique taste. During harvest each cherry is hand-picked, leaving the stalk behind. A rigorous sort process selects the best cherries, and within 6 hours of harvesting the first maceration occurs. This artisanal process, and attention to detail, preserves the special flavor and physical properties of the cherries. The Morello cherries, and the liqueur, through natural osmosis, become something magical. Another sort process selects only the perfect cherries. The pit of each cherry is then carefully removed through the hole left by the missing stalk. The cherries look whole but do not have the pit. These depitted cherries are then macerated in different liqueurs for different time periods based on a secret, traditional recipe. They are delivered to you for maximum enjoyment!

Caviar Connoisseurs will certainly appreciate this delicious and creamy caviar with a color ranging from dark-brown to grey and light amber. The roe is a medium-large size. This is a 100% real "Malossol" style (from the Russian word which means "low in salt") caviar.

Opening a Calvisius caviar tin is an emotion: since the first moment, when you look at the medium-sized, dark amber roe, you know it’s not a regular caviar but a first-class product. This is the reason why top airlines companies such as Lufthansa serve Calvisius during their flights. That nutty smell is just an anticipation of the taste: a creamy and extraordinarily soft-tasting caviar, lightly fruity and sweet. Feel the delicate "poppy effect" on the palate, then wait for the taste explosion all through your mouth.

Caviar Connoisseurs will certainly appreciate this delicious and creamy caviar with a color ranging from dark-brown to grey and light amber. The roe is a medium-large size. This is a 100% real "Malossol" style (from the Russian word which means "low in salt") caviar.

Opening a Calvisius caviar tin is an emotion: since the first moment, when you look at the medium-sized, dark amber roe, you know it’s not a regular caviar but a first-class product. This is the reason why top airlines companies such as Lufthansa serve Calvisius during their flights. That nutty smell is just an anticipation of the taste: a creamy and extraordinarily soft-tasting caviar, lightly fruity and sweet. Feel the delicate "poppy effect" on the palate, then wait for the taste explosion all through your mouth.

Back in stock April 2014.

1888 is made by using a one-ton press to extract the juice from whole Spanish olives. That's it:

  • no additives
  • no fillers
  • just real olive flavor without the salty aftertaste

1888 is so pure that it has 60% less sodium content than other "martini juices". You get to enjoy the healthy benefits of olives and, of course, the delicious pure olive taste.

There are OTHER mixers on the market but if you look at the ingredients, you will be hard pressed to find one that is actually made from olives. The majority of the OTHER products you see on the market are nothing more than three ingredients: Water, Salt and Lactic Acid. Where are the OLIVES in these other mixes? I want my martini with olives, not salt water. And the liquid in the olive jar is nothing more than this salt water with a hint of olive flavor from the olives that are sitting in it.

1888 is created through a special process which presses the olives in order to extract the true flavor from the Spanish olives.

  • Perfect for your dirty martini (of course!).
  • Use it as a marinade for chicken.

Contains no alcohol.

belazu_rose_harissa_paste.jpg Belazu Rose Harissa


Back in stock Summer 2014.

Rose petals are one of over fourteen (14) spices added to give this Belazu Rose Harissa paste its complex and spicy taste. Harissa was originally a staple of Tunisian cooking but now it is used throughout North Africa as a seasoning. The rose petals provide a counter point to the chili heat, adding a richness and complexity you are sure to enjoy.

Harissa is perfect for adding to traditional North African tagines, and for stirring into couscous. However, this is such an extremely versatile product so do not restrict its use to only traditional North African recipes. You can use it as an added seasoning like salt and pepper to add complexity to your meals, and as a dip for bread, crackers, and vegetables.

  • Add a teaspoon to your pasta sauces.
  • Stir a dollop into soups to for an exotic finishing touch.
  • It makes a perfect marinade for chicken breasts when combined with some extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
  • It is fantastic smothered over grilled meats, poultry, fish, and roasted vegetables.
  • Stir some into yogurt or relish to serve as an accompaniment to your meals.
  • Combine a spoonful of harissa with several tablespoons of creme fraiche and some coriander for an instant dip.

belazu_preserved_lemons.jpg Belazu Beldi Preserved Lemons


Back in stock Summer 2014.

Preserved doqq lemons are an authentic, and essential, component of many North African, Mediterranean, and Indian recipes.

These traditional doqq lemons (Citrus limonum Risso var. pusilla R), known in Morocco as citron beldi, or l'hamd beldi, grow in the Taroudant region outside of Agadir.

The thinner skin, and fragrant aroma, of doqq lemons, makes them the most highly prized lemons of North Africa. Paula Wolfert, an expert on Moroccan cuisine, considers them the crème de la crème in her book "The Food of Morocco".

These lemons have a delicate "zing", along with a tantalizing sweet and sour aroma, that is unmistakably and evocatively North African.

A few serving ideas:

  • Add these lemons to tagines, roast chicken, fish, salsas, and salads - all kinds of Mediterranean cooking, to get that delicate citrus flavor.
  • Make a traditional Moroccan Tagine.
  • Create your own Ngam nguv, a traditional Cambodian chicken soup with whole preserved lemons.
  • Combine them in your recipes that use olives, artichokes, seafood, veal, chicken, and rice for added flavor and complexity.
  • Use them as an accompaniment to curd rice, which is often the last course in South Indian Cuisine.
  • Add the pickled pulp and liquid to Bloody Marys and other beverages where lemon and salt are used.
  • Combine preserved lemons with horseradish if you want to make an American-style cocktail sauce.

No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
