Red Carabinero Prawns have a long history in the cuisine of Spain's coastal towns. Though associated with Andalusian food, this species actually stretches all the way up to Catalonia in the northeast Spain and is prevalent on Spain's Mediterranean coast.
Iberico Pork comes from black Iberico pigs, native to Spain's Iberian Peninsula, where they are feed acorns in the forest. Due to its unique taste, texture and flavour, it is often referred to as Wagyu of pork.
