Queridos Ladies & Gentelmen,
We are MYSYBARITAS your Spanish Gourmet Food Store in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur
Today we will continue to talk about some of our newly imported Gourmet Preserved Food.
Chickpea, also known as its Spanish name, "garbanzo" is a legume cultivated more than 7000 years BC. It was popular and widely consumed in the ancient Egypt, Spain, Greece, and Rome.
Spanish Chickpeas, on all its varieties, are well recognised in the culinary world, as a true First Class Product.
There are two basic types of chickpeas: desi and kabuli. Desi contains smaller, darker seeds and has more of a rough coat. Kabuli is a larger, lighter colored bean with a smoother coat, Kabuli are the ones mostly cultivated in Europe.
Ours are kabuki venous Andalusian Chickpea, which has much protein, and stands out for its larger size and smooth surface where it has some lines in the form of veins, which is where it gets its name.
This characteristics made them perfect for salads, creams and soups. We find them specially delicious with sunny side up eggs and some chorizo bits.
This Cherry peppers are mildly sweet peppers that are small, round, and red, the is how they get their the name.
Normal Peppers (Pimientos), are heart shaped and less sweeter than their cherry brother. They are seasonal, only for a short period of time during the summer, that is one of the reasons they much appreciated.
Cherry Peppers stuffed with cream cheese are the combination of the sweet touch of the pepper with the delicious flavor of the cheese that makes it an ideal appetizer OR to accompany your meals.
Offering a new possibility for salads, tapas, skewers or appetizers. Present them as is or on tartlets and tasting spoons. Add them to your cold cuts and cheese trays.
They harmonize perfectly with cold cuts, as an accompaniment to Spanish “Jamon, Salchichón, Chorizo, Sobrasada” ... or wrapped in Pork Belly and grilled. We have also tried them with dried fruits, simply topping them with an almond or hazelnut, or passing them through the grill and sprinkled with ground nuts. Battered and fried are yet another delicacy worth trying. Great to garnish fish dishes too!
I hope you enjoyed the article!
Be First Class!
