Gourmet Spotting is a gourmet food subscription box that sends 4 to 6 gourmet products a month curated around a theme. Gourmet Spotting sent me a previous box to give an example of their offerings. The August box included items to make Spanish Tapas! The information sheet gave a great running commentary of how to use each item and its special features.

Everything in the box looked delicious and authentic. There were some surprises in here!

Mariajesus Piquillo Peppers ($9) No water added to these! They are picked at the peak of the season and then roasted. I love these. They are so flavorful and can be used a variety of ways.

Campomar Nature Organic Pickled Garlic ($8?) With lemon and oregano, you can put it out straight up for tapas or use it in a dish.

Romanico Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Arbequina Olives ($15) I love a good olive oil and the evoos from arbequina olives are some of the best! I prefer to dip/dress with this oil

La Dalia Pimentón de La Vera ($5.50) The original and best brand of Paprika, I was surprised and really happy to see the HOT version! Love this – I always get the sweet kind so the spicy was very welcome!

Campomar Nature Organic Sweet Olive Oil Tortas ($5) Olive oil cakes seasoned with anise with sugar amply scattered on top. My kids didn’t like these, but I did! They were flaky, crispy, and the anise enhanced rather than overpowered.  Maybe these are super region specific or I never bothered to order them at a tapas joint, but I’ve never eaten them and they are obsession worthy!

The August Gourmet Spotting included $42.50 of gourmet, mostly organic products all from Spain! I was really pleased by this box, it was super delicious.
