Meet Spanish Gastro Larder founder
My name is Elena, I’m originally from urban Barcelona area and spent all my summers in Mas de Barberans and San Juan de Alicante villages playing with my siblings surrounded by olive and almond trees.
I follow a Mediterranean diet cooking from scratch with plenty of extra virgin olive oil , vegetables, fruits and a variety of meats , fish and pulses with a glass of wine to compliment. My father was a doctor and always encouraged us to cook with good fresh ingredients and avoid excessive processed foods.
I moved to London in 2010 when the gastronomic boom started and participated in many wine tastings and searched for the option of olive oil tasting as there were many varieties of olives and had heard their taste changes. I was curious to test if I could appreciate the differences between varieties, producers and countries. I decided to take courses in London with Judy Ridgway a Certified professional in olive oil tasting in 2017. I was amazed by the complexity of the flavours, tasting technique, hard work behind the extraction of the juice, the history and the future applications in gastronomy and wellbeing. I started reading more about it and took further studies in Spain in 2018 with Extra Virgin Alliance under an IRTA programme, covering tasting technique, production process and impact on health and gastronomic uses.
In 2019 I took further tastings with Judy Ridgway. I decided to set up a business sourcing the best extra virgin olive oil producers from Spain and import them into UK, to delight our senses and boost our health and wellbeing.
I run several market stalls in London where I sell olives , the best extra virgin olive oils and other delicious Spanish products with the olive tree and almond trees as a main source of ingredient. You can also find best cured meats and fish products to add to your diet or gift to your family, friends and employees.
I hope that you love the selection of extra virgin olive oils and other products in our range as much as I do. Rest assured they delight your meals and boost your health. Salud!
