I am a complete appreciator of specialist artisan producers and there refinde as well as important work,producing clean natural flavours all handcrafted foods by very special families throughout spain. The producers flavours of spain work with are exactly my kind of people and all my producers are exactly as devotes as I am about producing something. They are completly passionate, up keeping old traditions of cultivating these unique products and I assure you it is so worth visiting – Ana and Theresa’s PoP UP shop to taste there unique and authentic treasures from Spain.
Spanish goods are in abundance however this particular level of fineness is very rare and flavours of spain represent this niche at it’s best indeed. The secret to there successes you may ask…..is pure pure passion!!!
To be able to offer what they do is very labour intensieve and commands a devoted and passionate commitment that I have not seen anywhere the way Ana and Theresa embody this.
All I can tell you they are here in the uk, they do many activity’s visiting markets near you also occasionally host supper clubs….you must go with some friend as they will host you with charm telling you all about every single products story and with laughter and warmth that will warm anyones cockles.
The shop is so cuite and villagy in a house that feels like an old ship, crooked and full of character.
The little town of Rochester also magically evokes a small resemblance and senses of Galicia Santiago.
Instead of the cathedral they have a caste ruin and a story of medieval wars and world war 2 battles.
Its 30-45 min from London so well worth the trip.
Here is a little report of what foods I had the absolute pleasure of tasting and a little about my day in Rochester:
Ana na Theresa have many little events going on over the next 3 months here in the POP UP take a look at there website.
The shop is closed Sunday’s and Monday’s the shop is open for 3 months.
Pre-christmas and christmas goodies for real foodie’s absolutely delicious.
If you want to come and visit with some friends e-mail Ana and Theresa they can surely organise a tasting afternoon for you. Ana makes incredible galician octopus and the famous squid ink empanada’s and much more.
