OUR TEAMMother's Day is just around the corner. It's the perfect time to emphasize your appreciation for her.
"Men are what their mothers made them." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here are some of our gentlemen working in ARC IBERICO IMPORTS and the best item selection from a wide array of Spanish products to surprise their mom.
Javier is our CEO. He has been an excellent business consultant with over ten years of experience. Helping ARC grow and expand by making major corporate decisions, managing our overall operations and resources, and setting future strategies so that we can bring more valuable Spaniard experience to Canada.
"My mother, Elena, was born in Asturias, a northern Spanish province." She used to spend the summers at Cudillero with her aunt Eloina, where they spent a month among friends and family. My mother first tasted "Cigalas" - Spanish Lobster - in a small restaurant near the port on a tiny street where the owner fished and served fresh seafood from the Cantabrico Sea every day. Cigalas have been her favorite dinner since then. "
CIGALAS DE HUELVA - SPANISH LOBSTERThe Cigala or how we would like to call Spanish lobster ( tipically called Norway lobster) is a one-of-a-kind crustacean with a morphology similar to that of the lobster but smaller in size.
Cigala de Huelva is a popular culinary seafood due to its white, soft, and flavorful meat. Its presence and bearing on the table are both spectacular, especially when cooked whole and in one piece.
If you've ever come to our Jamoneria by ARC. Rami is the meritorious chef behind our authentic Spanish cuisine. He dedicates his Spanish culinary expertise to creating appetizing tapas for diners to enjoy.
"Secreto Iberico has always been my top-one choice. Its tenderness and flavorful aroma make me think of my hometown, Malaga, southern Spain. When I think of home, I think of the sparkling coastline of the Costa del Sol and having a BBQ with my family and friends on the beach had been the best moment I couldn't forget.
This is one of the juiciest cuts to be found in any meat-producing animal. It has an evocative texture that is surprising as the very first bite. This piece holds the starring role in pork-based gastronomy. The cut is barely two centimeters thick and it is hidden deep between the pig's two sides of bacon, hence the reason for its curious name - "secret". The marbling of fat is what gives rise to its pink, rosy color and an unbeatable delicious silky texture.
Another vital person of Jamoneria behind the curtain is William, our line cook, in charge of preparing food and setting up other necessary supplies. His optimism always brings a good vibe to our team and a positive attitude to our beloved Iberico community.
"It's hard not to think about how much I love my mom. She's made so many sacrifices for me, and I want to give her the best of everything. That's why I'm particularly excited that I'll be able to surprise her with a gift that has a real value this year: Cinco Jotas, Spain's national treasure, Acorn-Fed 100% Iberico ham!"
CINCO JOTAS 100% IBERICO HAM BELLOTACinco Jotas acorn-fed Ibérico ham is Spain's national treasure. It's an unrivaled product obtained from the rear legs of Ibérico pigs raised free-range in the meadows of southwest Spain.
