Despana Brand Foods

Despana Brand FoodsTapas restaurants are very popular and crowded these days so it’s time to take it to the next level by hosting your own tapas party at your pad. Now, this isn’t going to be some boring chorizo and oversweetened sangria affair. You’ve got to do it right and have your guests thinking they’ve landed in Barcelona.

Despana Brand Foods has everything you need to make your next tapas party the real deal. From whole legs of imported Jamon Serrano to variously aged Manchego cheese, Despana has all the delicacies. The Cheeky is partial to the whole leg of jamon, which can last for a few months and makes a great centerpiece when you purchase the wooden stand. Of course, if you’re buying a whole pig leg, you’ve got to get the stand. This is not amateur hour.

Other fine Spanish foods offered by Despana include white asparagus, a wide selection of olive oils, jams and marmalades, marinated anchovies, seafood paella kits, and of course, about 20 types of chorizo. You can’t go wrong with anything, and if you can make it to their shop in Queens or Manhattan, you can get a taste before you buy.

Despana is currently redoing their website, but you can see a full list of their goods here (PDF).
