The land of paella, sangria, and El Encierro (the running of the bulls)

While all of these things are 'Spanish', they fall short of describing the country we know Spain to be: regionally diverse, intensely passionate, and rich in history, customs, and cuisine.

From the hills of San Fermin, where Iberian pigs dot the landscape, to the crustacean-rich waters of the Cantabrian Sea in the North to the white-sand beaches of Andalucia: Spain is a country that begs to be tasted and explored.

Croquetas are a Spanish staple and for good reason: a crispy thin shell of fried breadcrumbs encasing a creamy béchamel flavored with everything from braised oxtail to jamón to wild mushrooms. What's not to like?

This iconic tapa lines the menú of nearly every bar, café, and restaurant across Spain. Each region offers their unique variety of croqueta, often reflecting the traditional dishes and products that make that area special.

We are inspired by these authentic, regional dishes and the people who make them - we hope you will be, too.
