Did you know that they have Taco Fridays in Sweden? Who knew that Mexican food featured so prominently in Swedish food culture.
I learnt this fact at the recent Taste Emporium hosted by Santa Maria, the Swedish owned food brand. The Taste Emporium was an interactive showcase of some of their new products.
They took over Discovery foods a few years ago and are now rebranding in the UK. Santa Maria are introducing some new Mexican products into UK supermarkets like whole dried Ancho Chillies and dried Chipotle (currently available in Tescos). This is quite interesting as it was really difficult to find in London, unless you go to Borough Market.
They also have a range of other chillies and spices in jars and bottles, from ready made sauces to spice jars with inbuilt grinders. I especially like Spice Explosion which is a mix of chillies and other seasonings.
Am looking forward to the launch of their Umami spice in the summer.
