“Tinned Gourmet”

The Elle Spanish edition featured several beautiful cans from Tricana, Minor, Prata do Mar, José Gourmet, Minerva, Porthos, Pinhais, Santa Catarina, praising these delicacies and their beautiful package designs.

“The tins invasion”

The Spanish newspaper El Pais published an article about how fashionable canned fish is nowadays and doesn’t forget to mention the high quality Portuguese products. They also write (though too briefly I must say) about the famous restaurant Can the Can in Lisbon, which prepares wonderful dishes with these Portuguese delicacies.

“One of the world’s best chefs always has canned fish at his home..what about you?”

Daniel Boulud, a multi-michelin-world renowned-french chef gave an interview to Yahoo food and when asked about the must-have food products at his home…he answered canned fish of course (that and salt, a selection of vinegars, some fancy oils, a bunch of different types of mustard and French charcuterie)! He even provided a quick recipe using canned fish.

“Gold Medal for Santa Catarina”

The brand Santa Catarina has already a nice collection of awards, but they managed to take home five more at 4th Concurso Nacional de Conservas de Pescado – Portugal (Canned Fish Portuguese National Contest), including the gold medal for the new Tuna Fillet with Pepper from the Azores.  Can’t wait to try it!

“Items we love right now”

Hopefully they keep loving them afterwards too! The Bela – Portuguese Sardines in Spring Water are in the list of the Cooking Light – editor’s picks!
