Gloversville, NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Pata Negra LLC, a specialty sausage maker from Spain, adds a new White Chorizo to its line of specialty pork sausages, called Imperial. Produced out of their state of the art facility in upstate New York, Imperial’s White Chorizo, also referred to as Vela Blanco, is crafted true to ancient Spanish recipes, recipes that were used before red peppers came back from the new world in the 16th century. As a result, the White Chorizo features a gourmet assortment of premium pork meat, garlic and other hand-selected spices and exhibits a much cooler color than the crimson red chorizos made with paprika.
Fairway Market customers will be offered a first taste of Imperial’s Vela Blanco, along with their Vela Mild and Vela Hot, at the following locations on the dates and times listed below:
The Imperial line is carefully crafted under the guidance of master chorizo-maker Dr. Antonio Libran, a Veterinarian expert with over 30 years of experience in the food and Spanish cured meats industries. The team sources premium American pork meat, the world’s best Spanish paprika and only the finest hand-selected spices. Each features a lengthy, dry-curing process to ensure all natural ingredients season slowly to lend each chub the authentic flair and flavor of old Spain. This Spanish artisan technique versus mass production produces a signature bouquet and texture not found in other chorizo varieties both domestic and imported.
Described in print as “New York’s highest-profile grocer” (New York Magazine), and “the enfant terrible of the fancy food business” (The New York Times), Steve Jenkins rates Imperial chorizo as “the most delicious example of chorizo I’ve ever tasted.”
Imperial’s White Chorizo will be available for purchasing in New York City specialty food stores as well as online the first week of May. For more information about Imperial Chorizo, visit http://www.imperialchorizo.com and http://www.facebook.com/imperialchorizo.
