TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
These small bread sticks, made in the traditional way, are made with high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, making them a delightful combination of subtly salty and sweet. They’re deliciously crunchy, and shaped like adorable tiny loaves of bread, giving you a firm bite and nice balance of flavor.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Enjoy your Los Gorriones Panificadora Picos Camperos as tapas or appetizers, served with dips like this La Cuna Wild Mushrooms Pate and White Truffle Spread, or the La Cuna Tapenade.

FROM THE SEAS TO TAPAS BARS
A typical and traditional Spanish snack, the Picos Campaneros finds its origins in Sevilla, in the region of Andalucia. Born out of an abundance of olive oils in Spain at the time, these dry, crunchy sticks were originally consumed by sailors on their long trips at sea. They are most popular in Jerez, a city in the Andalucian region, where you will be typically served it in tapas bars and restaurants.
