Alejandra Blanco Garrido and Nick Ratsey
When we first met, Alejandra and I could barely speak each other’s languages. We got to know each other through food. Both of us have a real love of cooking and we enjoy nothing more than whiling away the hours together in the kitchen. It was this passion for cuisine that set us thinking about business. We were conscious, not only that the Mediterranean diet was becoming more popular in Britain, but also that many of the best ingredients were hard to come by. We formulated a service that would introduce people to new tastes and flavours from around Spain, without them having to spend hours researching and sourcing individual products. And that’s how we arrived at our concept – a place where you’ll find your favourite foods, as well as all manner of tasty goodies and scrumptious delicacies.… a foodies’ larder no less!
