Rooted Foods are authentic, native foods that are created by small, community-based producers. They represent a community, a region and a way of life. By purchasing Rooted Foods we are directly strengthening the social, environmental and economic fiber of the community which produces these authentic foods; foods that are native to the producer’s region and are historically part of the regional food culture. Rooted Foods thus encourages healthier, more stable and more self-sufficient local communities and economies worldwide.

Gourmet Delights is proud to carry Rooted Foods in a continuing effort to support small producers worldwide who create fabulous, small scale, regionally unique products.

While taste is our first criteria, if it doesn't taste fantastic nothing else matters, we also love the fact that:

  • Small producers are the foundation of a local economy and we want to support them so they can continue producing these wonderful foods.
  • Small producers grow genetically diversified products. Heirloom and Heritage breeds are kept alive and thriving in their native regions.
  • Small producers are part of their communities and thus are true guardians of the land and environment.
  • Small communities benefit from an embedded, traditional way of food production. Global food crises can be averted by supporting local producers.
  • Culturally, these small production, heritage breeds are tied to generations old recipes and traditions that are part of the world's ancestry and need to be preserved for future generations.

The Rooted Foods Seal ensures that the food you purchase is produced by a privately held company that is rooted in its local community and is invested in protecting its local environment. It is a seal of transparency and connects the consumer back to the artisans producing the food with their own hands.

Average rating:

Unlike any other red pepper you have ever tasted, guaranteed! Authentic piquillo peppers originate from the Ribera del Ebro region of Northern Spain. These Organic Piquillo Peppers, meaning "little beak" for their distinctive pointed shape, are picked and produced almost entirely by hand. Slow roasting over open wood fires gives these unique peppers a complex, rich, and teasingly spicy-sweet flavor.

Piquillo Peppers are very versatile and can be used in many applications. Try cooking, roasting, or sautéing with them. Put them in salads, or stuff them with tuna or other favorite foods.

Navarra is known for big ripe juicy vegetables. It is also the home of the running of the bulls and the St. Fermin festival in which the Cabazones or big heads are worn throughout the streets. Our Matiz Navarro piquillos displays one of these well known symbols of Navarra.

Aji Panca Organic Chili Pods (dried)
Aji Panca Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

One of the most common types of aji (chili) in Peru, aji panca is 3 to 5 inches in length and has a thick flesh that matures from a green to dark red in color. Distinct from the other ajis in its spiciness, aji panca is mild in heat intensity (a heat level of 2 on a scale of 10; 1,500 Scoville units) and provides a fruity, berry-like flavor that goes well in stews, sauces and fish dishes.

Aji panca is so sweet, so berry-like, that it can be finely chopped or ground into a powder and tossed into foods to add a sweet, mild heat.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.

Aji Amarillo Organic Chili Pods (dried)
Aji Amarillo Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

Aji amarillo, or amarillo chili, is the most common type of aji and is one of the most important ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It has a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10 (50,000 Scoville units). It is great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and is used to season nuts.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat, unlike poblanos or jalapenos which can be harsh. It is a very versatile chili, suitable for everyday use as it will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

Try them in these recipes:

  • Ceviche Con Tostones
  • Organic Aji Amarillo Chile Rellenos
  • Peruvian Inspired Chicken Stew

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.

Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."

The Bonito del Norte is the most valued member of the tuna family - highly appreciated for its white flesh, exquisite flavor, and delicate texture.

It is fished using traditional hook and line methods, thus preserving the wonderful texture and flavor which is often lost when fishing with nets. Only the best of the catch is selected to ensure exceptional taste, freshness, and quality. This dolphin-free tuna from the Basque region of Spain (Bay of Biscay in northern Spain) is then gently cleaned by hand.

This exceptional white meat tuna has the solid texture, and hearty flavor, of Bonito tuna which is very different from albacore. It is packed in high-quality Spanish olive oil for extra flavor, and is all natural, with no additives or preservatives.

We use it for tuna sandwiches, stuffing piquillo peppers, on salads, paired with grilled fennel, and on crackers for appetizers.

Please click on the product image to read the customer reviews
Average rating:

Piment d’Espelette is famous for its modulated, food-friendly heat as well as its "sweet red pepper" perfume, which bring wonderful layers of flavor to your dishes.

The A.O.P. (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) designation means that this coveted spice can come only from the tiny, 22-square-kilometer region in and around Espelette, the French Basque town in a hilly, verdant region near Bayonne. The restricted area and precarious weather conditions of the Basque region limit the supplies of this precious spice.

Commercial cultivation of this spice originally began as a product of housewives’ gardens. Women grew the peppers in small quantities for home meals and sold the excess for pocket money. In fact, Marie-Jeanne, the mother of our producer at La Maison du Piment, Vincent Darrichion, was one of those women! She launched her family into the espelette business from her own kitchen garden.

The entire harvest is done by hand. The toil begins in late March, when the seeds must be sprouted in the greenhouse. Then in April, the seedlings are teased apart and placed into individual pots where they are tended in the greenhouse until they are about 18 inches tall. When the size is right, they are hand planted in the field. The peppers are like "indeterminate" tomatoes in that they ripen over a period of time. So the harvest can take a month or more, with many passes through the fields, as the farmer individually snaps or cuts the stem of each ripe pepper, being very careful to keep the top of the pepper intact so it will not be subject to rot. After the harvest, the peppers go back to the greenhouse where they are sun/air dried on wooden trays. The final step in this artisanal slow-drying process involves stacking these trays in a low-temperature oven for several hours to achieve the perfect texture.

The A.O.P. rules strictly govern the growing area, cultivation practices, drying protocol, and the size (mesh) of the Espelette powder itself. A.O.P. thus guarantees you are getting authentic Piment d'Espelette!

  • Mix with sea salt, paprika, and cumin, rub over a pork chop or loin, and bake.
  • Add Piment d’Espelette and a little lemon juice to your favorite mayonnaise. Dip fried potatoes or steamed artichokes in it.
  • Add it to your popcorn butter for a new twist on a classic snack.
  • Use it to season creamy roasted red pepper soup.
  • Season baked, roasted, or mashed potatoes.... sprinkle it on your french fries!
  • Season chicken or pork.

The belly or "Ventresca" of the Bonito del Norte Tuna is the tastiest, fattiest, and tenderest part of the fish. It is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! It presents a much lighter and sweeter palate than the rest of the flesh of the fish, and is considered an exquisite delicacy.

Leaf Lard (FatWorks)
Leaf Lard (FatWorks) Be the first one to write a review

This is quite possibly the finest lard available. It is rendered from the the prized "leaf" (internal fat which contains no meat muscle) which makes it less "porky" tasting than regular lard. This amazing lard is delicate, light, and mild tasting. Bakers have cherished Leaf Lard because it creates the best crusts and cakes while not imparting any flavor of its own. Leaf Lard also has a high smoke point (375F), making it perfect for frying and sauteing, especially when you want the natural flavors of your ingredients to shine. Fat Works Pure Premium Pasture Raised Leaf Lard is essential for anyone interested in cooking with traditional fat.

We proudly announce our 100% Grass Fed, Pasture Raised Lamb Tallow. If you don't know about Lamb Tallow keep reading as this is one baa-d tallow. Some people find that lamb, in general, has a flavor that many in the west find a bit bit overpowering. But when it comes to the tallow itself, there is very little "gaminess" and it is in fact a traditional fat with a very subtle, mild (and did we mention delicious) flavor, making it ideal for sauteing your favorite leafy greens, roasting vegetables, and pan frying any and all meat. Lamb Tallow adds a piquant depth to soups and stews and of course, let us never forget the amazing and spudtacular things tallow can do to a potato! In fact, any root vegetable will roast or fry beautifully with Lamb Tallow. It would be easy to go the "meat and potatoes" route, however, if you are up for a little culinary adventure we suggest baking with Lamb Tallow, only because it makes for some of the most delicious, savory pies! And we didn't even mention the whole new world of Middle Eastern cuisine that is just a jar away with Lamb Tallow. (This beloved tallow is even used as a secret ingredient in traditional baklava recipes.)

Tallow is really as versatile as you make it. It is even used to make great lotions and soap.

Chicken Fat/Schmaltz - Organic (FatWorks) Be the first one to write a review

If you don't know Schmaltz you are about to enter a whole new world of delicious cooking. No joke.

Schmaltz has been used in Ashkenazi Jewish cooking for generations and we are proud to bring this incredible fat to you! (As an aside the Ashkenazi Jewish population is known for having one of the most heart healthy communities in the world.)

Nothing really compares to Schmaltz. It has the richness of duck fat but with a milder and more aromatic flavor. Schmaltz adds complexity to a variety of dishes that you simply cannot reproduce any other way. Schmaltz is a joy to cook with and is the easiest way to add depth and complexity to leafy vegetables, stir fries, pan fried steaks, fish, poultry, soups, stews, baked goods, and for a special treat spread it right on a piece of bread like you would a high quality butter or fine olive oil. It's no exaggeration to say Schmaltz gives potatoes and other root vegetables a flavor that is beyond anything most of us have experienced. If potatoes could talk to schmaltz they would say, "You complete me!" FatWorks Chicken Schmaltz is made with 100% Organic Free Range Chicken (which ain't easy to find!) and is rendered with the typical care and passion that you would expect from FatWorks.

If you would like to learn more about the joys of cooking with schmaltz we recommend that you pick up a copy of Michael Rulhman's quintessential book on schmaltz entitled, "The Book of Schmaltz-A Love Song to A Forgotten Fat."
