Carquinyolis Sant Quintí - 200g
SKU : 000800030365
On Valerie and Ihsan's 2013 visit to Barcelona, this bright yellow bag of Carquinyolis Sant Quinti de Medion caught their eye in a local food shop. They bought a bag to munch while wandering the streets of the city. One taste and they were hooked. These irresistible cookies are now a staple on our shelves all year round.
The Argemí-Salat family have been making these marvelous carquinyolis, the Spanish equivalent of Italian cantuccini, since 1991 in Sant Quinti de Mediona. They tend to be a bit light, almost meringue-like. Crunchy, studded with almonds and slightly misshapen, they have a delicate, almond flavor and steaks of caramelized sugar. Traditionally served after dinner or as a snack with Cava, Champagne, sweet Moscatel wine or even foie gras, we think they are also perfect with tea, fresh, young goat cheeses, or eaten straight out of the bag while you walk down the street!
