Güeyu Mar chargrilled canned foods
When the basis of a project is its passion, it is unlikely to go unnoticed. And behind this project, there is a hungry man. Hunger to do something hitherto unseen. Hunger to reinvent the canning world and change the perception of “eating from tins”.
This is how Abel Álvarez, from his restaurant Güeyumar in Playa de Vega, hit upon the idea of playing with fire.
Literally. The finest seafood are chargrilled, using products of the highest quality which are then canned. A complex and painstaking process, full of searches for marine treasures, patiently awaiting capture before joining the aromas of birch woods, beech, oak and eucalyptus and oils of heavenly textures.
From the grill to the canned, an entire 100% homemade gourmet experience comes into being. Conservas Güeyu Mar’s canned products are created only to satisfy the palates eager for new and creative gastronomic approaches.
RAMÓN PEÑA CONSERVAS
What are Conservas? Surrounded by the cool, clean waters of the Atlantic and the Old World spirit of Spain’s Iberian Peninsula, there is no better place than Galicia for Ramón Peña to have mastered his technique.
He insists on being the first to the morning fish auctions, purchasing only the absolute best of each day’s catch. After cooking in fresh seawater, each offering is hand-packed into tins one tasty morsel at a time. Only small producers like Peña, who use time-tested artisan techniques, are able to capture the intrinsic flavors and preserve the incomparable texture of pristine seafood.
There are so many ways to enjoy tinned seafood, but we like it best right out of the can with freshly baked bread or kettle chips and a glass of my electric wine.
