We work with the small family producer Estilo Kiki in Valencia, Spain to bring you this gorgeous Matiz Sofrito. Their handmade sofrito is the first step to an authentic paella. The tomatoes have been slow roasted in olive oil for over three hours, producing a flavorful shortcut to making paella in much less time. The sofrito can be added to the paella pan just prior to adding the rice and other ingredients. It’s also ideal as a sauce for meats, fish, eggs, and pasta, and makes a great base for cioppino.
This producer has been making tomato-based sauces in the region of Valencia for over 25 years. The recipes have been passed down through the generations, and their core principles of fresh, all-natural ingredients have remained the same.
