Explore The Pairing


Mentioned more than 50 times in the Bible, dates are a fruit filled with historical importance. Originating in the Middle East, these amber-colored fruits have a caramel-like texture and feature a distinctive rich and sweet flavor.


For the best flavor, select dates that are shiny, uniform in color, and not broken.

Maracona Almonds

A shorter, rounder and sweet kernel separates the Marcona almond from other almonds. Its origins are unknown, but Marcona almonds have strong ties to Spanish cooking, traditionally prepared by lightly frying in oil.
