The Goikoa Chorizo Pamplona is a Navarre sausage prepared from finely chopped pork and powerful smoked De La Vera paprika (pimentón). It is created entirely of Spanish ingredients and is painstakingly fermented, cured, and dried to ensure its perfection. It’s also diced for convenience and simplicity of usage.
Embutidos Goikoa’s Chorizo Pamplona has a red-orange tint from the paprika. It tastes tart and salty, with a faint bitterness and moderate spiciness from the paprika.
Goikoa Chorizo Pamplona Mild pairs well with other cured meats and cheeses. You can also use it in sandwiches; try it on ciabatta with several pieces of mozzarella and pesto mayonnaise. Serve with Rioja Crianza or Shiraz.
Eugenio Jimenez began Goikoa in 1929 as a tiny butcher business in Sangüesa, Navarre, Spain. Here, he made his own cold cuts and cured meats, which he sold around the area and established a solid reputation for. Javier Jimenez Goikoa, his son, took over in 1970. Javier was the one who saw beyond the small butcher business and became a meat entrepreneur. He was able to provide significant growth to Goikoa, creating stable roots and progress.
It became a legitimate firm in 1981, renaming itself Embutidos Goikoa S.A. and starting a commercial brand that has since grown steadily. They began worldwide exports and expansion in 2005, offering Goikoa to the global market. Eugenio’s descendants carry on his passion and goal, sharing it with the rest of the globe.
This type of sausage may be stored for up to 6 weeks in the refrigerator (whole or in vacuum-packed slices). After opening, they should be used within 3 weeks.
