Fishwife Cantabrian Anchovies in Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Regular price $9.00
Say hello to the richest, butteriest anchovies that have ever touched your lips. Made for eating atop a piece of fresh sourdough, slathered in good butter. Our anchovies are: ✨ Caught by small-boat fishermen using the purse seine fishing method in the Cantabrian Sea. ✨ Sourced from Europe's only MSC-certified sustainable anchovy fishery. ✨ Semipreserved through a salt-curing process that lasts for an average of six - eight months. ✨ Handpacked by a third-generation family-owned cannery using a traditional artisanal process perfected over decades. ✨ Packed into tins with premium Spanish extra virgin olive oil, sourced directly from Andalusian farmers.
The term "Fishwife" dates back to the 16th century, and originally referred to the daughters or wives of fishermen who sold fish at the market. The term gradually evolved into gendered insult for women who were brash, foul-mouthed, and brassy.
Fishwife is a new female-founded and led food company aiming to make ethically-sourced, premium, and delicious tinned seafood a staple in every cupboard.
We source from responsibly managed fisheries and aquaculture farms to bring the vibrance of conservas culture to the North American table.
