My love for Gustiamo is no secret, for very high-quality Italian foodstuffs. Also, Supermarket Italy (though the scope of products is much greater) and Buon Italia.

 

For Spanish...

This place has joined my list too...Donostia Foods. I also like La Tienda and Despaña for other Spanish imports.

Over this side of the pond my current favourite is Basco  - they do loads of speciality Spanish meats and charcuterie. Whole suckling pig, milk fed lamb and (at the other end of the age spectrum) 10-12 year old Galician beef from ex-dairy cows:

It’s been great being able to get hold of interesting food this last year, despite having eaten out maybe only 2-3 times.

Yes - I wish I could find a purveyor of the French stuff of my dreams. Instead, I cobble that stuff together from a multitude of sources.

This type of meat was commonly sold mislabeled as if it was Ox, and still probably commonly sold as, specially in restaurants. If the cows had an appropriate life, and they have time to rest and feed for some months after being away from the dairy business, I must say they can be better than most ox (castrated male) from similar life circumstances. Alas, "old cow" does not sell as good as "ox" , and it has been in the last decade or decade and a half when people has started to place this meat on value and use their real name...
