All countries tend to have this type of Gourmet shops in the larger cities as a general rule or some large supermarkets or shopping centres have their own specific section with a line of gastronomic products considered delicatessen. The truth is that for us in the Iberian Peninsula, many of the products considered gourmet in many countries are part of our weekly diet, such as cured meats, cheeses, virgin and extra virgin olive oil, wines, etc. That is why we are very fortunate to be able to have them within our reach in delicatessens and local shops.
The word gourmet comes from the French "gourmand" which means "gourmand" "good eater". These shops sell all kinds of quality gastronomic products that may not always be available in traditional shops. These shops can stand alone or they can be a part of a supermarket where different products are offered. They can also be found in airports where each city offers tourists the best of the gastronomic culture so that they can take home a souvenir of the city they have visited.
Yes of course you can also find wine and spirits, not all of them have them, but they usually do.
No. And it will always depend on the product and sometimes on the brand. Normally they usually have prices as varied as the products they have. The price of a wedge of Manchego cheese, for example, will not be the same as a bottle of good Brandy, but both will be of good to excellent quality.
Of course, at least in Enrique Tomás shops around the world you will always find the best ham and it doesn't have to be the most expensive. Our range of hams is very wide and you will find hams of all prices and in all formats, so that your pocket will not suffer but your palate will be delighted, because the one you have chosen will be of the best quality in its range.
