Picos breadsticks are a classic part of the tapas culture of Spain, a crunchy complement to the tasty small plates that are at the center of Spanish tapas. Camperos style picos are shaped like tiny loaves of bread, and have a firm bite and perfect saltiness. Serve them with cured Serrano ham, aged Spanish cheese or a bowl of tapenade along with a refreshing glass of beer or wine.
We work with a small company in Andalucía that makes picos the traditional way, with extra virgin olive oil. They have a great crunch and a flavor that transports us back to Spain.
Camperos are most popular in the area of Jerez, home of the classic sherry of Spain. When you sit down at a tapas bar or restaurant in the area, a plate of these small, crisp picos is sure to be served.
These camperos make for a simple, delicious snack on their own. Pour some in a bowl at your next get-together and you will find they are the perfect compliment to dips and other tapas appetizers. Try the authentic taste of Spanish camperos picos!
