What are gourmet foods?
What do you imagine when you hear the word "gourmet"? Some people associate it with expensive and higher-quality products. Although this word of French origin is used to describe those dishes of progressive elaboration, the truth is that for a product to be considered gourmet, it must have some specific characteristics, such as the following:
- Be made with exquisitely selected ingredients of the highest quality.
- Possess organoleptic properties
- Comply with the highest safety and hygiene standards.
However, gourmet foods are not necessarily the most expensive and exclusive, but those that come from a respectable production or harvest are made only by haute cuisine professionals.
