Ronda says, “So Romesco originated in the 15th century in northern Spain. So it has been around for a very long time. There’s no one particular recipe for Romesco, much like Mexico has a variety of salsas. We make our Romesco with California almonds, roasted red pepper, garlic, tomato, spices, olive oil and a little red wine vinegar. It is an all natural, low carb, gluten-free product. It’s vegan, vegetarian as well.”

Today we interview Ronda Catherine Brittian, Co-founder of Ronda’s Fine Foods. Ronda’s Fine Foods is a Petaluma, CA based woman and minority-owned family business, focused on creating unique, small batch, gourmet food items to inspire the discerning home chef.
