Paisa is a family-forged dream that has become a reality of heritage, heartiness and great taste. A passion passed on through the love of great food.
From the 1970s, Colombian migrants have enriched the culture of food and family in Australia. Bringing the flavours of their local family gatherings, they continued to trade recipes in the heart of Melbourne to create what has become a simmering Colombian food movement.
Paisa refers to the north-western region of the South American nation, which is the true birth place for this range of delicious salsas, or Aji (said A-he) as they are better known.
Colombian mother, grandmother and matriarch, Gilma Gomez, is the inspiration behind this range. Whilst lovingly feeding her family into adulthood she has shared her passion for iconic Colombian flavours of home with many new friends.
Today the dream becomes a reality - with Gilma's range of salsas now available to your family.
Paisa's Aji comes in three strengths of heat and brings a very unique flavour to enhance your meats, pastries, soups and stews.
