What is DeliTapas?
Delitapas has been established to promote typical and traditional products of the Maestrazgo region (Castellón-Teruel), with the idea that this economic activity has a positive impact on this region, helping to curb the depopulation that suffer the communities in the mountainous region of Castellón and Teruel, and give back to this wonderful spot of Spain the value it deserves.
My idea gradually took shape and I began to select the most representative family businesses and cooperatives of the region, taking into account the quality, the elaboration process and a good presentation, with the aim of promoting Maestrazgo and its products throughout Europe.
The Maestrazgo or El Maestrat, as it is called in the local language, is a historical region of Spain stretching from the north of the Valencian province of Castellón to the southeast of the Aragonese province of Teruel. The hot summers and cold winters create a special climate, which makes it the cradle of delicacies such as truffles and olive oil from thousand-year-old olive trees of the Farga variety, both of which combine perfectly with each other and are the most famous and popular gastronomic representatives. But there is much more .…
On this website you will find everything you need for the elaboration of small delicacies and tapas that should not be missing on any table. I invite you to this culinary tour through the Maestrat, and to delight or to please others with their small pleasures in a sustainable, simple, safe and fast way. Here I have wide range of high quality products perfect to taste and of course, to give away, because I can advise you on each of the products so that you can enjoy them to the maximum.

All shipments of fresh truffle are made to order. As a fresh and highly perishable product, fresh truffle orders DO NOT ALLOW RETURNS. Once your truffle is ready for shipping, the delivery time for the peninsula or center of Europe is usually 24 hours.
Important information for buying fresh truffle:
Orders will be shipped daily, from Monday to Thursday inclusive, during the fresh truffle season (December to March), upon receipt of the copy of the payment receipt. No fresh truffle will be sent, with proof of payment being received later than 12:00 o´clock on Wednesday, thus avoiding undeliverable shipments before the weekend.
Very important: Make sure that in the provided delivery address the package can be delivered in the morning, until 15:00 hours. We will not be responsible for the fact that the courier agency was at the address and could not deliver the goods.
EXCESS of fresh truffle
Once received the truffle should be kept in the refrigerator between 4 and 5 ºC, since a truffle preserved in optimal conditions can be used between 10 and 12 days after its collection. If it is not expected to be used during this period, I advise to freeze hermetically.
All other products are made on request, as I do not work with stocks of these products to always guarantee the highest quality and freshness.
Once picked by the transport agency, the delivery time for the peninsular shipments from the exit of our warehouse to the place of destination, ranges between 24h and 48h. This is subject to the transport company and the destination of the merchandise. The transport company that we use is SEUR/DPD and UPS and the service we hire is urgent shipping for truffles, and standard shipping for the rest of the products. Delivering before 14 o’clock the shipment usually is of 24 h, reason why the majority of orders are received in 24 h after the exit of the warehouse.
It should be considered that this is alien to delitapas.com and is subject to external factors such as climatology, festivities, Christmas, etc. I promise to also resolve any impact on the delivery of shipments as soon as possible.
