"A Pulpeira" was born as a result of the continuation of the family business of "pulpeiro and pulpeira" that our ancestors practiced at fairs and festivals in Galicia for more than 100 years. This trade, passed from parents to children, was born in O Carballiño, Ourense, birthplace of the best "pulpeiros and pulpeiras" of Galicia, creators of the "octopus to the fair" recipe. Our origin, therefore, marks us to try to undertake A mission, a new way of cooking the octopus, that manages to maintain and enhance all its flavor and quality. That is why we set in motion a process of research and development of a new method of cooking, based on the knowledge acquired during the years of the octopus and its cooking, together with the new technologies of aliment.Fruto of this research arises a new Method of cooking, in vacuum and steam.

Our ovens adapted for steam cooking do the rest. Introducing the bags with the octopus and cook at low temperatures prolonging the time. The result is an octopus that cooks little by little and expels the juices themselves during cooking. This method of cooking enhances the taste of the octopus while keeping all its Proteins, vitamins and minerals in the form of juice. In turn, it prolongs the useful life of the octopus once cooked, until the 120 days in refrigerado.Este process is 100% Natural without adding anything to the octopus in any of the processes that realize. The juice is the great value of the octopus, denominated By some of the best chefs in the world, such as "Caldo del Mar".
