Now That's Italian Gift Basket
Italian food is loved the world over, and the delicious discoveries in this sumptuous Italian-themed gift basket evoke images of special places and preserved culinary traditions. Designed for authentic Italian cooking at home, the basket begins with both a long and short cut of handcrafted, air-dried pasta, made to centuries-old traditions. Trofie, a shape native to the Liguria, is traditionally tossed with pesto, and the Basil Pesto from La Bella Angiolina is a classic. Cassina Rossa's lovingly crafted Due Formaggi Sauce, blended with a delicious combination of Pecorino and Ricotta cheeses, clings beautifully to linguine from Rustichella d'Abruzzo.
Ravida Extra Virgin Olive Oil, an estate-bottled, unfiltered oil from Sicily shines when drizzled over rustic breads, roasted vegetables and pasta, while Ritrovo Selections 6-year Aged Balsamic Vinegar is a thick, ambrosial liquid with extraordinary density, aroma and depth of flavor. Superb with a wide range of dishes from fresh strawberries to salad greens topped with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese shavings to most any meat dish.
For three generations, the Campanini family has produced superior Italian rice, and their risotto mixes, new to the United States, provides a creamy, satisfying risotto with very little effort. Traditional crostini and small batch, hand cut biscotti complete this glorious gift. Buon Appetito!
