The Italian Pantry
Pull one end of an elegant ribbon to unwrap our Italian Pantry Gift and stock the shelves of your recipient with buona fortuna. Why good luck? Because thanks to you, they will be prepared to serve gourmet Italian meals prontissimo with white and red wine vinegars, aged balsamic, flavor and spice-infused salts, pastas, sauces, and EVOO.
What makes artisan Italian ingredients better? Here are a few reasons beyond the joy of supporting small producers that spend a lifetime cultivating their crafts. While commercial pastas allow sauces to separate and remain on the plate, the subtle textures of the pastas in this gift help sauces cling to their exterior, yielding more flavor in every bite. Speaking of sauces, when you start with tomatoes and basil in peak season, add quality cheeses and pine nuts, and insist on the finest ingredients, discernment is reflected in great taste. The vinegars in this gift make future supermarket purchases a no go because the aging and refining process of artisan vinegars lead to a distinctive, complex taste that leaves commercial vinegars tasting one-note forevermore. Finally, EVOO from same-day cold pressing of single varietal olives yields a sumptuous, peppery oil that will provide a layer of flavor for every recipe or will stand firmly on its own to soak up with artisan bread.
Ready with all the basics for making Italian meals at home, they'll be thrilled you helped them stay home to gather around the table with la famiglia.
