An authentic taste of Italy
If you love Italian food, then you’ll want to use authentic ingredients. Our food cupboard has everything you need - piquant olives and sundried tomatoes from Tuscany, crostini from Abruzzo and tuna cooked and cured to the traditional recipes of Sicily.
Before your meal, crispy Pan Ducale crostini crackers are a great snack to enjoy with an aperitif - flavoured with spicy hot peppers, herbs, cheese, garlic, olives or sundried tomatoes – they’re all delicious. Or, as an alternative, try Fiorentini rice snacks with chili or tomato and basil.
Of course you can’t create genuine pizza, pasta, sauces, cakes or biscuits without the best ingredients. The Caputo Double 0 flour is marvelous for making pizza, cakes or biscuits, whilst the Casale Paradiso mixes are exquisite seasoning which you can mix into pastas or use to top up pizzas and enhance flavours. They are all free from pesticides, insecticides, colouring and preservatives and you can give them a lift with Paneangeli yeast and baking powder.
We also have a great range of delicious Seggiano artisan products from small family producers, which are essentials for any Italian-inspired store cupboard. Named after the village where it all started over twenty years ago, all these amazing biscuits, breadsticks, sauces, pastes and pestos – to name but a few - are hand-made and free from preservatives.
And don’t forget the essential standby Roi pesto and olive pastes for an extra flavour boost to any dish. We also have delicious Mutti tomato sauces and even more from Pralina, to give genuine depth and Italian flavor to any meal.
If you want to capture the authentic tastes of the Sicilian seas then you need look no further than Vicente Marino tuna, sardines, mackerel and anchovies, which have all been prepared using traditional techniques and the finest ingredients. Or, from the Amalfi coast, Rio Mare tuna will bring back the taste of Italian childhood.
Because condiments are essential to your enjoyment, we have been sure to select an outstanding range for you. There’s no end to the dishes that will benefit from a dash of Bellei Bronze Label Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, a splash of Elle Esse White Truffle Oil from Piedmont, or indulgent San Pietro Black Truffle Pate, for example. Capparis salty capers can really transform your cooking too. And, from Tuscany, Raffaelli brings the tastes of the Mediterranean with seasonings for fish, meat, salads and vegetables.
