Peeled Plum Tomatoes (3x400g) - Valfrutta


Made by using only the highest quality standards, this pack of three peeled plum tomatoes cans is a perfect option to make gorgeous dishes that are rich and strong in texture. Thanks to their versatility, they can be used for many types of pasta (such as \'Amatriciana\', \'Penne all\'arrabbiata\', \'Spaghetti alla puttanesca\') and to prepare main dishes as well (such as \'Pollo alla cacciatora\') or as a simple condiment for sausages and potatoes. 

These tomatoes are picked-up in the regions of Apulia, Molise and Basilicata, carefully selected and processed after a few hours to maintain their freshness, with attention in every step of the process. After that, the tomatoes are gently steamed and the result is peeled plum tomatoes of the highest quality and freshness. The working process in South of Italy is totally environmentally-friendly, as the tomatoes are processed only by using renewable methods.

Dairy-Free Pesto alla Genovese (130g) - La Malva Rosa


Our delicious dairy-free basil pesto is rich in nutrients thanks to its artisan recipe.

The complex selection behind each ingredient is the key to pesto\'s great taste and only Italy does it properly. Here, the basil used is DOP (PDO) certified*, cultivated in the producer La Malva Rosa\'s own land. Also, thanks to an exclusive recipe, they are the only producer to make a pesto without cooking the basil. This means that it tastes much more fresh and doesn\'t lose any of its minerals or extensive health benefits. It has a shelf-life of 24 months and it does not contain preservatives. Try it with linguine pasta (although almost any pasta shape will do), or use it to enrich your soup, salads or potatoes. It\'s even ideal with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella to prepare an Italian caprese.

*DOP (PDO): DOP is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (literally “Protected Designation of Origin”). This certification ensures that products are locally grown and packaged, using traditional method.

Shelled Sicilian Pistachios (50g) - Bacco

Marsala "Floriovo" (75cl) - Florio


Marsala is an iconic Sicilian sweet liqueur wine, often paired with Italian desserts, enriched with the natural substances of egg yolk. This amber-coloured Marsala with coppery reflections is reminiscent of caramel due to its brightness, characterised by sweet notes of cotton candy and marzipan, followed by notes of aromatic and medicinal herbs with slight mineral puffs. The taste is soft, warm, mainly sweet, and delicate. It is rich in returns of dried fruit and a long persistence of toasted almonds. 

This wine is excellent for flavouring marzipan, making Tiramisu and Zabaglione. You can also use it to make sauces, but it is also a good company for fruit pies and dry pastries. You can drink the wine on its own as a dessert wine or as an after-dinner drink.

A traditional Ligurian recipe. Porcini mushroom cream is excellent as a topping to your favourite dishes, including pasta, as well as to be spread on slices of bread or crackers. Tasty and flavoured, this artisan sauce will delight your taste buds.
