This box contains:
Gluten-Free Pappardelle: Wide, flat pappardelle is beloved in Tuscany, with a shape similar to tagliatelle but with more surface area. Made from corn and rice flour, it’s virtually indistinguishable from our favorite wheat-based pasta. You can even use the starchy cooking water!
Gluten-Free Brown Rice Fusilli: With a focus on the highest quality ingredients, this fusilli from Massimo Zero is a truly superior gluten-free pasta—and trust us, we've tried a lot. Made from corn and rice flour and boosted with rice bran, Fusilli’s iconic corkscrew shape makes this a perfect match for any hearty sauce or pasta salad recipe in your repertoire.
Pomodorino Di Corbara Whole Tomatoes: While these tomatoes are definitely are a step up in price from grocery store varieties, the difference in flavor is unmistakable. They are the ultimate embodiment of the Italian philosophy of cooking: selecting only the best-quality ingredients—no matter how humble—and preparing them simply. With just these tomatoes, a packet of good pasta, and some olive oil and parmigiana, you can have a dinner party-worthy dinner ready at a moment’s notice.
Tuscan Salt Blend: Created by world-famous Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini, this masterful salt blend is known as Profumo del Chianti (“the scent of Chianti”). Fragrant with sun-dried herbs, including sage, lavender, and rosemary, combined with crunchy sea salt, this blend smells like a walk through the Tuscan countryside, where these plants grow in wild abundance.
Pistachio Pesto: The classic pesto from Genoa gets a Sicilian twist in this pistachio pesto. Sicilian pistachios are renowned across Italy for their depth of flavor—they’re ultra-sweet and aromatic, with a brilliant green hue and intense creaminess. Here, they’re ground with extra-virgin olive oil and salt for a unique condiment that’s salty and savory with a hint of elegant, luscious sweetness. It’s a unique taste of the southern Mediterranean that makes a delightful accompaniment to foods of all kinds, from fish to veggies.
