This box contains:
L'Oro in Cucina Truffle Oil: We can’t think of a more appropriate name for this truffle-infused olive oil from Tartuflanghe—it truly is culinary gold. It begins with a fruity, well-balanced extra-virgin olive oil hand-selected for its flavor profile, with notes of green vegetables and almonds, which complements the truffle flavor without stealing the show. The oil is infused with real slices of freeze-dried black winter truffle from the forests outside Alba, the truffle capital of Italy. With a powerful umami essence, this brilliant finishing oil adds a touch of luxury to dishes of all kinds.
Organic Rosemary: No herb is more quintessentially Mediterranean than rosemary, and there’s no dried rosemary more intensely aromatic than this version from Filippone. It’s grown on a small family farm in Sicily and dried right on the branch, so there's no doubt about what you're getting.
Bitter Orange Marmalade: What bitter oranges lack in sweetness, they make up for in fragrance, and their skins are rich in the aromatic oils that make oranges smell like, well, oranges. This juicy marmalade can be used in both sweet and savory applications and makes an unexpected, delightful marinade or glaze for meats and poultry.
Anchovy Filets: Every chef worth their salt knows that anchovies are an unsung kitchen powerhouse, bringing a deep umami note to sauces, dressings, and more. These sustainably caught anchovies from the Tyrrhenian Sea are a luxurious version of this humble ingredient, and their flavor is absolutely unmatched.
Tripolini Pasta: If there’s a more picture-perfect pasta than this one, we haven’t seen it. With one ruffled edge and one straight, this ribbon-like pasta comes loaded with textural appeal. It comes in a large 2-pound bag for plenty of experimentation.
Sea Salt Seasoning with Capers: You don’t have to love capers to find a million and one uses for this sea salt with capers from Kazzen—their tart umami essence gives this seasoning salt a deliciously subtle flavor boost. But if you’re already a fan of the little green buds, a secret ingredient in some of our favorite punchy Italian dishes, you’ll love this new way to add their unique flavor to everything you make.
Arbutus Honey: Pleasantly bitter and complex, this arbutus honey is a rare treat. It’s collected from the blossoms of arbutus trees in Calabria and Sardinia in October and November, a time when bees are generally inactive, making this honey especially precious. Its bold flavor makes a notable addition to cheese boards and can be used to sweeten whiskey cocktails or coffees.
Corbara Yellow Tomatoes: Looks aren't everything, but when it comes to these yellow tomatoes, they're one part of the stunning package. With an adorably peaked bottom and a candy-sweet flavor, these golden jewels grown near the Amalfi coast can be used directly from the jar in salads, pasta, pizza, and more.
La Dolce Vita Tote: Sustainable, but make it cool! This Giadzy-exclusive tote with a fun "La Dolce Vita" design is sturdy and useful while you are out and about. Made with 100% Organic Cotton tote bags, our 6-ounce tote is the perfect size to keep your essentials at your side without being too bulky.
