La Grigliata Perfetta: The Ultimate Italian Grilling Box
Grilling on an open fire is an integral part of traditional Italian cooking, and these are the condiments that will make it an authentic grigliata at home! With sweet and spicy mostarda and a salt blend from master Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini, organic dried rosemary from Sicily, extra virgin olive oil infused with red peppers crafted from genius chef Massimo Bottura, and glazey organic balsamic vinegar of Modena, this box has everything to season your favorite food to grill.
Created by world-famous Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini, this mostarda is a sweet pepper condiment that adds big flavor to everything it touches. A traditional northern Italian relish, mostarda is usually made with candied fruit with a spicy kick. This version uses a base of red bell peppers, with just the right amount of fresh chiles for heat.
Like a sophisticated and perfectly balanced pepper jelly, use this condiment anywhere that could use a bit of sweetness, acidity, and spice. We particularly love it for glazing meat as it's finishing on the grill, or as a delicious spread on a sandwich.
Tuscan Salt Blend
Also created by 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.
Use this to season everything from meat to veggies - it gives everything a bit of that northern Italian flavor. We especially love it to season grilled steak - it gives us all the Bistecca Fiorentina vibes.
Organic Rosemary Sprigs
No herb is more quintessentially Mediterranean than rosemary, and there’s no dried rosemary more intensely aromatic than this version from Filippone. The woody plant thrives in sunny, dry climates, and it grows wild across much of southern Italy, where its unmistakable scent perfumes the coastal breezes. This rosemary is grown on a small family farm in Sicily and dried right on the branch, so there's no doubt about what you're getting.
Use this rosemary in marinades, dressings, or crumble it over anything to season.
Red Pepper Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Massimo Bottura
Turn your next dinner into a Michelin-level gourmet meal with this red chile pepper-infused oil from Villa Manodori. Created by chef Massimo Bottura, whose restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena has been ranked the best in the world, this oil showcases his genius with flavor. It’s made by blending extra virgin Italian olive oil with the essential oil of Italian chile peppers, distilled using a special process that took years to perfect to capture the flavor of this spicy powerhouse in its purest form.
Fragrant, sharp, and fruity, this is an amazing finishing oil and a wonderful tool for building layers of flavor as you cook. It's not overly spicy, and it provides a great warmth drizzled over steak, burgers, or to use in a zingy sauce.
Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP 'Gold Series' Organic Biodynamic
For a flavorful, top-quality balsamic vinegar that’s better for the planet, look no further than this gold series balsamic from Guerzoni. The only balsamic producer in Modena that is certified in both organic and biodynamic practices, the Guerzoni family has been making truly delicious bottles of vinegar since 1984.
Drizzle this right on top of meat or veggies right when they get off the grill - it adds an absolutely delicious sweet depth of flavor.
