This box contains:
Eat Better, Feel Better Signed Book: Giada’s most personal book yet, part cookbook and part memoir, is the culmination of a 10-year journey to take control of her health. In it, she gives you an inside look at her path to wellness and how she maintains a balanced life. She devotes an entire chapter to her 3-day reboot, which she follows several times a year. She also offers more than two dozen dairy-free, sugar-free and gluten-free recipes to accompany the plan, as well as a 21-day menu outline that makes cooking for good easy to implement at home. This copy has been signed by Giada!
Gluten-Free Brown Rice Penne Rigate: One of the most well-known pasta shapes in the world, penne rigate are medium-length tubes that trap delicious sauce in the ridges that run down their sides. Like whole-wheat pasta, this penne has a hearty flavor and texture that works well with big flavors. Try it with a spicy vodka sauce or bold puttanesca.
Fiorentini Pasta: A loosely curved, short pasta with an unpredictably twisty flourish, this is a style rarely found in the U.S. The complex shape requires a special die to be produced by machine, and just a few traditional pasta makers in Italy go to the trouble of keeping it in stock. Once you try it, Fiorentini is likely to jump to the top of your pasta favorites list; the ruffled charm of its graceful, calla lily-shaped curls has a way of elevating even the most simple dishes.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Every kitchen needs versatile extra virgin olive oil, and this one from Fratepietro is a stunner. It’s made from a blend of Bella di Cerignola and Coratina olives grown in sunny Puglia on the Fratepietro family estate. It is well-balanced enough to use in everyday cooking but has a crisp flavor that shines as a finishing oil.
Crushed Calabrian Chili Paste: With a mellow, fruity heat that lingers on the palate but won't overwhelm, there's just no substitute for this crushed Calabrian chile paste from Tutto Calabria. The quintessential Italian chili is beloved around the country for the lively heat they bring to any dish. Similar in Scoville level to cayenne but with a depth of flavor unlike any other, this paste of fresh chiles crushed and preserved in olive oil is a must-have for any spice lover’s pantry. It’s one of Giada’s essential Italian ingredients.
Cerignola Green Olives: Olive lovers, rejoice! These Bella di Cerignola olives from Fratepietro are the world's largest—and we think they’re the tastiest, too. The oversized gems have a notably buttery, nutty flavor that is beloved by olive connoisseurs and skeptics alike. Grown by the Fratepietro family in the southern region of Puglia, these massive beauties are an important piece of Italian culinary history.
