If you know us at Giadzy, you know there's one Italian custom we firmly believe should be standard everywhere: aperitivo hour. The aperitivo is more than just a pre-meal cocktail—it's a time-honored ritual, an iconic Italian tradition. As any Italian will tell you, no aperitivo is complete without tasty bites to nibble on alongside it. Just bring the cheese and a bottle of wine—with this kit, we've covered the snacks. This is Everything But The Formaggio box is beautifully packed for the cocktail hour connoisseur in your life.

This kit contains:
Mini Rubata Breadsticks: These perfectly crunchy, deliciously simple little rods are an excellent aperitivo snack. And, of course, they're made with high-quality Italian ingredients by a small family-owned bakery. But they also have a fairytale-like backstory that inspires devotion, dedication, and love.

Taralli: Crunchy, savory, and eminently snackable, these taralli from Fiore di Puglia are a southern Italian favorite. Taralli can be found in many flavors across the region, ranging from savory to sweet. This light, airy version from Puglia is beautiful in its simplicity, flavored only with high-quality local olive oil and a hint of white wine. They make a satisfying addition to any aperitivo hour.

Cerignola Green Olives: Olive lovers, rejoice! These Bella di Cerignola olives are the world's most significant—we think they're the tastiest, too. The large gems have a notably buttery, nutty flavor that is beloved by olive connoisseurs and skeptics. Grown in the southern region of Puglia, these massive beauties are an essential piece of Italian culinary history.

Sicilian Caponata:  Caponata is similar to ratatouille, comprised mainly of cooked-down summer veggies to become a luxuriously silky condiment, but caponata adds big, punchy flavors like those famous capers for a bright, flavorful dish that can be used as a spread, a side, a dip and more.

Fig Jam: We believe fig jam to be the ultimate jam when it comes to cheese boards! It has a mild, honeyed sweet flavor that brings out the best in every combination it takes part in. Versatile and delicious, we love to mix this with a touch of Calabrian chili paste to give it an interesting edge - and it's phenomenal on crostini.

Honey with Hazelnuts: This jar of acacia honey filled to the brim with hazelnuts is a sweet taste of the Piedmont from Le Querce. Nocciola piemonte, the hazelnuts that grow in the mountainous northern region of Italy, are so precious that not only are they IGP-certified (the official Italian designation for products that are best in a specific region), their orchards are actually a UNESCO heritage site. More flavorful than your average hazelnut, they have a rich, complex flavor that infuses into this delicious honey.

Tuscan Mostarda: 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.

Artichoke Spread: Ready for the simplest, most impressive cocktail snack to serve at your next party? Spread a dollop of this artichoke cream from Agnoni on warm bruschetta and top with a shaving of parmesan cheese. That's it! This decadently simple spread blends tender Roman artichokes with olive oil and a touch of vinegar for brightness, giving it a pure artichoke flavor that's miles easier than preparing the spiky vegetables yourself.

 

Set of Bowls: Add Italian flair to your table with these delightful bowls from Vietri. This set contains two bowls whimsically decorated and painted in bold primary colors that are the iconic signature of ceramics from Campania. The perfect size for serving olive oil and other condiments, these hand-painted terra cotta bowls are as versatile as they are adorable.

Cerignola olives have a sweet and mild flavor that pairs well with nutty and creamy cheeses.

Parmigiano-Reggiano is a perfect bite alongside a Cerignola olive, but soft cheeses like mozzarella, burrata and ricotta pair beautifully as well.

Sicilian caponata is unctuous, savory, and full of luscious flavor. It has the power to take on nearly any cheese and transform it - try it with hard aged cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino, a softer buttery cheese like Fontina, or whole milk ricotta.

We believe fig jam to be the ultimate jam when it comes to cheese boards! It has a mild, honeyed sweet flavor that brings out the best in every combination it takes part in. Versatile and delicious, we love to mix this with a touch of Calabrian chili paste to give it an interesting edge - and it's phenomenal on crostini.
