This box contains:
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.
Dried Oregano: Oregano is a versatile, fragrant herb that is a true staple of Italian cuisine. It’s indispensable in sauces, vinaigrettes, marinades—you name it. This organic oregano 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.
Calabrian Chile Paste: The quintessential Italian pepper, Calabrian chiles are beloved around the country for the lively, flavorful heat they bring to any dish. This paste of fresh chiles crushed and preserved in olive oil is a must-have for any spice lover’s pantry.
Dried Hot Long Chili Peppers: With a mellow, fruity heat that lingers on the palate but won't overwhelm, there's just no substitute for these dried chiles. They’re similar in Scoville level to cayenne but with a depth of flavor unlike any other.
Linguine alla Puttanesca Spice Kit: Put together by the spice experts at Tutto Calabria, this all-in-one spice packet has dried garlic, capers, tomatoes, olives, onions, and basil. Just add tomatoes and simmer, and you’ve got this Neapolitan favorite in as much time as it takes to boil the pasta.
Penne Alla Campagnola Spice Kit: This small but mighty spice packet contains all of the flavors of the classic Roman pasta dish, which celebrates the end of summer with sweet peppers and an abundance of zucchini and eggplant. The dried vegetables in this packet were harvested in the hot Calabrian sun, so pull this out whenever you need a little sunshine in your meal.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil With White Truffle: Pour on the luxury with this oil made from the ultra-rare white truffles that only grow in the northwestern Piedmont region. White truffles are prized for their deeply savory flavor, like aged cheese. These precious nuggets are combined with certified organic extra-virgin olive oil to make this fragrant, flavorful finishing oil.
