The Gourmet Adventure Package from Italy includes the following tasty treats:
Amaretti Virginia Crispy Cookies
In 1860, Sassello, a small town in the heart of the Ligurian region, became the birthplace of a refined and exquisite delicacy: Individually wrapped Amaretto Virginia crunchy cookies in tin container. Serve with coffee, liqueur or gelato. 175 grams.
Giuseppe Cocco Penne Rigate Pasta
This pasta is the real deal. Produced in the Chieti Province of Abruzzo, the de-facto capital of quality pasta production, Giuseppe Cocco uses old world techniques and bronze die to extrude its pasta. This creates a slightly rough finish to the noodle, allowing it to cling perfectly to sauce. 500 grams (17.6 oz.)
Castellino Grilled Artichoke Halves
After one taste, you will realize that not all jarred vegetables are created equal! Add these rustic grilled artichoke halves to your antipasto platter or to a grilled chicken dish. These are also delightful with pasta and a pizza topping. 280 grams (10 oz.)
Monte Pollino Caponata
Caponata di Melanzane Caponata is a Sicilian eggplant dish consisting of a cooked vegetable salad made from chopped fried eggplant and celery seasoned with sweetened vinegar, with capers in a sweet and sour sauce. Caponata is a perfect addition to any cold plate appetizer, bruschetta, condiment/sauce, pasta or pizza topping. 280 grams (10 oz.)
