DLM Vera Jane's Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from olive groves near the beautiful medieval town of Lucignano in Tuscany, Italy. This oil has a nice rounded rustic flavor with a peppery tickle typically found in Tuscan oils. Named for Vera Mayne, long time matriarch of the DLM family.
Parmigiano-Reggiano comes from the rolling hills outside of Modena, Italy. We've visited the farm, seen how the cheese is aged...even petted the cows! These docile, content animals produce wonderful milk thanks to their diet of grazing the local forage. And great milk makes great cheese. Every wheel is aged for some two years and expertly inspected before being shipped to us.
Monograno Felicetti Matt Spaghetti is 100% organic and made in Italy. Matt is a resilient and rich variety of durum wheat that is farmed from the sunny fields of Apulia. Its ancient taste reminds us of stone cooked bread and butter. This is truly one of Italy's best pastas in our opinion.
Mariangela Prunotto Organic Arrabbiata Sauce is a traditional recipe made with fresh hot pepper as the base along with carrots, onions, garlic, celery, and basil. There is just a subtle, lingering heat but it is not overpowering. There is no sugar, salt, or concentrate added.
DLM Pomodoro San Marzana DOP Tomatoes: We believe this is the finest canned tomato you will ever have. It is favored by chefs and serious cooks the world over. The true Italian San Marzano tomato is grown in the volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius in the Campania region of Italy. Our Honestly Better® tomatoes carry the "D.O.P." designation, an Italian acronym which, loosely translated, means "name of origin protected." In other words, the integrity of this special product is protected by Italian law. Use it as you would any canned tomato for homemade pizza and pasta sauces, stews, chili, and so on. Buon appetito!
Principato di Lucedio Carnaroli Rice is from one of Italy's finest rice growing estates located in the heart of the Piemonte region. Grown on the flood plains there, this rice is harvested once a year in September, then dried and only husked when orders are received. This ensures you get the freshest rice possible. Great when simmered in white wine and served with sea salt, black pepper, and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. This is our favorite rice for risotto.
Ritrovo Selections Ligurian Olives in Extra Virgin Olive Oil are legendary Taggiasca late-harvest, pitted olives. Add to salads, tapas, sauces, pasta, or charcuterie boards.
