Focaccia - Starting with our Scaletta bread-dough this bread is proofed in our seasoned pans then liberally sprinkled with oil, herbs, spices, and salt and pepper. Made without cheese or sauce. Its simplicity is what makes it so good. A great addition to any bread basket and a special compliment with salads. We feel this bread is actually at its best at room temperature but certainly can be heated.
No sugar, no preservatives! Can be frozen for up to six months.
Salsa -Tomato-based with the additions of roasted vegetables, this sauce is perfect nearly everywhere, but specifically blended as a topping on toasted bread. Just try it on our Scaletta toast and you will have no doubts! Yet this sauce is also a wonderful pasta coating or even a meat or fish-relish.
IT IS NOT RECOMMEND TO PRE-HEAT THIS SAUCE.It is already fully cooked. The concentrated yet delicate taste will be altered in pre-heating. It is at its very best when poured directly from the jar-- unheated-- on hot, steaming, strained pasta. Yet, it can also be an ideal bruschetta topping or meat-relish. If you feel you must preheat, a ban marie pan is the safest option. Each jar is sufficient for one pound of pasta. In the Italian style, the pasta is coated in sauce, and not drowning in it.
You can improvise an add fresh sautéed vegetables or sautéed meat—but we recommend to first try it alone!
This natural-rising cake is made from a mother-starter and fermented over two days. It is the fermentation, which makes possible the miraculous keeping qualities of this soft, sweet cake, and make it one of the triumphs of the Italian bakers art. Made from the noblest ingredients, without preservatives of any kind. Rich in eggs and butter this soft, fragrant cake is infused with the finest candied orange, raisins, dried cherries, and blooms with a beautifully sweet aroma. The crowning touch on this masterpiece is the baked-on almond icing (la Glassa) which is applied before baking and adds a sweet, crisp, outer shell to this soft cake-like bread.
Twins rendered in blue... The shape of this jar is one of the classic shapes of the apothecary jars of the Italian Renaissance. The indigo blue hand painting is of exceptional quality and is also in keeping with this tradition. Italian craftsmanship is at its unmistakable best, so evident in the graceful rendering of the human form. It is completely handmade and hand-painted in the Tuscan village of Montelupo, world famous for centuries. The generous size of this jar plays host to an equally generous assortment of individually wrapped biscotti, almond macaroons and chocolate covered biscotti. This is unforgettable jar will hold a place of honor in any home.
