TRUFFLE AND PORCINI OILS From the Appennini mountains, we offer our “Selezione Tartufi” line of truffle & porcini oils, as well as our “D Dalla Terra” and “Trentasette” lines, perfect for both retail and foodservice, and accessible to all truffle lovers. All of our truffle and porcini oils can be used as finishing oils, as well as in the final moments of cooking. White Truffle Olive Oil White Alba truffles are esteemed by many to be the best of any available truffle. This aromatic truffle flavor has been naturally infused into our high-quality olive oil for a unique truffle taste you can enjoy with almost any dish. This oil enhances all truffle dishes and can be used directly in place of fresh white truffles. It is highly recommended by chefs and gourmet lovers around the world for its tremendous quality.

The Truth About Truffle Oil Did you know that there is no actual truffle in truffle oil? If pieces of truffle appear inside the bottle, know that it does not add anything aside from visual pleasure and the ability to list ‘truffle’ as an ingredient on the label. There is no way to squeeze a truffle to make truffle oil, as you would press olives to make olive oil. Truffle oil is made in one of two ways: as a ‘nature identical’ oil, or as a byproduct of petroleum. Petroleum-based products can bear an overpowering, unnatural aroma, and will even burn your throat upon tasting. A ‘nature identical’ oil is made by obtaining flavor molecules from fruits/vegetables that exist naturally in nature, such as carrots, apple or potato, that combined make up the flavor aroma of a truffle. One way to find out the type of oil you have is The Heat Test. Truffle oil that is not ‘nature identical’ will break down under heat. So, dab a little bit of truffle oil on your hand. Smell it, and take strong note of the aroma. Now, rub your finger on the patch of oil to heat it up for about 10 seconds. Smell the oil again. A ‘nature identical’ oil will have the same aroma after creating heat. An unnatural, petroleum-based oil will not and the oil will have noticea- 8 bly lost its aroma.

Black Truffle Olive Oil This velvety and luxurious oil is made with the aroma of black winter truffles and it’s a perfect match for bringing all your foods up to the next level of gourmet. When infused into a traditional olive oil from Umbria, the essence of these truffles is captured in the perfect symbiosis ideally suited to enhance the taste of main dishes, appetizers and garnishes. A more round and earthy flavor than the bolder white truffle. Porcini Oil Our porcini oil is made from high quality olive oil and is naturally infused with the flavorful aroma of only the highest quality porcini mushrooms. Used to enhance mushroom sauces or as a perfect addition to rice and risotto dishes, pastas, and roasted meats. White Truffle Sunflower Oil This truffle oil is made by combining the smooth taste of sunflower seed oil and the bold flavor of white truffles. The end result is a light oil with an intense flavor and rich truffle aroma. Fantastic drizzled over pasta or risotto dishes, fish, popcorn, meats or in dressings where olive oil can be too overpowering.

Truffle availability depends on season and conditions. See the descriptions to the right for information on the different truffles and their availability.

D.O.P. EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL “Planeta” D.O.P. Val di Mazara The Planeta Extra Virgin Olive Oil D.O.P Val di Mazara distinguishes itself from all other olive oils. The thousand year old trees from which the olives grow add to the beautiful and rustic nature of this olive oil. Through a mix of tradition and modern technology, Planeta carefully crafts its prized oil to perfection with such care that only 14 liters are produced from 100 kg of olives compared to normally up to 22 liters for other oils. Varieties used are 50% Nocellara di Belice, 30% Biancolilla and 20% Cerasuola olives, all from the groves of the Planeta estate. Also available in Monocultivar from pitted Biancolilla or from pitted Nocellara del Belice. Each of the monocultivar with particular and amazing qualities and tasting notes.

The Planeta grove extends for 98 hectares in the Caparrina district in Menfi (AG). Planeta’s decision to dedicate this land to olives was not random. It was in order to safeguard the landscape and its nature, to make the most of the land and to create employment. The harvest takes place in early October. The olives are picked manually and processed within a few hours at the press situated in the center of the olive grove to ensure the best tasting results. Planeta’s continuous research into quality has allowed them to win some of the principal prizes in the sector, in a short time becoming one of the benchmarks of quality for extra virgin olive oil.

Serving Suggestions: Our Planeta Olive Oil is wonderful paired with hearty vegetables, meats, meatier and rich fish, carpaccio, salads, pastas and wherever you desire a round, distinctive olive oil finish to your dish. Tasting notes for the Planeta D.O.P. Extra Virgin Olive Oil A deep, bright green color with hints of pistachio. An elegant and harmonious bouquet on the nose with fresh mint and basil combined with an aromatic touch of sage, thyme, oregano and juniper, mixed with all the typical aromas of the area: citrus flowers, artichoke, green tomato and seaweed. The initial sensation on the palate is full and in the mouth it is generous, fresh and pleasantly bitter at the beginning with a long and persistently spicy finish. All together an amazing oil, 16 which consensus is shown through the multiple, yearly awards it has won.

RICE AND FARRO GRAINS Arborio Rice Arborio is a long grain rice with a pronounced indentation and pearly appearance that leaves behind a large amount of starch during cooking. A classic element in Italian cuisine, you will find this versatile rice useful for all of your cooking needs.

Carnaroli Rice Carnaroli rice has elongated grains and a small central pearl in the middle. It has a high starch release and high-absorption capacity, making it naturally very creamy and flavorful. Perfect for cooking creamy risotto dishes. Vialone Nano Rice Vialone Nano was developed from a hybridization between Vialone and Nano and was named for the reduced height of the plant (nano means dwarf in Italian). Vialone Nano rice has round, medium grains, which are pearly in the middle with a pronounced indentation. Due to its high absorption capacity, it is a perfect base for a sophisticated risotto or any rice dish you are preparing. It also releases the most starch for creaminess.

Riso Vignola is a source of fine Italian rices, recognized and appreciated on international markets. This was certainly not the case in 1880, when Giovanni Vignola, the family’s founder, began to process the typical cereals of the Po Valley in an old mill in Balzola, bordering the provinces of Alessandria and Vercelli. Over the years, five generations of the Vignola family have devoted themselves exclusively to the art of refining rice, gradually transforming the old mill into a modern company. After more than a century of constant transformation and innovation, Giovanni Vignola, the latest heir (with the same name as the founder) continues to make history. Today, with extremely sophisticated technologies and highly flexible production methods, Vignola is a model rice mill, faithful to its traditions and devoted to total quality.

Black Venere Rice Black Venere Rice is known for its beautiful, deep purple-black color and delicate, nutty flavor. It is rich in essential amino acids, fiber, phosphorous and Vitamin B5 and is full of minerals like calcium, iron, zinc and selenium. It is wonderful in rice salads, soups and as an accompaniment to meats and seafood. Farro Grains Farro is delicious and nutritious and best of all, incredible easy to cook! Farro has fewer calories per serving than brown rice or quinoa, is higher in fiber than both, with about as much protein as quinoa. Packed with vitamins. Delicious hot or cold. Also Kosher. 24

SPECIALTY WHEAT GERM PASTA Pappardelle The name for Pappardelle comes from the Italian word “pappare” which means to gobble up. Whether served with a meat sauce, sautéed vegetables or seafood, you will be sure to gobble this pasta up!

Wheat germ is the heart of the wheat grain, rich in flavor and nourishing active ingredients. The germ is normally removed when the grain is milled in order to improve the flour concentration and the expiration of the flour. Pastificio Morelli uses artisan techniques to incorporate the wheat germ into the flour during the pasta production. The germ gets processed immediately, while it’s still fresh, and it never has the opportunity to deteriorate. This brings out the best in flavor and healthy characteristics and gives it a unique consistency and flavor.

ITALIAN MEAT SAUCES Ragu` Bolognese Meat Sauce This sauce is made according to the traditional recipe. This traditional sauce is the most famous in the world and is for sure the one preferred by all Bolognese families. Its richness is the result of a long cooking which gives to this sauce a distinctive and unique taste.

Tomato Sauce with Onion & Prosciutto This is a sauce made with tomatoes from our region and a selection of Emilia ham. To all this, we have added the famous golden onion from Medicina, which is a source of pride for Bologna area. The lightly spicy flavour of the onion balances the taste of the meat. The sweet and balanced Cervia sea salt completes the preparation and symbolizes the traditional Emilian cuisine.

1934: their grandfathers, Amerigo and Agnese, opened the doors of the Trattoria. They are in the Samoggia Valley, on the Bolognese Appennines between Bologna and Modena, a territory source of curiosity and inspiration. While Amerigo was out and about selecting the raw materials for a simple yet tasty cuisine for more than fifty years, Agnese was cooking in the kitchen. She was first helped by her daughters, Marisa and Giuliana, then by his grandson Alberto who has since evolved the Trattoria’s philosophy and traditions and who now continues to run it. The Trattoria, awarded by customers and gastronomic guides, has always been a reference point and a source of inspiration for the Dispensa. Now, as was the case all those years ago, farmers, wine-growers, woodsmen, animal farmers, mushroom pickers and truffle hunters are the people with whom they work. Friends who have grown with us over the years are their ‘expert’ tasters.

Tomato Sauce with Onion & Suasage This is a sauce prepared with the local tomato puree “passata” and characterized by a balance between acidity and sweetness. The presence of the golden onion from Medicina (a small village near Bologna) gives to the sauce flavour and personality. The recipe is completed by the Romagna extravirgin olive oil and Cervia sea salt: two local ingredients for a product tightly linked to our region.

Tomato Sauce with Onion & Pancetta This is a sauce made with ingredients from our region. We have added to the tomato from Emilia, some pancetta (bacon) from Modena and the golden onion from Medicina village: a local variety coming from Bologna area. The result obtained is a balanced, flavoured and savory sauce, consistent with our cooking traditions. 34

TOMATO SAUCES Sugoro Is the traditional sauce, in Italian cuisine, where freshly picked tomatoes and basil, harvested in August, are sealed into a jar that keeps the summer fragrance that will be unleashed as soon as you open it.

Arrabbiata Onion, garlic, parsley, and a pinch of hot pepper, are the simple ingredients used in this sauce that give expression to juicy red tomatoes. THE BEGINNING OF ALTHEA Althea was set up in 1932 by a well-known Parma family: the Bertozzi's. The company's recollections are that during a site-visit for the purchase of a existing canning factory for the new company, Carlo Bertozzi picked a wild flower, which an expert in botany would have recognised as the "Althea officinalis". A flower as a guarantee of authenticity and excellence: the two cornerstones of the new company's philosophy. Althea was set up when the Bertozzi brothers sensed "that the mentality of the consumer, though still tied to the traditional cooking methods, was nonetheless actually attracted towards new ones". The winning idea in Althea's success was their aim that the company should represent "Italian Cooking" and therefore not only be a producer of tomato paste, where the market was already saturated, but a producer of more refined, ready-to-use products. 36

Portofino Olives, capers and tomatoes, sprinkled with parsley, are ingredients used in this sauce that takes you to Liguria, the piece of land kissed by the sun and the sea.

Basilico The simple recipe made from selected ingredients: tomatoes, onion, basil and extra virgin olive oil, where the fragrance of basil prevails taking you into the Italian summer garden.

ANTIPASTO SELECTION The Castellino story began in 1963 when Vincenzo Lombardo, originally from Sicily, started producing liqueurs in the basement of the building where he used to live in Rome. In 1979, Vincenzo received a proposal to trade olives from the president of an agricultural cooperative, who was also one of his Sicilian childhood friends. As a child Vincenzo knew everything about olives and vegetables so he took the chance and he turned his factory into a traditional antipasti-processing plant, offering high quality products which respected his Italian heritage. After Vincenzo’s retirement, his son Francesco took control of the company, and developed their range to include new unique antipasti, improved the packaging and adopted new technologies. Today the Castellino brand includes more than 100 Italian recipes, created by their chef, who constantly develops new ideas together with our partners all over the world.

Many variations of the original recipe have been established, although debates continue on which type is the tastiest!
