The Italian Birthday Treats Hamper
The Italian Birthday Treats Hamper contains:- Montalbano Olive oil 500ml. Made from Leccino, Moraiolo, Frantoio, Pendolino, Rossellino and Piangente ('weeping') varieties as has been the tradition for many years. The passion and experience used in its production give us a highly prized and superior quality oil with the typical pepperiness characteristic of Tuscan oils but also well balanced and ideal for use cold in salads but as much at home on cooked foods also. This Extra Virgin Olive oil PGI (this guarantees its geographical production area)
- Lentils of Colfiorito 350g. The lentil is small and tender and naturally varies in colour from yellow to green to red and it needs no soaking, cooking from dry in just 20 minutes. It is superb 'in umido' cooked with some pancetta (bacon), onion and some broth. 350g packet for eating, not planting.
- Honey Millefiori 400g. Classic flavour of flower fields with fine crystallisation. It is the best honey for dissolving into coffee, tea or chamomile and great for spreading onto bread or toast.
- Polenta 'Bramata' 1kg. The typical polenta of Bergamo and not the pre-cooked one. This one is rustic with oodles of flavour and takes about 50mins to cook.
- Pan Ducale Bastoncini / Cantuccini. 250g. If you could box Tuscany, you'd have cantuccini! So traditional and traditionally eaten by dipping them into Vin Santo (holy wine) but coffee is just as good!
