Ligurian Taggiasche olives are famous for their round, balanced flavour. These pitted (denocciolate) olives in extra virgin olive oil are grown and produced by Olio Roi – a family company in the Argentina Valley in the San Remo hinterland, where the cultivation of olive trees has been a tradition since Roman times.
Prosciutto di San Daniele from Friuli in northern Italy is protected by strict appellation controls – pork and salt are the only 2 permitted ingredients – nitrates and preservatives are banned. This prosciutto from the Dall’ava family is a truly artisan prosciutto – made, matured and branded by hand. It has a moist, supple texture that seems to melt on the tongue and a smooth, balanced, sweet-savoury flavour that unfolds gently on the palate with a wonderful complexity not found in mass-produced prosciutto. Serve on antipasti platters, in panini, on pizza, in salads or simply wrapped around grissini for a quick appetiser. 100g sliced and wrapped in deli paper.
