Italian Essentials

San Marzano tomatoes -

A variety of Roma or plum tomatoes, are considered by many chefs to be the best sauce tomatoes in the world. They come from a small town of the same name near Naples, Italy, grown in volcanic soil in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. The volcanic soil is believed to act as a filter for water impurities. Compared to the Roma Tomatoes with which most people are familiar, Marzano tomatoes are thinner and pointier in shape. The flesh is much thicker with fewer seeds, and the taste is much stronger, less sweet and less acidic. Many people describe the taste as bittersweet, like great chocolate. Because of their high quality, San Marzano tomatoes have been designated as the only tomatoes that can be used for Vera Pizza Napoletana (True Neopolitan Pizza).

(The name denotes both a point of origin and a variety of tomato. True canned Marzanos will have the EU "DOP" emblem on the label.)

Mild, fresh-tasting, pure, and crisp, with a faint bittersweetness. These oblong, walnut-sized olives have a vegetable taste that makes us think of artichoke hearts. Their texture is quite firm. Try serving green Cerignolas with aged provolone, fresh mozzarella, and a hearty Chianti.


I couldn’t imagine what Italian food would be like without bread. Then again I couldn’t imagine what any food would be like without bread. Yes folks I love bread. We’re very old friends who go back many years. Michelangelo once said “I feast on wine and bread and feasts they are”. How true that is. Bread represents many things and is important in the lives of many people. Available daily.
