It is a common thought associating the nduja calabrese to an extremely strong and hot taste: this is absolutely wrong. If the nduja you’ve tried in the past had merely an hot connotation it is a sign of low quality, as the spiciness has to be balanced in order to exalt the other tastes and not being above them. The 'Nduja of black pig - Consorzio Nero di Calabria is without any doubts at an unattainable level for the others, the reasons are mainly two. The starting raw material comes from the Calabrian black pig, a local specie free range bred endowed with great taste and organoleptic properties. The meats of this pork variety give a softness both in taste and consistency, that is not possible to find in products derived from other porks meats.

If someone asked me a product that perfectly represents freshness and real Italian taste I would answer Apulian Burrata - Caseificio Voglia di Latte for sure. It is a fior di latte mozzarella shell containing an outstanding stracciatella heart that is to say a fresh stretched curd cheese. Its invention dates back to 1956 when a cheese making artisan called Lorenzo Bianchino had to deliver the fresh milk to the surrounding villages was forced to remain in a shelter due to a storm . So he prepared the mozzarella and used it to protect the fresh milk and cream to conserve it finally closing it with two strings of straw: giving birth to a true treasure of the Italian gastronomic culture. Burrata is exceptional on toasted bread with some cold cuts, or on a pizza with culatello or raw ham; it also pairs very good with shrimps and anchovies.

Mortadella is a typical flavorful Emilian cold cut, which is usually made using the less noble parts of the pork. Differently from the average Mortadella Favola - Palmieri is obtained using only the shoulder of 100% Italian porks fed with natural animal feed, selecting meats coming from the breedings among the PDO Parma and San Daniele circuit, and it is gluten free too. Mortadella Favola is also the only which is stuffed and cooked in natural pork rind, using the stone ovens which have been active since the company foundation in 1961. Personally we think the best way to taste this incredible cold cut is one and only: Hot bread Stonebaked organic Pugliese type bread - Forno Astori, Mortadella Favola - Palmieri- and a final touch of Pistachio pesto - Azienda Agricola Biologica Adamo#.

The Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio DOP is available again from yesterday, but what does make this little tomato special and different from every other variety? Let's discover it together! The origin an history of this product has its root in the past and there are a lot of documents proving it. One of the most famous proof can be found the book "Degli ortaggi e la loro coltivazione preso la città di Napoli" published in 1858 by the writer Achille Bruni, in which the author wrote about these very flavorful cherry shape tomatoes that keep well until spring, as long as they are tied in bunches and and suspended in the air. The Pomodorino del piennolo DOP production area includes the entire Vesuvio volcanic complex, from the volcano slopes nearly to the sea level. The characteristics of the product for being part of the P.D.O. category are: the typical oval shape with a final tip, but the skin is what mostly differentiates this variety from the others. In fact as it is much more thick than the average, this allows the tomato to keep well for a very long time, also as a consequence of the long period of maturation too that leads to a longer endurance. Due to its skin thickness this tomato has to be cooked, so it is the ideal in dishes of pasta and many more Neapolitan recipes.

Today we want to describe you one of the symbol, maybe the symbol, of the Roman gastronomy: the Pasta all'Amatriciana. The Pasta alla'Amatriciana is a direct descendant of the pasta alla gricia, which is a dish of spaghetti seasoned with EVO oil, clack pepper, Roman Pecorino and guanciale, born in a village called Grisciano. The adding of tomato to the recipe is attributed to a Roman chef called Franceso Leonardi who cooked the first Amatriciana at the end of the XVII century at the court of the Pope, serving during an important institutional banquet a popular dish in perfect Roman style. The amatriciana, as many other pasta recipes, hasn't a strict and well defined disciplinary, there are different adding even depending on which ingredients you have at home, many variants which anyway maintain 3 fundamental ingredients as base: guanciale, tomato and Roman pecorino. Here you are our recipe Ingredients: 400 g of bucatini, 200 g of guanciale, 300 g of tomato sauce, 75 g of grated Roman pecorino, red chili pepper. Put the basta in boiled salted water looking at the cooking time on the pasta box and mixing it in order not to make it attach to the pot. Meanwhile brown the guanciale cut into small cubes (not too small) in a pan until it will be crispy. Then add the tomato sauce and the sliced red chili pepper and make it cook at low flame until the sauce get the right consistency. When the bucatini will be al dente drain them and amalgamate with the sauce stir frying them together adding the roman pecorino, serve them well hot.

Today we're going to introduce Italian pata negra: the Raw ham from the Calabrian Black Pork. Its similarities with the Iberian cousin are several, starting from the race of the pigs, in fact both of them have black coat, that is to say an hybrid between a wild boar and a pig. What differentiates the Calabrian black pork from the others is the slow growth of the animal, this leads to a better maturation of the meat but also to better nutritional values of raw ham containing omega 3 and omega 6 acid fats. These can normally be found only in fishes and seaweeds, their action combined in the right measure is beneficial for our health among which helping the prevention of cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension. Those its have an exceptional capacity to adapt themselves even to the most ostile ground, this is the reason why they still eat (mainly acorns, chestnuts and cereals) and live in the wild for the most of time. The consortium Nero di Calabria has put together many small selected local farm animals with the aim to give the right value and visibility to a product that has lacked in promotion and making of a brand in the past, but is as good as (or also better) other more well known high quality meats. One most exceptional product is the Raw Ham: it can be season up to 36 months having all the olfactory and taste characteristics which make it resembles Iberian jamon, with a sweet and creamy fat which melts in your mouth incredibly. Nero di Calabria products are completely artisanal, challenging the request of complete homogenization and homogeneity of tastes requires by the global markets.
