Raymond Blanc, owner of the Michelin 2-Star Restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, says "Belazu's Balsamic Vinegar is a must have ingredient in any kitchen, we wouldn't be without it at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons."

Carefully produced by a small family firm in Modena, Italy, this exceptional traditional balsamic vinegar is a blend of cooked Trebbiano grape must (unfermented grape juice) and red wine vinegar. Over time, the blend evaporates in a series of wooden casks and the natural fruit sugars in the must contribute to the viscosity, and sweetness, of this remarkable vinegar.

The Good Housekeeping Institute Taste Test (August 2002, UK Edition) voted Belazu 1st Choice, stating that Belazu was a deep, rich brown vinegar with a thick, treacly consistency, a delicious oak flavour, hints of caramelised sugar and good contrast to the sharp acidity. You cannot imagine how good and mellow this is.

Belazu Balsamic Vinegar is great on:

  • grilled or roasted asparagus, vegetables, and potatoes
  • hard Italian cheeses
  • strawberries and ice cream
  • a caprese salad. It really makes this already wonderful dish incredible.
    • A little bit will do it, but we always tend to put on just a touch more.
  • hot pizza fresh out of the oven. Belazu gives it an outstanding flavor!

Belazu is our favorite Balsamic Vinegar and we highly recommend you try a bottle!

The Griottines® recipe uses the special Oblachinska Morello Cherry. This cherry is only grown in the Balkans, and is known for its unique taste. During harvest each cherry is hand-picked, leaving the stalk behind. A rigorous sort process selects the best cherries, and within 6 hours of harvesting the first maceration occurs. This artisanal process, and attention to detail, preserves the special flavor and physical properties of the cherries. The Morello cherries, and the liqueur, through natural osmosis, become something magical. Another sort process selects only the perfect cherries. The pit of each cherry is then carefully removed through the hole left by the missing stalk. The cherries look whole but do not have the pit. These depitted cherries are then macerated in different liqueurs for different time periods based on a secret, traditional recipe. They are delivered to you for maximum enjoyment!

Average rating:

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Since the 1920s, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has passed down over four generations.

The truffles are individually selected by Luciano and Cristiano Savini. They are personally out with the truffle hunters in the heart of Tuscany so they can guarantee the highest quality and ensure the origin of each and every truffle. The production of truffle products, like this exceptional truffle butter, is then carried out using traditional methods and solely at the request of the importer. This guarantees both the freshness of the product and the 'shelf life'. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest butter available. Large visible pieces of real truffle are in every jar.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some truffle butter.
  • Put it on hot baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fries.
  • Place a spoonful on your hot steak and watch it explode with truffle flavor.
  • A little bit with seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Truffle butter for lobster? ABSOLUTELY!
  • Add a heaping teaspoon to your risotto 5 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Toast some bread, spread some truffle butter on it, add a touch of grated parmesan cheese, and serve as an appetizer.
  • Mix together an egg yolk, a teaspoon of truffle butter, copious amounts of grated parmesan cheese, and two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil as a sauce for pasta.
  • Rub it on a hot ear of corn on the cob.

Acquerello Carnaroli Rice (aged 7 years)
Acquerello Carnaroli Rice (aged 7 years) Acquerello Carnaroli Rice (aged 7 years)
Please click on the product image to read the customer reviews
Average rating:

"Acquerello is the Rolls Royce of rice." - Alain Ducasse

"Acquerello is one of the very last authentic products." - Frédy Girardet

We are the only direct to consumer retailer of the 7 year aged Acquerello Carnaroli rice. All the rest of this rare and fabulous product goes straight to prestigious restaurants around the world!

One of the key points to perfection is the aging process. To age properly, the freshly harvested crop must be stored, as long as possible, in unique steel silos at a constant controlled temperature, because during this period the starch, combined with the oxygen, optimizes its culinary characteristics.

Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened, and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family.

It is the ultimate rice: first the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least seven years, then it is whitened slowly using "The Helix" where grains rub gently one against the other, and finally it is restored with its most precious element, the embryo or germ. This re-enrichment of the refined rice with its germ restores the most valuable nutrients of brown rice.

Known as the "king" or the "caviar" of Italian rices, Carnaroli is the preferred risotto rice in most regions of Italy. Acquerello Carnaroli rice is classified as "Extra rice" for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in unique enameled tins.

Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto. For instance, Arborio rice is widely available, and sometimes suggested, for risotto. We are not fans of Arborio for risotto. Compared to Arborio, Carnaroli rice has a smaller grain size, and higher starch content. This means Carnaroli can absorb larger amounts of liquid, and thus flavor, from the wine and broth, without overcooking. So your risotto is more flavorful when you use Carnaroli rice. Also, the higher starch content in Carnaroli rice guarantees an ultra-creamy texture that is the hallmark of a superior risotto.

Acquerello's grains stay perfectly intact, absorb flavors exceptionally well, do not bind together, and do not lose starch, proteins, or vitamins. Therefore your risotto is fully consistent, tasty, creamy, and not sticky. Acquerello risotto will always be outstanding.

Acquerello is used in the finest restaurants around the world:

  • The French Laundry, USA (Thomas Keller)
  • Osteria Francescana, Italy (Massimo Bottura)
  • Troisgros, France (Michael Troisgros)
  • The Fat Duck, England (Heston Blumenthal)

The Carnaroli rice cultivated at Colombara, being the only variety sown since 1997, is 100% pure and therefore produces uncontaminated Carnaroli seeds.

Once you have tried it, you will never look back!

Pure Walnut Oil (J. Leblanc)
Pure Walnut Oil (J. Leblanc) Pure Walnut Oil (J. Leblanc)
Please click on the product image to read the customer reviews
Average rating:

J. Leblanc has changed little since 1878, the year it was founded. It is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, grandson of the founder. It is still located in the southern most village of Burgundy, Iguerande, and it still manufactures the highest quality, small-batch, handcrafted nut oils in France.... if not the world.

J. Leblanc starts with the careful selection of the absolute highest quality whole nuts available, grown on many of the same farms that J. Leblanc has been doing business with for generations. For each batch of oil about fifty-four pounds of nuts are ground into a paste using the huilerie's original granite mill. In order to guarantee an even roast, this paste is constantly stirred in a roaster for 10 minutes. The roasted paste is then transferred to a mechanical press where it is divided in half and separated with filter cloth. The oil is expressed at 22,000 pounds of mechanical pressure. After pressing, the oil rests from seven-to-fourteen days to allow the sediment to settle before bottling. This is a labor, and time, intensive process which produces only 300 liters a day. These nut oils are pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, and unrefined.

J. Leblanc nut oils are made to order.

One of the most important facts about Huilerie Leblanc's production is not the "how" but the "when". Since Huilerie Leblanc does not have large storage facilities, or refining capabilities, production takes place when orders come in - guaranteeing the freshest nut oils delivered to your door. It's not only a difference you can taste - in their clean, bright, and deep flavors, but also extends their longevity by up to a year.

In the United States, J. Leblanc is finding its way to renowned restaurants like The French Laundry, Mandalay Bay, Delfina, Campanelli, One Market, 231 Ellis, and Hawthorn Lane to name a few!

  • Nut oils can be used for salad dressings with quality vinegar such as champagne, Banyuls, sherry, or raspberry. The usual ratio is three parts oil to one part vinegar.

Please refrigerate J. Leblanc nut oils after opening.

Piment dEspelette Powder AOP - La Maison Du Piment (250 gram)
Piment d'Espelette Powder AOP - La Maison Du Piment (250 gram) Be the first one to write a review

Piment d’Espelette is famous for its modulated, food-friendly heat as well as its "sweet red pepper" perfume, which bring wonderful layers of flavor to your dishes.

The A.O.P. (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) designation means that this coveted spice can come only from the tiny, 22-square-kilometer region in and around Espelette, the French Basque town in a hilly, verdant region near Bayonne. The restricted area and precarious weather conditions of the Basque region limit the supplies of this precious spice.

Commercial cultivation of this spice originally began as a product of housewives’ gardens. Women grew the peppers in small quantities for home meals and sold the excess for pocket money. In fact, Marie-Jeanne, the mother of our producer at La Maison du Piment, Vincent Darrichion, was one of those women! She launched her family into the espelette business from her own kitchen garden.

The entire harvest is done by hand. The toil begins in late March, when the seeds must be sprouted in the greenhouse. Then in April, the seedlings are teased apart and placed into individual pots where they are tended in the greenhouse until they are about 18 inches tall. When the size is right, they are hand planted in the field. The peppers are like "indeterminate" tomatoes in that they ripen over a period of time. So the harvest can take a month or more, with many passes through the fields, as the farmer individually snaps or cuts the stem of each ripe pepper, being very careful to keep the top of the pepper intact so it will not be subject to rot. After the harvest, the peppers go back to the greenhouse where they are sun/air dried on wooden trays. The final step in this artisanal slow-drying process involves stacking these trays in a low-temperature oven for several hours to achieve the perfect texture.

The A.O.P. rules strictly govern the growing area, cultivation practices, drying protocol, and the size (mesh) of the Espelette powder itself. A.O.P. thus guarantees you are getting authentic Piment d'Espelette!

  • Mix with sea salt, paprika, and cumin, rub over a pork chop or loin, and bake.
  • Add Piment d’Espelette and a little lemon juice to your favorite mayonnaise. Dip fried potatoes or steamed artichokes in it.
  • Add it to your popcorn butter for a new twist on a classic snack.
  • Use it to season creamy roasted red pepper soup.
  • Season baked, roasted, or mashed potatoes.... sprinkle it on your french fries!
  • Season chicken or pork.
  • Grill shrimp with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with Piment d’Espelette.
  • Perfect on grilled, baked, and sauteed fish.

Average rating:

Aji amarillo, or amarillo chili, is the most common type of aji and is one of the most important ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It has a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10 (50,000 Scoville units). It is great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and is used to season nuts.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat. It is a very versatile chili that will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

We are so proud to be able to offer you our own branded extra virgin olive oil. Our goal was simple, to find an amazing extra virgin olive oil from Italy for daily use. We asked for it to be full bodied and delicious. We also asked for a price point below $20.

The wonderful people at Trampetti came through with their leccino/frantoio olive blend. They continued to meet the highest standards, as one would expect from Trampetti, and meet our goals as well.

The Trampetti farm is located in the prestigious Assisi-Spoleto hills of Umbria’s “gold coast” olive zone. There Massimo Sisani, third-generation descendant of Eugenio Trampetti, and Federico Bibi, Umbrian agricultural specialist, dedicate themselves to the production of one of the finest organic extra virgin olive oils in Italy. Same day, state-of-the-art mechanical (vs.chemical extraction which is inferior) processing of early hand picked olives results in an extra virgin olive oil with intense yet harmonious palate.

Trampetti’s high polyphenol levels (indicating quality of fruit) and low free oleic acidity levels (indicating freshness) have perennially put it at the top of all Italian extra virgin oils.

Produced and bottled by Trampetti with olives grown, harvested, and pressed at the Trampetti Estate in Italy.

This Casina Rossa extra virgin olive oil with black truffles (Tuber Aestivum which is the summer black truffle found in Europe) is aromatic yet subtle, extremely versatile, and great on risottos, pastas, pizzas, and popcorn! A real piece of truffle is in every bottle.

Nicola DeLaurentiis and his wife Paola operate Casina Rossa in the Abruzzo region of Italy. They are driven to tirelessly invent, improve, innovate, and refine their products.

Casina Rossa produces this extra virgin olive oil with black truffle by traditionally cultivating and harvesting Gentile, Intosso, and Ghiandaro olives from their family-owned trees. By coupling these traditional methods with modern continuous cycle processing, they produce a first class extra virgin olive oil. Try this extra virgin olive oil with black truffle on antipasti, risottos, and pastas.

Produced and bottled by Casina Rossa with olives grown, harvested, and pressed at the Casina Rossa Estate in Italy.

Do not be fooled by other truffle oils that use grape seed, sunflower, safflower, or even "olive oil"... if they went cheap on the oil you know they went cheap on the truffle. Demand "extra virgin olive oil," the best. Plus those other "truffle oils" do NOT have actual pieces of truffle in them, another cost cutting step which gives your truffle oil a chemically taste. So they went cheap on the truffle too.

Only buy truffle oils, like this one, that use extra virgin olive oil and that have actual pieces of REAL TRUFFLE in EVERY bottle. That way you can guarantee you will get the pure truffle flavor you expect, and demand.

It is a difference you can taste!

Rich in vitamins D and B12, they are also an excellent source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.

The Spanish believe canned seafood is a delicacy to be shared and enjoyed! They take great pride, and great care, to harvest the best seafood and package it with the utmost care. The result is the purest, most delicate, and exquisite tasting seafood on the planet! A true delicacy.

Do NOT be fooled by other sardines. Conservas de Cambados makes a "Gourmet" line, which is their highest quality, and the ONLY ones we sell. "Gourmet" is clearly at the top of the front label as shown in the photo, the "Conservas de Cambados" logo is prominently displayed, and the tin is rectangular with rounded corners. Their other line "Bogar/Alamar" is made with imported seafood (not from Spain) or with lower quality seafood from outside of Galicia.

Salish - Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt (fine) - Cork Top Glass Jar
Salish - Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt (fine) - Cork Top Glass Jar Be the first one to write a review

Salish is a fine grain sea salt that is cold smoked over real Northwest red alderwood to give a clean, natural smoky flavor. No artificial flavors, colors, or liquid smoke is used to create this beautiful salt.

Salish refers to a cultural or ethnographic designation of a subgroup of the First Nations or Native American cultures in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon who speak one of the Coast Salish languages. As the first inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest, they have used the red alderwood of the Northwest to smoke meats and salmon for hundreds of years. We are proud to be able to bring to you this salt, created in the ancient Northwest smoking tradition.

Salish gives food a genuine smokehouse taste on or off the BBQ.

The ultimate for cooking fish, chicken, or steak. We love it on salmon, fresh avocado slices, creamy pasta dishes, and it is great in soups!

Piment d’Espelette is famous for its modulated, food-friendly heat as well as its "sweet red pepper" perfume, which bring wonderful layers of flavor to your dishes.

The A.O.P. (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) designation means that this coveted spice can come only from the tiny, 22-square-kilometer region in and around Espelette, the French Basque town in a hilly, verdant region near Bayonne. The restricted area and precarious weather conditions of the Basque region limit the supplies of this precious spice.

Commercial cultivation of this spice originally began as a product of housewives’ gardens. Women grew the peppers in small quantities for home meals and sold the excess for pocket money. In fact, Marie-Jeanne, the mother of our producer at La Maison du Piment, Vincent Darrichion, was one of those women! She launched her family into the espelette business from her own kitchen garden.

The entire harvest is done by hand. The toil begins in late March, when the seeds must be sprouted in the greenhouse. Then in April, the seedlings are teased apart and placed into individual pots where they are tended in the greenhouse until they are about 18 inches tall. When the size is right, they are hand planted in the field. The peppers are like "indeterminate" tomatoes in that they ripen over a period of time. So the harvest can take a month or more, with many passes through the fields, as the farmer individually snaps or cuts the stem of each ripe pepper, being very careful to keep the top of the pepper intact so it will not be subject to rot. After the harvest, the peppers go back to the greenhouse where they are sun/air dried on wooden trays. The final step in this artisanal slow-drying process involves stacking these trays in a low-temperature oven for several hours to achieve the perfect texture.

The A.O.P. rules strictly govern the growing area, cultivation practices, drying protocol, and the size (mesh) of the Espelette powder itself. A.O.P. thus guarantees you are getting authentic Piment d'Espelette!

Hog Heaven Spice Blend

Same great product, new label design!

Pollen Ranch hand harvests wild fennel pollen from private organic farms in California where fennel grows wild. They not only offer pure fennel and dill pollens, but Chef Bernard has taken these pollens to the next level, combining them with other herbs and spices to create a very special line of spice blends to complement and enhance vegetables, seafood, poultry, pork, beef, lamb, and even desserts!!

Your pork and chicken will never be the same when they’re encrusted in this warm and toasty herb and seasoning blend. Crushed pecans give a nutty flavor, and cumin adds a touch of savory smoke that goes perfectly with any pork or poultry dish. Light citrus tones brighten and balance the flavor of this warm, aromatic blend. Add a dash to your chicken and dumplings to add depth of flavor, or roll a pork tenderloin in it before roasting for a mellow spiciness that compliments the tender pork exquisitely. Nutty, flavorful, and delectable, this will be your "go to" seasoning for poultry and pork.

This is a "secret ingredient" that will surprise and amaze your guests.

Balsamina Cattani Balsamic Jelly
Balsamina Cattani Balsamic Jelly Be the first one to write a review

Balsamina is a balsamic jelly made from an aged balsamic condiment. The sweetness of this decadent condiment dances on your tongue.

This is one of our favorite products, unique and quite special. It pairs perfectly with creamy cheeses and cured meats. We recently had it on smoked sturgeon as an appetizer, and of course we pull it out over Thanksgiving instead of the traditional cranberry sauce. Spreading it on slices of roasted turkey is simply divine! It has a magical flavor, and great mouth feel, that you don't get anywhere else. Please give it a try and find out why we went all the way to Italy to bring it back for you.

Perfect for your own kitchens, and it makes a beautiful gift in its thick-glass, wide-mouthed jar. Cattani has developed this jam especially for us, upholding our high standards of quality and our commitment to the best flavors the Mediterranean has to offer.

Belazu Organic Argan Oil
Belazu Organic Argan Oil Be the first one to write a review

A unique oil with a mildly toasted, nutty flavor. It is known as "the golden oil."

The Argan tree is unique to the South Western corner of Morocco and is called the "tree of life" due to the importance of this tree, and its fruit and oil, to Moroccan traditions and culture. This remarkable organic Argan oil is made by cold pressing the seeds inside the nut of the Argan fruit. It takes 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of fruit to produce just 1 liter (33.8 fluid ounces) of oil, meaning it is an extremely labor intensive oil to produce.

Once the fruit ripens, it is harvested and laid out in the sun to dry. The flesh of the fruit is removed, and the hard shell of the nut is cracked to remove the almond shaped kernels inside. These are gently toasted and, once cooled, ground in a stone ‘rotary quern’, similar to a stone pestle and mortar. The resulting nut paste is then massaged by hand to extract the luscious oil.

Rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acids, and with a high unsaturated fatty acid content (over 80%), this unique organic Argan oil is full of health-giving properties. Vitamin E promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails, and the unsaturated fatty acids are great for keeping the heart healthy and lowering cholesterol levels. Initial tests indicate it may reverse the metabolic changes that occur from a high sugar diet, thus being a natural aid in the fight against diabetes; and the high levels of antioxidants show promise in fighting cancer. It is light in color with a reddish tinge and it is milder in flavor than sesame or walnut oil, yet its taste is distinctly nutty. Traditionally used for cooking tagines and dressing couscous, organic Argan oil also adds a unique and wonderful flavor to salads and other North African dishes.

A few serving ideas:

  • Mix organic Argan oil with honey and yogurt like the Berbers do for a nutritious breakfast.
  • Make amlou: a mixture of Argan oil, honey, and crushed almonds. It tastes a little like peanut butter and is great on toast.
    • 1/2 pound roasted Marcona Almonds
    • 1/2 to 2/3 cup Belazu Organic Argan Oil
    • 1/3 cup raw honey
    • In a food processor, or mortar and pestle, finely grind the almonds. Add the Organic Argan Oil a tablespoon at a time. Now add the honey until the desired sweetness is achieved. Serve in a small bowl with slices of pita bread for dipping

This organic Argan oil is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and is gluten-free.

Rural Moroccans always knew Argan oil was good for you, inside and out. They actually rub their faces with their hands after eating a couscous dressed with Argan oil. In the spirit of that tradition, we can also recommend it for its beauty uses!! Since this oil is organic AND "food grade" it is higher in quality than those other "cosmetic grade" oils on the market today.

This product may not be suitable for nut allergy sufferers.

Packed in France from Moroccan oil.

José Páez Lobato is a family enterprise that specializes in the making of fine sherry vinegar. The Bodega, or cellar, was founded in 1933 by Francisco Paez Sanchez, and is now managed by his sons.

This 50 year old sherry vinegar is characterized by its amber color, delicate smell, and unique taste... all of which are due to a careful and prolonged aging process. Gran Capirete is aged in American Oak barrels, and the solera that gave birth to it was established in 1946 (so it is actually 70 years old!). It has an unforgettable flavor, with a hint of nuttiness. This vinegar is drier than balsamic vinegar and has an acidity of 8º.

The production and quality of sherry vinegar is monitored and controlled by the Consejo Regulador, and sherry vinegar has its own Denominacion de Origen (D.O.) which is protected by Spanish and EU law. This vinegar carries the D.O. Vinagre de Jerez stamp of approval.

Its complexity and depth of flavor greatly enhances soups, stews, sauces, casseroles, marinades, and dressings.

Sliced Black Truffles (Savini)
Sliced Black Truffles (Savini) Be the first one to write a review

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Starting in the 1920s, and continuing to this day, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has spanned over four generations.

During the harvest, the truffle gatherers collect both large and small truffles. The biggest ones are sold fresh to restaurants, while the smaller ones, with equally impressive flavor, are sliced, and through a very special proprietary method, preserved in olive oil. The flavor is identical to the fresh truffles, with the added benefit that you can keep them unopened in your kitchen for more than a year, and thus can have "fresh truffle flavor" anytime on a moment's notice.

These sliced black truffles are of the highest quality, and the Savini family ensures the origin of each and every truffle. This guarantees both the quality and freshness. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest truffles available.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some sliced black truffles.
  • Stuff sliced black truffles under the skin of a chicken before roasting.
  • Add some slices to freshly cooked pasta... amazing!
  • A few slices on hot seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Mix them into your risotto 15 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Save the olive oil, and you have authentic truffle oil!

Ingredients: 50% Italian black truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), olive oil, salt, truffle flavor, garlic, herbs, spice.

Shelf stable. Refrigerate after opening.
