onceUponBean.cluizel.jpg Once Upon a Bean (Cluizel)

Michel Cluizel imagined three presentation boxes to enable both amateurs and chocolate connoisseurs to discover and experiment with his great chocolate.

This box, "Il était une fève" which translates to “Once Upon A Bean...,” focusses on how chocolate is made, and includes cacao (the chocolate bean), cocoa powder, cocoa butter, cacao nibs, chocolate coins at various cocoa percentages, as well as white chocolate. The presentation box is perfect for a party or for gift-giving. Michel Cluizel has included tasting notes for a self-guided chocolate tasting experience.

This chocolate is so smooth, we recommend you take a piece and, instead of chewing, just let it melt in your mouth. It is a flavor and texture experience unlike any other chocolate you have ever had!

radici_organic_chianti_wine_jelly.jpg Radici Organic Chianti Red Wine Jelly

In the beautiful Tuscan hamlet of Loro Ciuffenna, Sandra Masi, Viviano Venturi, and their small, skilled crew produce an amazing variety of organic products. Their focus is on regional, traditionally-inspired dishes created from local recipes and containing heirloom cultivars. Their 100% organic product line is internationally acclaimed. All Radici products are known for pure, focused flavors that elevate any home-cooked meal to restaurant quality.

This wonderful jelly is created by slow cooking juicy, organic apples from the Arno valley with sweet spices, and Chianti red wine. The delicious result is a dense, 'Chianti-style' chutney, tailor-made as an accompaniment for beef, lamb, pork, poultry, and cheese plates. Great for freshening sauces, and perfect for creating your own exquisite glazes: simply paint it on pork, roasted chicken, or a holiday turkey!

Shelf stable. Refrigerate after opening.

OrganicPolenta.jpg Tenuta Castello Organic Polenta

The Vercellone family has cultivated grains in the heart of the Po Delta near Vercelli in the Piedmont region of Italy for over 100 years. Their Tenuta Castello products are certified organic; hand-weeded instead of treated by insecticides and herbicides. Furthermore, Tenuta Castello grains are processed in traditional mills that leave much of each kernel's substance intact without polishing or shining. The result: full flavor, structure and consistency, and a high nutrient content. Tenuta Castello Organic Polenta is the gold standard unrivaled by its peers or by industrial-scale grains. Artisan quality and full flavor are hallmarks of the entire Tenuta Castello line.

Chefs praise Tenuta Castello's organic, stone-ground, corn flour made from local varieties of "red" corn (Marano, Astice, and Quattro File). Its whole grain flavor, and rustic texture, distinguishes it from other non-artisanal polenta flours.

cambados_squid_ink.jpg Tinta de Calamar - Squid Ink (Conservas de Cambados) Jar

In the Mediterranean, squid ink is used in many recipes: Paella, risotto, black rice, soup, pasta, and of course Chipirones en su Tinta (squid in its own ink). It is also regularly included in seafood stews. In Italian cooking, it is used to prepare spaghetti al nero di seppia.

Squid ink contains numerous amino acids and polysaccharides, so in addition to being delicious in recipes, it is also known to have many health benefits including treating depression.

Yes this squid ink is the same ink that they squirt at their attackers in order to escape.

Conservas de Cambados is based in Galicia in Northeast Spain. This is the region of the Arousa Ría, which is well-known not just for its size, but also for the richness of its marine life.

Ingredients: cuttlefish ink, water, and salt.

3.2 ounce (90 gram) glass jar.
