This week's featured item

LimoPods.jpg Aji Limo Organic Pods (dried)

Aji Limo is a chili grown and used mostly on the northern coast of Peru. The pod is 2-3 inches long and changes from a yellow to deep reddish orange color when it ripens. Aji limo is spicy (a heat level of 8 on a scale of 10; 60,000 Scoville units) and is primarily used to prepare ceviche and rice dishes. It is also wonderful as a base for chicken and pasta recipes.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.

savini_sliced_black_truffle.jpg Savini Sliced Black Truffle

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 the 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: 62% Italian black truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), olive oil, salt, aroma, garlic, aromatic herbs, spice.

Average rating:

Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."

The finest of tunas from the Basque region of Spain (Bay of Biscay in northern Spain). Only the best of the catch is selected to ensure exceptional taste, freshness and quality. It is fished using traditional hook and line methods, thus preserving the wonderful texture and flavor which is often lost when fishing with nets. This dolphin-free tuna is then gently cleaned by hand.

This exceptional white meat tuna has the solid texture, and hearty flavor, of Bonito tuna which is very different from albacore. It is packed in high-quality Spanish olive oil for extra flavor, and is all natural, with no additives or preservatives.

We use it for tuna sandwiches, stuffing piquillo peppers, on salads, paired with grilled fennel, and on crackers for appetizers.

AjiAmarillo_paste.jpg Aji Amarillo Organic Paste

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). Although they are named yellow pepper their color changes to orange as they mature. Great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and 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. This fruitiness is full-bodied and even subtle, unlike poblanos or jalapenos which can be harsh. It is a very versatile chili, suitable for everyday use as it will complement your dish without overwhelming it.
