Perfect Pasta Night

The perfect pasta matched with the perfect pasta sauce! Our imported pasta is bronze cut, so what does this mean? It refers to how the pasta is made. Today most pastas are created using a Teflon system, which makes the pasta slippery and the sauce will come right off. Pastas that are created using the old world bronze cut technique have a much rougher surface area, which allows the sauce to stick to it and makes every bite packed with flavor! Plus, you'll see the difference when cooking our pasta because it's made of only high quality organic durum wheat semolina.…

Olive Oil Ice Cream Ingredients: 1 1/3 cup whole milk ½ cup Tantillo Extra-Virgin Olive Oil ½ cup granulated sugar pinch salt 1 cup heavy cream 6 large egg yolks Directions: Combine…

Picture this. You happen upon a small rustic taverna overlooking a port in the sundrenched village of Sissi on the island of Crete. A group of fishermen, just in from the morning’s catch, sit on the terrace, eating their midday meal with one hand and trading stories with the other. As you get closer, the smell of earthy spices, grilled fish and sautéed local greens fill the air. At the center of the table is a loaf of warm country bread, leavened just that morning, being pulled apart by hand and dipped lightly in olive oil seasoned with oregano, pepper…
