Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique. Recipe by chef Carlo Bresciani

Fusilli alla norma

Fusilli alla norma

A recipe given to us by Pantaleo, a company located in Fasano di Puglia, southern Italia. This is an “oil-centred” dish, hence the extra virgin employed, Selezione Oro, is one of its key features. How fruity should an oil be to pair with ingredients such as pasta, aubergine, tomato, basil leaves? What is best, light, intermediate or intense fruitiness?

Strangozzi & Meatballs by Lidia Bastianich

Strangozzi & Meatballs by Lidia Bastianich

This is one of the most popular and recognized Italian dishes in America that is not eaten in Italy. Strange, you might say, but it is a dish that evolved from the kitchens of the early Italian immigrants in America. It has become one of the favorite recipes in Lidia’s Family Table. Here in America meat was abundant, unlike in Italy, so on Sunday the day of families gathering at the table, the sauce for the strangozzi was enriched with meatballs. What more can I say, except for mangia!
