Even among picky Italians, Sicily is famous for the quality of its products. We have put together this gift box with a perfect recipe for one of our favourite Sicilian dishes: Sausage and Cherry Tomato Pasta.
This hamper contains:
. Fresh fennel Luganega sausages (400gr)
. Cherry tomato passata (212gr)
. Pecorino cheese (100gr)
. Carmiano Torteglioni pasta (500gr)
The hamper is available with the option to add a bottle of Nero d'Avola IGP Terre Siciliane 2016 by Nino Gandolfo, a ruby red wine from Sicily with hints of flower, that has been specially selected to work well with this recipe box.
This gift is presented in our elegant hamper with a silk ribbon and it comes with your personal, hand-written gift note, free of charge.
*As all of our products are made in very small batches in Italy, we may occasionally run out. If this is the case, we will replace it with something just as appetising and equal in value.
