CASA OLEARIA TAGGIASCA / Galateo&Friends
Galateo&Friends is moving forward with Food loves Fashion and is proud to present its new chapter: the most colorful food collection designed by no less than Enrico Coveri, an iconic Italian brand which marked an epoch for its unique use of colours and prints. The capsule includes a red grape vinegar from Chianti wine and a Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil, a Sicilian salt and a small porcelain dipping dish an epic design. The taggiasca oil is a genuine oil, with a delicate and gentle scent and a sweet and fragrant aroma, tending toward a delicate taste of almond. It is produced with ripe olives of "Taggiasca" quality, respecting the ancient methods handed down for many centuries. Matches: fish recipes, rice based dishes, white meat, delicate sauces, patisserie. Thanks to its slightly fruity fragrance and to its marked sweet sensation, it exalts the food characteristics, without firmly interfering on the taste of the dish. The vinegar was obtained from selected grapes from small farms in Tuscany. The acetification process is completed in small oak barrels where the vinegar continues to mature for at least a year. Aging in wood gives the product amber reflections and greatly improves its organoleptic aspect thanks to the passage of noble wood tannins in the vinegar. A few drops enhance its strength and harmonious aroma. This Chianti vinegar is fit for various dishes, from appetizers to desserts; suitable for emulsion (vinaigrette) with extra virgin olive oil for fresh vegetable seasoning and meat soaking The Fior di Sale is a sea-salt hand-gathered at the salt-pans from Sicily in Italy, following the age-old method traditionally used by the local craftsmen. It is allowed to dry in the sun and wind. It is obtained without using chemical products so that it retains its natural magnesium and calcium content as well as other trace elements. "Fior di sale" has a characteristically fine and light crystalline texture. It is an excellent-quality naturally white salt and is very rare. Not having been washed, all its natural richness is preserved in full. It is recommended for highlighting the flavours of vegetables, crudités, seafood and grilled food. All those products are packed in an extraordinary gift box: the perfect mix of colour and style.
