A crowd favorite for both cooking and entertaining. This gift bundle is made around the idea of a dinner party, with items included for three courses.
Start with the Bello Rustico Crostini. This classic Italian crostini has a light, crisp flavor and makes a fantastic accompaniment to soft cheeses, spreads and fruit. Our favorite use is with bleu cheese, sliced fig nuts and the Maison de Monaco Peach & Lavender Jam. The subtle flavors of peach & lavender mix perfectly to create a mellow yet distinctive taste. This jam is made with 70% fruit and minimal sugar, cooked on low heat to maintain the freshness of the fruit. Try it with crostini, ice cream, yogurt or cream cheese.
The Crostini also pairs nicely with the Cucina & Amore Artichoke Bruschetta. This traditional Italian appetizer with hearty artichokes, olive oil and cheese can also be added to fresh breads and charcuterie. It's all natural with no preservatives, non-GMO and gluten free.
When it's time for the main course, you have plenty of delicious options. The Chateau White Garlic Marinade is a hearty garlic marinade that pairs wonderfully with chicken and seafood. It creates a nice finish of garlic, olive oil, bell peppers and spices. If you opt for chicken, the Gourmet Poultry Rub is a must. Make your poultry stand out with this wonderful blend of garlic, onion, orange peel, parsley, bell pepper, paprika and cilantro. It adds a nice savory zest to otherwise plain poultry. We love this rub on baked whole chicken.
The Herbs de Provence is excellent for infusing a delicate herbal flavor into grilled and stewed foods. This delightful combination of lavender, savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme and oregano pairs beautifully with fish, meats and vegetable soups before cooking. For an added savory finish, the Coarse Himalayan Pink Salt is excellent. This visually distinctive pink coarse ground salt has a softer finish than traditional sea salt. Use it in place of regular salt for a more fresh and subtle flavoring.
