Edmond Fallot - Stone-Ground Traditional Dijon Mustard
It is rarer and rarer to see families committed to artisan cuisine and the traditional way of crafting gourmet food. Edmond Fallot is proud to be the last independent and family mustard mill in Burgandy, the Dijon area of France where this eponymous mustard was created.
The company has a rich history, passing the tradition of Dijon mustard down through generations. Founded in 1840, they quickly gained recognition for their quality products. The business continued to thrive with the introduction of new recipes and the arrival of Edmond Fallot in 1928.
In today’s modern world, Edmond Fallot remains committed to modernizing while preserving traditional methods, such as the slow stone-grinding of seeds. Visitors can even stop by the mill and enjoy an interactive tour that showcases the craftsmanship and heritage of mustard making.
Their dedication to quality and innovation was further recognized when their "BurgundyMustard" obtained a Geographical Protected Indication (P.G.I.), a mark of quality recognized by France and Europe.
The Edmon Fallot Original Dijon Mustard is a classic for a reason. Try it on a piece of crusty bread with aged cheese, whisked up in a vinaigrette over tossed arugula, or even add it to your scrambled eggs for a kick! If you want to explore the collection, try the unexpected flavors of the Green Tarragon Mustard or the Honey Balsamic Dijon Mustard for a bit of sweetness.

Pastificio G. Di Martino - Beautifully Crafted Pasta
Pasta is a go-to dish for keeping family or guests happy. There’s no comparing mass-produced pasta with the high-quality collection of pasta from Pastificio G. di Martino.
The Di Martino family has a rich history in pasta-making, starting with the founder, Giuseppe Di Martino, who began learning the secrets of pasta production as a child. In 1912, he established the Pastificio Di Martino, winning worldwide recognition for its high-quality products. Despite facing challenges during World War II, the family persevered, rebuilding the pasta factory after an earthquake in 1980. Three generations later, Giuseppe and Giovanna Di Martino continue the family's legacy of quality, craftsmanship, innovation, and a deep connection to their territory
What makes their pasta different? It’s created with a bronze die, resulting in a porous texture so the sauce sticks, then slowly dried at low temperatures. All their pasta is made with 100% Italian durum wheat semolina and local spring water.
The Rigatoni and Spaghetti are obvious best-sellers. The taste of the pasta by itself is so good, that you only need some high-quality tomato sauce and fresh basil to create a classic, delicious dish. If you want to try it all, then the Essential Pasta Set is the way to go.
Nobleza del Sur - Olive Oil Made the Traditional Way
Good olive oil is an absolutely essential ingredient in any kitchen. We take pride in our collection of amazing olive oils, highlighting the line from Nobleza del Sur, a sustainable olive oil company.
Nobelza del Sur embodies a deep love and commitment to the olive trees that define the landscape of Jaén. Tracing the company’s roots back to 1640, the Peñuelas-Sagra family has dedicated themselves to maintaining and nurturing their 300 hectares of olive groves across 12 generations.
They use their own mill to ensure the exceptional quality of their oil. This little section of Andalucia, Spain benefits from a unique continental Mediterranean microclimate and fertile lands near the Guadalimar River. Their extra virgin oils come with distinct characteristics that reflect the soil, climate, and fruitiness of the olives.
Drizzle their floral and aromatic Organic Night Olive Oil over fresh summer salads and mix it in sauces. This award-winning olive oil is also the perfect finish for meats and fish.
