Try the latest products from Cipriani, El Navarrico, and Kamiku – three brands that prioritize tradition and artisan ingredients that have been savored for generations.

Cipriani: Sip and Savor the Italian Way

Ah, there’s nothing like a sunny spring afternoon in Italy. Time slows down while friends and family meet for an iced cocktail and slow conversation. If you’re lucky enough to step off the cobblestone streets of Venice and spend time at the famous Harry’s Bar, you will be treated not as a tourist, but as a welcomed guest.

Birthplace of the famous Bellini cocktail, Harry’s Bar was founded by Cipriani, a name synonymous with luxury and culinary excellence. Four generations later, Cipriani, continues to lovingly craft gourmet Italian products in the traditional way.

Unleash your inner chef and get creative in the kitchen! Whether you're whipping up a classic spaghetti bolognese or experimenting with a new recipe, Cipriani's products are sure to take your culinary creations to the next level.

There’s nothing better for a bright spring day than fresh pasta. The Organic Egg Pasta Tagliarelle by Cipriani is crafted with the finest durum wheat semolina and slowly dried to deliver a flavorful dining experience. To enjoy it at its best, simply cook the tagliarelle to al dente perfection and toss it with your favorite sauce. Make sure to top it with fresh basil and olive oil for that special finishing touch.

This Zero Zero Rosegold Alcohol-free Sparkling Drink by Cipriani offers a sophisticated alternative for those seeking a refreshing beverage without that familiar next-day headache. With its delicate bubbles and fruity notes, it's perfect for sipping on its own as a guilt-free treat or for pairing with light salads and seafood dishes.

El Navarrico: Artisan Ingredients from Northern Spain

Next up, we're jetting off to the picturesque region of Navarra, Spain, home to El Navarrico. From succulent vegetables to mouthwatering preserves, El Navarrico's products bring the flavor of Northern Spain straight to your table.

Ask any Spaniard and you’ll be told that the secret to their flavorful cuisine is simple: fresh, whole ingredients. Honing their artisan craft over three generations, the family is dedicated to preserving the natural resources of the region. They control the quality of the product from the initial planting of the seeds all the way to the bottling process. Each sun-ripened tomato and plump pepper is handpicked at the peak of freshness for optimal flavor.

Use their roasted vegetables to elevate your salads, or add a dollop of their homemade tomato sauce to your favorite pasta dishes. With El Navarrico, the only limit is your imagination.

You won’t be able to say no to their star product: Roasted Piquillo Peppers! These vibrant red gems are roasted to perfection, imparting a smoky sweetness that pairs perfectly with everything from grilled meats to creamy cheeses.

Incorporate them into sandwiches, salads, or tapas, or use them as a flavorful topping for pizzas and bruschettas.

The secret to a truly authentic paella always rests in the stock. You can have the freshest seafood and veggies but with a weak stock, your dish won’t come close to the complex taste of Spain’s national dish. Make it easy on yourself by ordering El Navarrico's Fish Stock Fumet, a rich and flavorful base for creating authentic Spanish seafood dishes like paella.

Simply incorporate it into your paella recipe as a simmering liquid, allowing its deep seafood flavors to infuse into the rice and seafood.

Kamiku: For the Love of Artisan Sheep's Cheese

Nothing brings people together like a really good piece of cheese. Just ask the husband and wife team at Kamiku!

This Spanish cheese company is celebrated for its artisanal sheep cheeses. Crafted with quality ingredients sourced from their lovingly cared-for herd of Lacaune sheep, their award-winning cheeses are a true labor of love.

Made in the heart of the wild Western Pyrenees, no part of the cheesemaking process is rushed. Handmade from raw, unpasteurized milk, their cheeses are protected by a natural mold.

Kamiku's cheeses are incredibly versatile, perfect for cheese platters or enhancing pasta dishes with their distinctive flavors. Committed to sustainability, Kamiku ensures every bite supports ethical and sustainable practices, making them a symbol of Spanish culinary excellence.

Kamiku's Smoked Cured Sheep's Cheese boasts a rich, smoky flavor profile that perfectly complements its creamy texture, making it a delightful addition to any cheese board or culinary creation. Simply slice it thinly and pair it with crusty bread, charcuterie, and a drizzle of honey for a gourmet experience that will make any get-together feel special.
