Need a gift for a cherished friend who just happens to be an Italian Foodie? How about treating yourself to a monthly package of some of the finest Italian products found in this country?
We've got just the thing! Nonna Elena's Box will show up at your door once a month - with ingredients that you need for some of our favorite recipes. We'll even include the recipe if it's not already in "There are Rules".
And then, we're going to put into that box a little gift, right from Italy. Hand printed note cards, or hand woven cocktail napkins, or ceramic dishes. Each item will come with a note to explain where they came from, how they were made, and by whom. Many of these artisans are dear friends, and you will think of them as friends, also!
BUT WAIT. There's more!
Each box will include little flash cards with Italian phrases on one side and the English equivalent on the other. It's a great way to learn conversational Italian.
In addition to the flash cards, Nonna Elena's Box will also contain what we call the Italian Culture Card!
How is Parmigiano-Reggiano made? What's the difference between Parmigiano-Reggiano and Grana Padana?
If both Chianti and Brunello are made with Sangiovese grapes, why are they different?
If I order my favorite Latte coffee in Italy, why do I get a glass of milk?
Each month we'll explain something about Italian culture that you always wanted to know, but didn't know who to ask.
