Typical pastry from Abruzzo made with a production process that has not changed over the centuries, which involves the use of ferro for cooking, an essential double-slabbed and slightly hollow tool, which gives the Neole their peculiar rhombus-shaped look. Every family used to have a ferro and, as a proof of its importance, it was part of the bride’s inventory. In many cases, the central part of this tool had the family’s coat of arms, therefore when the bride was giving her Neole, the coat of arms of her own ferro represented a proper signature. Nowadays, there are plenty of versions of this speciality, even though they must traditionally be crispy, thin and with anise seeds, just the way Rustichella d’Abruzzo proposes it. According to tradition, cooking time must equal the duration of the Ave Maria on one side and the Lord’s Prayer on the other. You can try it with a bit of powdered sugar and cinnamon or stuffed with Rustichella “Sclucchiata di uva Montepulciano d’Abruzzo”. Its refined packaging can be created only by those who have a great passion for tradition.

Carnaroli rice was created in 1945 by mixing Vialone rice and Lencino rice, the latter having not a small, rather a lengthened grain like the former. Concerning quality, Carnaroli can be considered the best type of rice and it somehow represents excellence among all of the Italian types. Starch from Carnaroli rice is the richest in amylose, a substance which helps keep the grain firm and always ‘al dente’. Its incomparable feature is mainly the excellent capability of absorbing aromas and condiments and releasing starch while being cooked, in order to blend and intensify the tastes of different foods. Therefore, it is suitable also for preparing rich and tasty salads and timballi. Cooking time: 15-16 minutes.
Rustichella d’Abruzzo Citrus Honey has an aromatic and pleasantly sour taste; it is perfect for healing over gastric ulcer and has anti-spasmodic and sedative properties. Particularly good to prevent insomnia and nervous excitation.

Furthermore, it is very good on Carasau bread (typical Sardinian bread), in the yoghurt or on fresh ricotta cheese.
Speciality of PrimoGrano line, the local type of tomato called “Pera” (pear) grows in Abruzzo. It is unique and very different from all the other varieties of tomato. It has been cultivated for centuries and has very few seeds, it is very fleshy and weighs about 300-500 g. It is particularly suited for the preparation of sauces and its sweet and velvety taste, together with its low acidity, makes it much more refined than all other common types. To enjoy its organoleptic properties, we recommend using it “raw”, pan-frying it together with pasta and adding just a little bit of PrimoGrano INTOSSO Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some perfumed basil leaves.

Arborio belongs to the category of superfine rice. It was created in 1946 by mixing Vialone rice and Lady Wright rice. The grains are well compact and lengthened, bigger than the Italian rice and the one produced all over the world. It is cultivated mainly in the Po valley, as it is suited to the weather conditions of that area, especially in case of clayey and alluvial soils. Its unique “look” derives from its big and pearly grains and high output. During the preparation, the grains cook perfectly and uniformly, keeping the central nucleus,which is rich in starch, al dente, and always providing an excellent creaminess. Cooking time: 13-15 minutes.
Made through an innovative production process with no pasteurization which makes it top quality even in its taste, the red pesto is made with dried cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and nuts, with the plus of the extra virgin olive oil of Aprutino Pescarese area.
