Orange Infused Olives Hand Cream

Orange Infused Olives Hand Cream

Product Details

This orange and olive oil infused hand cream can help protect your skin, and has rich emollient  properties. It is particularly suitable for people with dry and sensitive skin, as well as those who are often exposed to cold temperatures, or are in regular contact with detergents and other irritants.

The extra virgin olive oil ingredient within this hand cream nourishes and softens the skin, without making it greasy. The cream is readily absorbed, sinking into the skin almost immediately after application.

Calabrian orange essential oil is another active ingredient in this hand cream, along with goji water – these elements contain a large number of vitamins and antioxidants. The latter are said to keep the skin young, delaying premature aging.

This hand cream is also rich in aloe and mallow extract, both of which soothe redness and irritation.

None of the listed ingredients of the Oleificio Giacco hand cream are harmful to your health, nor are they detrimental to the environment.

Saffron Tagliolini Pasta

Saffron Tagliolini Pasta

Product Details

This is an artisan pasta that combines durum wheat semolina and saffron powder, to give the pasta a sweet, floral taste. There are also earthy undertones, with an aroma of fresh grass and honey.

The pasta has been bronze drawn, which is where durum wheat is mixed with water, and then drawn using bronze, before drying at low temperature. This gives the pasta a rougher texture, which allows it to better hold the sauce. The traditional Italian slow drying process also means the pasta retains some of the nutty flavour of the durum wheat.

Saffron pasta is best served with creamy sauces, which often incorporate shellfish and other seafood.

Bergamot Tagliatelle Pasta

Bergamot Tagliatelle Pasta

Product Details

This pasta has an intense but delicate taste. The traditional mix of durum wheat semolina and water, which makes up most Italian pastas, is enriched by the addition of bergamot essential oils.

Bergamot is a citrus fruit with extraordinary qualities, generally believed to be beneficial to your health. In fact, this fruit is often referred to as the ‘Green Gold of Calabria’, due to its wealth of benefits and uses.

As this pasta already has a lot of flavour through the bergamot, the tagliatelle goes best with simple fish-based sauces and condiments.

Bergamot Paccheri Pasta

Bergamot Paccheri Pasta

Product Details

To make this tangy pasta, bergamot essential oils are added to the dough, which is a combination of durum wheat semolina and water. The taste is delicate but aromatic – the bergamot adds hints of citrus, while the durum wheat brings a slightly nutty flavour.

Bergamot is often referred to as the ‘Green Gold of Calabria’, due to its numerous uses and health benefits. It is a citron hybrid, found exclusively in Calabria, a region of Southern Italy.

As the bergamot already adds a lot of flavour, this paccheri pasta should be paired with light fish-based sauces and dressings. A popular recipe includes salmon, cream and vodka.

Strozzapreti Pasta

Strozzapreti Pasta

Product Details

Similar to fileja pasta but shorter, the strozzapreti is twisted to form a tight curl. It is a Calabrian artisan pasta, made using durum wheat semolina and water.

In the production stage, the dough is processed with Teflon, which gives the finished pasta an even, smooth surface. The dough is also dried at a low temperature, to ensure that the durum wheat keeps its slightly nutty flavour.

This pasta can be combined with any type of sauce or condiment, though is traditionally paired with tomato based sauces.

Paccheri Pasta

Paccheri Pasta

Product Details

This paccheri pasta is an artisan durum wheat semolina pasta. The tubular shape allows the pasta to hold a lot of sauce, and the pasta is often stuffed with a number of ingredients, such as ricotta or other cheeses. According to legend, the paccheri shape was designed to hold at least four garlic cloves in each piece.

The pasta is bronze drawn and dried at a low temperature. The bronze drawing gives it a rough appearance, and allows sauce to stick to the pasta better. Drying pasta dough slowly ensures that you get a nutty taste from the durum wheat.

You can pair just about any sauce with paccheri pasta, though traditionally tomato based dishes are served. Red meat, predominantly sausage, is often added too.
