Culinary love affair with Liguria

Last week, we began our culinary love affair with Liguria by introducing three of the coming box’s products — and this week we’re continuing the get-to-know-you session.pesto and bruschetta spread

First, meet, pesto. Pesto Genovese to be exact. You two have probably rendezvoused before over a bowl of fettuccini, but did you know that the nut- and basil-based green sauce originates from Liguria? Indeed, it does, so get ready for an appetizing and very authentically Italian reunion.

Crunchy, toasted bruschetta can be topped with just about anything, from garlic and olive oil to more elaborate ingredients like olives and sun-dried tomatoes. The jar in your Liguria box brings together the best of local toppings in one carefully crafted, seductively delicious spread.

Your box’s chocolate bar plays hard to get with its limited availability (and I really do mean limited: it’s almost out of stock with only 3 bars left!), and a 72-hour production process that uses a 200-year-old method involving a granite stone crusher. Only adding to its need-to-try appeal: The confection is crafted by the same chocolatier at which the famous Ligurian-turned-American Domenico Ghirardelli was an apprentice.

Make a date with this month’s Nonna Box, which will ship next week. I think it’s one of our tastiest boxes yet!

P.S. Though I realize you probably want to make a mad dash to the kitchen for a snack, I’d like to take this opportunity to also announce an exciting new partnership: Nonna Box has become a sponsor of NIAF, the National Italian American Foundation. We couldn’t be more proud to support an organization that shares our commitment to and passion for Italian heritage and culture.
