Not only am I huge box subscription fan, but I am also a huge Italian food fan as well (being that I am 50% Italian)! Thus, when Eattiamo — an Italian artisanal producers box company — reached out to me and asked for me to review one of their box’s I said, “sì andiamo” about as fast I could.
Imagine having authentic Italian food delivered directly to your home every month? I can tell you right now that it is an addictive experience, since it is easy, affordable, and quick! Everyone loves Italy, Italians, and the delicious specialties they produce with generations of learning and love; creating food you can be passionate to lift up to your mouth, place on your tongue, and savor with your eyes just a little closed as the flavors take you to where they were grown and made.
Included in your Eattiamo box are seven full size products for a three course Italian dinner serving four people and/or a couple of romantic dinners with your partner. All of the items in your box are curated by Italians. Every day in Italy, the Eattiamo team, which includes food-lovers and food-experts, look for the best Italian food producers. They have an exclusive network of more than eighty producers and they select only the best products to bring to your table. They know their producers personally, including their stories and the passion they put into creating their delicacies that follow a longstanding tradition in Italy.
Every box couples high quality products with easy recipes to enjoy these delicacies in the best way possible. The box I received was from Cinque Terre, Liguria, which is located in Northwestern Italy where the Alps and the Apennines cascade into the Mediterranean. My favorite to make was the pasta (Trofie of Portofino), which we cooked with the pesto sauce (Pesto Sauce of Genova) and added mozzarella cheese and shrimp to complete the dish. Of course, we opened a bottle of wine and had fresh bread as well. There was definitely enough for leftovers the following day.
If you end up loving the products and cannot live without them, there is nothing to worry about! Every Eattiamo product is always available for purchase in their online shop. Personally, I plan on buying their extra virgin olive oil, more pasta, and some jams.
