American All-Stars Box

Blackberry Preserves: Made for us by our friend Brain on the Western slope, this jam is made using Organic Colorado grown blackberries. It pairs beautifully with mild cheeses and tastes rather epic on a piece of toast with jam.

Nita Crisp Crackers: Made for us by our friend at Nita Crisp, Nits are a flattened, hand-made breadcracker. They are all hand cut and made in small batches with all-natural ingredients, and are most importantly, utterly delicious!

Ritual Chocolate Bar: Ritual Chocolate handcrafts small batch, bean-to-bar chocolate using classic European methods with a modern American style. At their small factory in Park City, Utah, Robbie and Anna are involved with the entire process  to ensure that their values for the highest achievable quality are present every step of the way. They source some of the highest quality cacao in the world to make their chocolate.  With no added flavors, their chocolate is an authentic expression of the flavor unique to each origin.

Honey Roasted Virginia Peanuts: Premium roasted Virgina peanuts, drizzled in light amber honey, coated in sugar and finished with a dash of salt. Utterly addicting and amazing.

A Night In Madrid

Saffron: Saffron is the worlds most legendary spice, originates from a flower called crocus sativus—commonly known as the “saffron crocus.” It is believed that saffron originated and was first cultivated in Greece, but today the spice is primarily grown in Iran, Greece, Morocco, and India. While micro-scale production of saffron does exist in the United States, most saffron found here is imported. Saffron is extremely subtle and fragrant. The slightly sweet, luxurious taste is totally enigmatic—it’s tricky to describe but instantly recognizable in a dish. As annoying as it is to say, you know it when you taste it.

Sofrito: This hand-made sauce is your first step to an authentic paella. It is slow roasted for three hours allowing you the perfect paella in much less time. Also ideal as a sauce for meats, fish, eggs, and pasta.

Matiz Piparras: Mild and tangy Basque peppers preserved in Vinegar, these lend the perfect brightness to your Paella.

Bomba Rice: When you get down to it, paella is all about the rice. And many chefs and paella aficionados agree that Bomba is the ideal paella rice. Grown in the rich soils of the protected L’Albufera Park of Valencia, this low yield, short-grain rice is extra-absorbent, taking in 3 parts liquid to each portion of rice. (Most other rices are closer to a 2:1 ratio). This allows Bomba rice to absorb all of your stock and the juices from your ingredients, yet still maintain a nice separate grain. This also makes more “forgiving” than other rices. So load up on the juicy seafood and other goodies – Bomba can take it!

Best of Box

Cured’s Fig Preserves: Made for us by our friend Brain on the Western slope, this jam just begs to be enjoyed with cheese.

All Tiles are finished with a pinch of Grey Sea Salt.

Ritrovo 6 year Balsamic Vinegar: This vinegar from Modena is aged in an innovative manner, making it a delicious, cost-friendly accent available to chefs of any ability.

In the rich, alluvial soil of Lambrusco di Sorbara in Soliera Italy, just outside of Modena in the Emilia Romagna region, the Maletti family has been producing quality traditional balsamic vinegar (aceto balsamico tradizionale) for generations. The Maletti’s produce their balsamic vinegar from the wine and grape must (unfermented, pressed grape juice and pulp before it’s turned into wine) of selected Lambrusco (red) and Trebbiano (white) grape varietals. Their vinegar is aged in an accelerated yet regulated evaporation process in former wine barrels of French Allier oak. The six year vinegar has an extraordinary density, aroma and depth of flavor with a clean delicate finish . Maletti balsamic vinegar is superb on a wide range of dishes, from fresh strawberries to salad greens topped with Parmigiano Reggiano shavings to most any meat dish.

Cured’s Truffle Salt: Black Truffle salt exemplifies the extraordinary power of salt to capture both the complexity and intensity of aromas and flavors.

Grove 45 Olive Oil: When you think Napa Cabernet, you think big, bold, and powerful, but still balanced. This is the olive oil equivalent. Lifelong friends Nena Talcott and Bonnie Storm make this incredibly small production oil from olive trees they imported from Sicily in the early 90s. Hand harvested and bottled in French perfume flasks (you’ll find these dotting our house filled with flowers), Grove 45 is truly a labor of love. That said, their oil speaks for itself… Full bodied, intensely deep green, fruity and peppery, this oil shows what California can bring to the table against the famous European oils we all know and love. It sets a standard for other American producers to work towards.

Cured’s Grilling Salt: The perfect balance of spice and salt, we designed this grilling salt to be universal and versatile. Sprinkle it onto flank steak before tossing on the grill, rub it on the skin of your chicken before roasting it in the oven, or try adding it to a pot of beans.

Dick Taylor Chocolate: Friends and founders, Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor, used to build furniture and boats before creating handcrafted chocolates. According to them, the process of creating furniture from raw wood is similar to creating chocolate from the raw cacao beans. Because they start from the raw cacao beans, the chocolate creating process takes over one month to complete, but allows them to skip out on having to add vanilla, additional cocoa butter, and emulsifiers, creating a pure, delicious end result. Their only ingredients are cocoa beans and cane sugar and their bars are a pure, delicious expression of what pure chocolate can be.

Poco Dolce Tiles: Poco Dolce has been perfecting the art of sea salt and dark chocolate with their signature line of Bittersweet Chocolate Tiles since 2003.

Rabitos Chocolate Covered Figs: Rabitos, in Spanish, translates to “short tail (like that of a rabbit).” Chocolate lovers in Spain have always known the joys of figs and cocoa.

For increased chocolate goodness, the whole fruit is coated in a chocolate shell.

Gustarosso Tomatoes: These are real DOP San Marzano tomatoes from Agro Nocerino Sarnese. For those of us unfamiliar with San Marzanos, they are a special tomato coming from Italy, more specifically, from Mount Vesuvius. The volcanic soil makes them sweeter and less acidic than traditional tomatoes. Authentic San Marzanos will be stamped with an official DOP-the same kind of certification and set of rules used for identifying wines grown in certain locales in Italy. Besides their sweetness and lower acidity, San Marzano tomatoes have firm, plump, easily removed skin and fewer seeds.

Martelli Pasta: The Martelli family makes these pastas in a tiny Tuscan town of Lari which is on the way to nowhere and out of the way from everywhere. Only Martelli family members create this pasta, and do everything right that most commercial pasta makers do wrong. They insist on using only the hardest durum wheat flour, extrude their pasta through traditional bronze dies (which makes the pasta grip the sauce) and take their time drying the pasta. The result is a rich, toothsome, utterly delicious dried pasta that will change how you think about  your weeknight pasta dinner.
