here are some Italian Food Products you can buy here in the US
I have lived in the U.S. for many years now, but still maintain good contact with Italy since I spend about three months a year there. Over the years one of the things I missed most when I was back on the North American side of the pond is the lack of authentic Italian food. More recently, however, there has been a better selection of good Italian products more readily available in the United States. Here are just some of the products, that are Italian and you can enjoy here in the US:
Kirkland select Balsamic Vinegar is excellent.
The same goes for the company’s olive oil; it’s harvested every year in Italy and has passed the University of California test for extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Cello Stravecchio Parmigiano Reggiano is a good cheese option. It is aged for 3 years.
Parmisan and Pecorino cheese at Costco – I prefere the pecorino over the parmisan. This Cello pecorino is excellent for the cost ( about $10 for 1.5 pounds) The Locatelli is better, but about twice the price per pound.
Mozzarella di Bulafa Campana on the top left is flown directly from Italy
Sea Salt: Sea Salt is getting more and more popular, an inexpensive addition that will make your kitchen more ‘gourmet.’
Two of my preferred pastas dishes are Puttanesca (tomatoes, olives, capers and, if you like, tuna or anchovies) and Pasta con Tonno (Pasta with Tuna). At Costco you can grab Italian tuna as well as the pasta to cook it with.
