For a Taste of the Mediterranean

For a Taste of the Mediterranean

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last 20 years or so you've probably heard of the numerous benefits of the Mediterranean diet. This way of life is built on consuming lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olive oil, fish and little to no red meat. Mediterranean cuisine looks like it will continue to gain in popularity because of its healthy cooking techniques, ingredients and use of light sauces. In addition all of these blends are also salt free.

This spice set includes:

  1. Naples Seasoning - Southern Italian cuisine is considered to be the "soul food of Italy". The cuisine tends to be spicier than northern Italy and relies on the sun-kissed vegetables available throughout the year including artichokes, eggplants, chile peppers, garlic, herbs, olives and tomatoes. This region doesn’t consume much meat at all, but when they do they tend to look toward the sea for it – clams, fish, mussels and squid are quite common. This blend is named after the largest city in southern Italy.
  2. Italian Seasoning - Talk about an essential for any well stocked spice cabinet! Italian Seasoning is our best selling herb blend and we are always sure to have a decent supply of this classic seasoning mix along with some pasta and tomato sauce in our pantry for any unexpected guests that might drop by. It is also incredibly versatile as you can marry it with vinegar and oil for a quick salad dressing, mix it with some top quality olive oil to use for dipping bread and of best of all you can add it to any tomato-based dish – from homemade pizza to lasagna or spaghetti.
  3. Paella Seasoning - Pronounced "pah EH yah", Paella is a rice dish that was created in its modern form in the mid-19th century in Valencia a town on the eastern coast of Spain. There are primarily three types of paella. The most authentic is Valencian paella which is most typically made with white rice, beans, green vegetables, seasonings and meat (a combination of chicken, duck, land snails and or rabbit). The second most popular is seafood paella which drops the beans and green vegetables and replaces the meat with seafood. The third type of paella is a mixed paella which has a looser mix of meat (from the Valencian style of paella), seafood, vegetables, and sometimes beans.
  4. Milan Bread Dipping - Dipping your bread in an olive oil mixture is a familiar ritual in Greece and in some parts of Italy. An olive oil bread dipping "sauce" may be just olive oil alone or a combination of olive oil and different spices and culinary herbs. While originating in Greece and Italy, the practice of dipping your bread in olive oil seems to be most popular in the US.
