Gennaro Gift Set

Enjoy a gift set for an all‚ÄôAmatriciana dish and some sweets to come along with it

Notes from the Curator

Pas¬≠ta all‚ÄôAmatriciana is a tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al Ital¬≠ian dish with a col¬≠or¬≠ful ori¬≠gin. Tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly it is made with buca¬≠ti¬≠ni pas¬≠ta but Antiche Spaghet¬≠ti di Grag¬≠nano is a wor¬≠thy alter¬≠na¬≠tive. The key ingre¬≠di¬≠ent here is the sauce which is essen¬≠tial¬≠ly com¬≠posed of well cured guan¬≠ciale (but pancetta may also be used), extra vir¬≠gin olive oil, onions, red pep¬≠per flakes and some plump red toma¬≠toes. Here‚Äôs a recipe you can follow:

  • Cook your spaghet¬≠ti in salt¬≠ed boil¬≠ing water until they are al dente.
  • Pre¬≠pare either diced up guan¬≠ciale or pancetta, sautee in extra vir¬≠gin olive oil along with some diced onions. Add a splash of white wine and let the liq¬≠uid evap¬≠o¬≠rate a bit on the pan. 
  • Slice up your plump red toma¬≠toes and add to the pan. 
  • Bal¬≠ance the mix¬≠ture by adding a small scoop of your starchy pas¬≠ta water to the pan. 
  • Add some chili flakes or basil leaves as desired. 
  • By this time you can mix in your cooked pas¬≠ta to your pre¬≠pared sauce. Use tongs to trans¬≠fer your pas¬≠ta to the pan. Add pas¬≠ta water as need¬≠ed to mix the sauce together.
  • Serve with grat¬≠ed Pecori¬≠no Romano cheese.

Enjoy with a glass of dry Ros√© from Ramon Bilbao. 

For dessert, this set already pre¬≠pares Opti¬≠mus Mas¬≠car¬≠pone that you can driz¬≠zle with Muria Thou¬≠sand Flower Hon¬≠ey. Addi¬≠tion of fresh fruits can be an option.

Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 7 to 15¬įC.
