CASINA ROSSA | SKU: SSP-103
Saffron & Salt is regionally-inspired from Abruzzo. Saffron was central to the economy of Abruzzo (where producer Casina Rossa is located) throughout the Medieval period, and its re-planting is part of an effort to reintroduce traditional crops to the rural economy. Saffron & Salt is beautiful in its vibrant orange color, with whole saffron filaments mixed in, and its captivating flavor is perfect for white meat, seafood, and rice-based dishes.
Flanked by the Apennine mountains to the west and the Adriatic Sea to the east, Abruzzo is known for its lush verdure, thriving tourist industry and mild climate. It's cuisine is known to be some of the most diverse in Italy, informed by the traditions of inland farming communities and coastal fishing villages. The result is a welcoming melange of tastes and smells that make Abruzzo truly unique.
Casina Rossa began as a way for Nicola and Paola DeLaurentiis to share their love of fine Italian cuisine. In short time, the husband-and-wife duo gained a reputation for quality and care that now extends to a full line of delicious products. From antipasti to olives to pomodoro, Casina Rossa represents the best of Italian craft.
