Late last year, I was contacted by the folks at Nonna Box to see if I would be interested in checking out their latest addition to their regional Italian selections, specifically, their Umbrian box. Since we live in Umbria six months a year of course I said I’d be delighted! Nonna Box is a monthly subscription of carefully chosen gourmet Italian products that highlight a different region each month. Each box is shipped out on the 11th of each month, and will be at your door and in your kitchen in just a few days later. You can sign up month to month and pause or cancel your subscription at any time, or you can sign up for three, six month, or every other month subscriptions.
Italian cuisine is so unique and different from region to region, and a Nonna Box monthly subscription is a wonderful way to travel across Italy and explore its many regions from the privacy of your own kitchen. This is a great way to learn about traditional Italian cuisine and its many regional food specialties. Nonna Box was even chosen by The Wall Street Journal as one of the tastiest and worldliest food boxes!
My Umbrian Nonna Box box arrived at my door, and it was packed full of Umbrian specialties including Stringozzi pasta, a dried pasta typical of Umbria similar to spaghetti but thicker in diameter, a porcini mushroom spread that can be used as a sauce, a jar of vibrant flavored arugula pesto, a jar of gooseberry jam, a container of Umbrian olive oil, and a delicious bar of hazelnut chocolate. Also in the box are eight quality cards with Italian cooking traditions, traditional recipes, and product serving suggestions, along with wine suggestions from Nonna Box’s in-house sommelier. Over the holidays we enjoyed the stringozzi pasta tossed with the mushroom sauce and it was delicious.
