L'Aperitivo - the original box
  • Save 15%

Embedded into Italian culture is the ‘aperitivo’, an essential couple of hours after finishing work to take a drink and enjoy some delicious food with friends and loved ones. Recreate this cherished Italian tradition with a selection of beautiful Italian cured meats, unique and flavoursome cheeses perfectly accompanied with some fine appetisers for an unforgettable dinner. Enough to feed 3/4 as an amazing buffet meal or up to 6 as a starter. This charcuterie selection arrives beautifully packaged in a hamper cardboard box and a personalised message can be included at the checkout if this is a gift.

Contents of the box:

  • Selection between different Italian cured meats (approx. 400g in total) - In our cured meats you can recognize the genuineness and simplicity of Italy, and taste after taste, you can feel the care, passion, experience, and tradition, patiently accumulated over many years of work. The processing is still done by hand and the curing and seasoning is strictly done in the cellar only during the period from November to March: winter temperatures, humidity and experience are the masters.

Cured Meats List: Mortadella Gran Aroma - Salsiccia Tradizionale (Mild or Spicy) - Spicy Nduja - Cured Prosciutto - Red Wine Marinated Bresaola - Cured Coppa Dolce - Lightly Smoked Speck - Capocollo (Mild or Spicy) - Soppressata (Mild or Spicy) - Spianata (Mild or Spicy)

  • Selection of 3 different Italian Cheeses (approx. 300g in total) - From the fields to the stables, from the milking to the dairy, and from the dairy to your table, the supply chain of our work guarantees our products to protect our consumers. Our cheeses are the result of the artisanal processing of milk, free of additives and preservatives, exclusively coming from sheep and cattle fed on natural pastures and with selected herbs and fodder.

Worth a 5* review - it won't allow me to click in the boxes? Purchased as a present for family member who were extremely happy with contents. There was enough for two people to have lunch for several days plus items they used in other cooking. Would definitely purchase from here again.

We bought this hamper as an Easter gift for our daughter. We haven't seen her for quite a few months and she is missing her yearly holidays in Florence so it seemed perfect. She could not have been more delighted. She sent us photos of the beautiful packing, pretty tissue paper between each layer of food. She found the food itself absolutely delicious and said it brought Italy to her. It has lasted her for quite a few days and yesterday she texted another photo with the caption 'the gift that keeps on giving'. Thank you for making our daughter's Easter just about perfect. She has been so impressed by the range and quality of everything.
