The Mediterranean diet starts with the variety
Preserving fresh vegetables in olive oil in order to have them ready to eat in the winter season is a very popular family tradition in Italy. Nowadays worldwide distribution has made fresh produce easy to find year-round, yet, marinated vegetables still have an important role in the Italians’ meals since they are the basic ingredient of the "antipasto all’italiana" besides cold cuts and cheeses. Also keeping some jars in the pantry is a good way to have tasty side dishes ready with no need to cook and clean!
Here we offer a high-quality selection of marinated vegetables and vegetables spreads processed immediately after harvest to keep intact the nutritional value, according to the traditional recipes.
Cerignola is a beautiful city near Foggia, its name is believed to be derived from Cerere - the Roman goddess Ceres - goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the earth.
La Cerignola di una Volta specializes in preserving local products of this fertile land such as artichokes, tomatoes, eggplants and more, using only the best raw materials.
Our mission when we founded BellaItalia was exactly this: to bring the best Italian food to your door anywhere in the world, and with La Cerignola di una Volta it was an instant match!
When we open a jar of their Broccoli Rabe or Artichokes with Stems, when we fix a quick aperitif whit some Taralli and their Seasoned Asparagus or the delicious Round Baby Peppers stuffed with Tuna we are transported to Puglia and its beautiful countryside.
This is exactly the experience we wish to bring to you too!
