We have for two generations been importing and supplying Canadians with the highest quality of CITTERIO’s prosciutto “crudo” (raw). Prosciutto di Parma, Prosciutto di San Daniele and Culatello.
Bottarga is made from the “roe pouch” of the tuna or the red mullet, the eggs are carefully removed, washed, purified and salted. It is massaged by hand to eliminate air pockets and then cured in seasalt for a few weeks. It is then coated in beeswax ready for preservation.
Truffles are found all around the world but the most priced ones come from Italy and France. The summer truffle (Tuber Aestivum Vitt) is found in most of northern and all of central Italy.
The summer truffle is the most common and least expensive of all Italian truffles because of its plentiful and long harvest season. Almost all commercial sauce and paste are based from summer truffles. It’s shelf life is also longer than other types of truffles.Truffles have been used since the antiquity and already back then it was considered a pure delicassy.
