ABOUT THIS BOX
With great pleasure we welcome back Gabriele Bertaccini with another wonderful Tuscan Box (Numero Due). For those of you who are new, or missed his last box, Gabriele is currently living between Los Angeles, California and Phoenix, Arizona, where he is the Executive Chef and owner of iL TOCCO, a private boutique dining and catering company. He also organizes and directs the exclusive and renowned CULINARY MISCHIEF, an invitation-only underground roving event featuring a 6 course dinner and paired wines. Gabriele writes for several food magazines and publications, and regularly appears on NBC and other local and national television shows. You can follow him on Twitter @gabebertaccini and on his website www.iltoccofood.com
Several great items in the box this week, including beautiful Tarocco Blood Oranges from Goodland Organics, an extraordinary farm in Goleta, growing coffee (YES, COFFEE!!), finger limes, dragon fruit, passion fruit, blood oranges in the most idyllic setting overlooking the pacific. The Tarocco Blood Orange has a complex flavor, so please take a moment to savour it — we are working hard to select a special citrus variety every week to keep the winter fruit interesting for you:
And on the theme of blood oranges, we also have some Moro Blood Orange Marmalade from LA’s own Jessica Koslow of Sqirl — perfect on its own and also nice as a glaze on the Brussels sprouts.
