Sea beans, also known as samphire, glasswort, pickleweed, or sea asparagus, depending on where you are in the world, belong to the genus Salicornia. With the highest salinity tolerance of any plant, sea beans are considered halophytes that flourish across saltwater beaches and coastal marshlands. Sea beans are technically flowering succulents, their branch-like stalks resemble thick grass that, when eaten, provide a satisfying, salty bite. Sea beans don’t just absorb salt from the ocean but also valuable ocean minerals providing them with high levels of iron, potassium, and magnesium.
Goat Gouda is curated by Central Coast Creamery in Paso Robles, California. This semi-soft cheese is ivory colored with a smooth mouthfeel and the slightly grainy texture of an aged cheese. Goat Gouda has a caramel scent and a slightly nutty and sweet flavor that makes this cheese an ideal choice for your cheese tray or picnic basket or when pairing with your favorite wine or beer.
Quicke’s Devonshire Red
Made by one of the most famous cheesemakers, Devonshire Red is a traditional English farmhouse cheese, it has a firm body and a close, flaky texture; the flavor is delicately sweet and improves with age. There is the merest hint of green-grass bitterness behind the more distinct butterscotch and nut flavors. The cheese is colored with annatto, and the curds are milled twice before being placed into the moulds resulting in a delicious crumbly texture. This product is made using vegetarian rennet.
Odds & Ends Pasta by Ritrovo
Ritrovo sources this Pastificio from Casina Rossa located in Gioia del Colle north of Bari. Their pasta is special in being made of 100% Italian wheat, cut with bronze die and slow-dried for up to 72 hours. Purely artisanal. Moreover, the colored pastas they make are all enhanced by natural coloring agents like beets, turmeric, and spirulina which add micronutrients as well as beauty to every primo piatto. They also add from Marella some tasty handmade taralli and biscotti, all baked to order with local extra virgin olive oil. Their flavors and rustic texture are typical Pugliese style and will add the flavors of southern Italy to any meal you cook.
