With powerful flavor that goes from salty to citrusy to piney to almost tingly, preserved lemons are an incredible (and under-used) accent to any savory dish.
The name of this dish comes from the Spanish (Morocco’s northern neighbor) word for pie: pastilla, and it’s similar to our more familiar version, mincemeat pie.
A popular Moroccan street food, these potato pancakes pair great with harissa dipping sauce!
With warming spices and filling lentils, this soup is comforting and satisfying. Be sure not to skimp on the olive oil and yogurt sauce—it tempers the subtle heat of the soup.
Is there anything more Italian than tomatoes with basil? The very smell of this simple dish conjures thoughts of the sunny Tuscan countryside. Plus, the recipe is easy to double (or triple) for larger crowds, and sure to please everyone at the table.
Fresh ingredients are key to living what Italians call la vita dolce (the good life), and this dish encompasses it perfectly: made with just cured meats, fresh arugula, olive oil, and the incredible balsamic vinegar from the Italy Box, this salumi salad is as good as it gets.
An indulgent combination of sweet mustard, garlic, broccoli rabe, and provolone, this grilled cheese might just become your new favorite. Be sure you don’t skimp on the balsamic at the end—it adds wonderful flavor to this fantastic sandwich!
