Cucina Bella, Meet Bella Cucina

| October 8, 2007 | 1 Comment

Considering that one of the most frequent hits to this blog early on was “Bella Cucina,” I know there is a company by that name out there. But I had never run across their store or wares … until now. Honestly, I wasn’t even sure what they sold.

But then a close friend gave me the most thoughtful of birthday gifts recently(no, my birthday wasn’t recent, but we don’t get to see each other as much as we like): specialty salts from Bella Cucina.

She gave me three varieties: Wild Oregano and Sage, Citrus and Fennel, and Rosemary and Lavender. My husband and I almost immediately broke open the Wild Oregano and Sage and rubbed it on a steak we were making. Mmmm, was it good. I cannot wait to sample the other flavors (and have been playing with ways to incorporate these Bella Cucina Aromatic Savory Salts into recipes). There is also a new Tuscan Rose and Pink Peppercorn variety on the Bella Cucina site that looks yummy.

I think this Cucina Bella blogger may have been instantly turned into a Bella Cucina junkie – lol.

So anyway, if you are here looking for Bella Cucina, you have come to the wrong place. But do stick around and check out my recipes, writing and food facts. Click one of the salt links above to go to the Bella Cucina website.

Oh, and I just had to show off these adorable little bowls she gave me. I have all sorts of ideas for how to use them (mixing herbs and rubs, dipping bowls, mini ice cream bowls, etc).

Thanks, Rhian! I love this stuff!!!
