Galateo&Friends offers you the best of the famous “Italian well being” through a concept dedicated to those people who like to enjoy beautiful things, such as fine food.

As refined “gourmets”, Galateo&Friends decided to produce a complete food line as an expression of excellence: products from Italy and made in Italy, from extra virgin olive oil, to balsamic vinegars, going through to pasta, rice and truffle products.

Galateo&Friends have been researching the best quality ingredients to bring you the best tasting and packaged products from Italy.

Ricciolina Pasta

ricciolina_pasta_250gThis product is reminiscent of the pasta of the early 1900’s, which has now become only a memory of the older generation. It has been created for those that require well-defined taste. Thanks to the double quantity of wheat germ used, it is very different to the type of pasta that we generally eat today. The cooking time is of only 5 minutes, making it ideal for basic sauces, and even just with a sprinkling of oil, ideal for catering in which the cooking is undertaken with the greatest care and attention.

Vialone Nano Rice

vialone_nano_rice_500gA round-grained rice that increases greatly in volume when cooked. It is ideal for fish or vegetables risottos, and for light salads. The rice is grown using traditional, eco-friendly methods, minimizing the use of chemicals as much as possible. The large grains thereby achieved undergo a light manufacturing process that does not remove the entire external shell (germ), leaving them rich in nutrients: more fiber, more aroma, more flavour, and more bite after cooking. Furthermore, the absolute purity of its variety is guaranteed: the label corresponds to the contents of the package.

Carnaroli Rice

carnaroli_rice_500gCarnaroli superfine rice is a premier variety of high-quality Italian rice renowned for its big, round grains, superior nutritional qualities and outstanding gastronomic characteristics. Its grains, which triple in size during cooking, efficiently absorb flavourings and condiments while maintaining an extraordinary texture and consistency and, most importantly, will not overcook. In fact, this variety of rice is particularly suitable for rice salads and risottos, for which Carnaroli has a real penchant.

Salted Capers

salted_capers_140gCapers - contrary to common belief - are not fruit, but immature buds that, if left on the shrub, bloom into beautiful flowers. Every year, from the end of May to mid-August, caper buds are picked, sorted according to size, preserved in sea salt and stirred every day to promote fermentation, to enhance the flavor of the small hard green buds.
