A symbol of the culinary tradition of Piedmont, this stuffed pasta stands out for its filling of roast beef, enhanced with the distinct taste of cabbage. It is the benchmark of Pasta & Company, located in the agnolotti’s home region. Due to the intense flavours packed into this pasta, agnolotti is best served in beef broth, melted butter or a light herb and butter sauce. Packaged in keep-fresh packs of 2 kg (expiration: 12 days) and in modified atmosphere packages of 350 g to 1 kg (expiration: 21 days).
Oversized ravioli which captivate the consumer with a gorgeous filling obtained mainly from the combination of vegetables such as spinach and endive, with ricotta and sheep cheese.

A typical specialty of southern Italy (Puglia), orecchiette is a simple type of pasta made by mixing water and durum wheat semolina. This ear-shaped pasta is perfect for red sauces with or without small meatballs or is served with rapini as a traditional dish from Puglia. Orecchiette from Pasta & Company is sold in keep-fresh packs of 3 kg (expiration: 12 days) and in modified atmosphere packages of 350 g to 1 kg (expiration: 16 days).
Along with orecchiette, tagliatelle is one of the most famous kinds of pasta in the world. With its strong emphasis on artisanry, Pasta & Company produces it still by breaking the eggs for the dough by hand, which are then added to pure flour and only a few other basic ingredients. The finished tagliatelle is sold in keep-fresh packs of 2 kg (expiration: 12 days) and in modified atmosphere packages of 500 g to 1 kg (expiration: 16 days). Due to tagliatelle’s rough texture, it pairs perfectly with thick meat sauces containing beef, veal, pork or rabbit, though it can also be enjoyed with tomatoes and basil, a light egg and cheese sauce, or breadcrumbs and nuts.
Corsini’s Tuscan cantuccini are made according to a recipe that has been handed down through generations of the Corsini family for nearly a hundred years. Only the finest quality ingredients go into their manufacture to ensure their characteristic flavour. In addition to its traditional almond cantuccini, Corsini also offers chocolate and orange peel versions of this classic treat.
One of the most successful products to conquer the lucrative holiday season is the traditional Italian sweet bread panettone, which is commonly eaten around Christmas and New Year. Panettone is a celebration bread made with an enriched dough and studded with jewel-like candied citrus peel and raisins. It offers a lighter alternative to the more stodgy Christmas fare commonly served in Northern Europe. This and the fact that it is not easy to make at home go some way to explaining its growing popularity in non-traditional markets.
Tradition is written large at the Corsini bakery. Its baked goods are made using the same basic ingredients and the same processes as nearly a hundred years ago, without additives, preservatives or artificial flavourings. The results speak for themselves. In a product range comprising over 140 different specialities, including traditional Italian breakfast biscuits, a full selection of cakes and tarts as well as delicious filled biscuits, it is hard to single out one that typifies the unique Corsini product philosophy.
Another classic Tuscan sweet is panforte. This densely rich cake made with honey and packed with whole nuts is sold in a traditional paper wrapping and should be enjoyed in small slivers. The flat, round cake dusted in icing sugar can be seen in bakery windows throughout Tuscany and is a popular souvenir for tourists to take home with them because of its long shelf life.
