Italian Cheese

No festive buffet would be complete without an indulgent spread of cheese! We recommend thick chunks of our Parmigiano Reggiani DOP that can be chopped off and dipped in our aged Modena Balsamic Vinegar. Looking for the whole package? Try our Italian Cheese Platter!

Bruschetta topped with Nduja

Next on the buffet table, add some delicious bruschetta (recipe) topped with Nduja – Nduja is a cured spreadable Calabrian salami best served warm in the middle of table using an Nduja Warmer.

Sun Dried Tomato, Almond and Pistachio Patè

Ideal on bruschetta or thick chunky bread, this patè is the perfect pairing with creamy cheese and makes for a great buffet addition. You can also add our Black Olive and Porcini Mushroom Patè – made from mouth-watering mushrooms found in the Sila Mountains of Calabria – this patè will add an intense and luxurious taste to your buffet spread.

Sott’oli (vegetables in olive oil)

A true Italian buffet would not be complete without sott’oli (vegetables preserved in olive oil) so make sure you grab a couple of jars of the following:

Artichoke Hearts in Olive Oil

Cracked Green Olives in Olive Oil,

Shredded Aubergines in Olive Oil

Sicilian Aubergine Caponata
