This set is a great gift for anyone who enjoys a great bread dipping experience. The set includes three of our favorite spice blends for bread dipping, paired with an extra virgin olive oil. All you need is a warm loaf of Italian bread!
Milan Bread Dipper
Art, fashion, finance and industry. Milan has it all and, similar to New York, has become a culinary hub as it’s attracted talented chefs from all over Europe – and the world. While new chefs introduce exciting and creative dishes to the region, traditional Milanese cuisine is food of comfort – risotto, ossobuco, polenta, and the like. Fresh homemade bread is also a staple in the region. Our Milan Bread Dipper celebrates the cuisine and flavors of the region – and bread – with wonderfully blended flavors of garlic, tomato and tarragon.
Ingredients: tomato, onion, garlic, black pepper, tarragon, basil.
Sicilian Bread Dipper
Our Sicilian Bread Dipper celebrates the diverse cuisine of Sicily, combining elements of Arab and Greek spices with Spanish and French influences. Sicilian food is arguably some of the most delicious food in the world – and we think this garlicy, tomatoey blend, with hints of a smokey, slightly sweet flavor is right up there!
Ingredients: garlic, tomato, smoked sweet paprika, chipotle, basil, brown mustard, oregano, bay leaves, marjoram, thyme, rosemary.
Tuscan Bread Dipper
This delightful blend is inspired by and named for the Tuscan region of Italy. Meals in Italy are served with multiple courses, and in Tuscany, fettunta (toasted bread rubbed with garlic, drizzled with olive oil, and finished with salt) is popular. In our Tuscan Bread Dipper, you’ll pick up the taste of garlic right from the start, with a flavorful, herbaceous undertone, then finally a bit of heat from red pepper, celebrating flavors of the region.
Ingredients: garlic, salt, black pepper, onion, red pepper flakes, rosemary, basil, Mediterranean oregano, parsley.
Uses: For dipping bread, mix 3 tablespoons of the Milan Bread Dipper with a half cup of your favorite AllSpice olive oil. Adjust based on your tastes. We recommend combining the seasoning and olive oil about a half hour before serving it for the flavors to fully blend..
Create a zesty salad dressing by combining 3 tablespoons of the Milan Bread Dipper with 2/3 cup olive oil, and 1/3 cup of a red wine vinegar. This dressing can also be used as a quick marinade for chicken, fish or pork. Marinate chicken and pork for 2-4 hours before cooking, and fish for 30 minutes before cooking.
