WHAT/WHEN: The Fresh Market’s “Flavors of Italy”
This March, The Fresh Market will host “Flavors of Italy,” celebrating the country’s colorful flavors and beloved cuisine. Guests will find inspiration throughout the store from a selection of The Fresh Market’s hand-picked, Italian classics that will be sure to make any meal bravissimo!
- Artisan Pasta: Crafted in Umbria from high quality durum wheat grown on a 6th generation family farm, this artisan-crafted delicacy comes from a family enterprise 150 years strong. The bronze-die cut texture helps the pasta cook evenly and hold sauce. Our pasta is dried slowly at low temperatures for 36 hours, creating a deliciously lush texture when cooked.
- Ciabatta Bread: With a thin crust and open, airy pockets inside, The Fresh Market’s ciabatta is shaped and scored by hand and baked fresh in store. Enjoy this light, yet hearty bread with dips, spreads and cheese.
- Fresh Mozzarella: The Fresh Market’s hand-made mozzarella is a creamy delight that’s crafted from simple ingredients. This cheese is a standout on its own or served Caprese style.
- Parmigiano Reggiano: Made in Parma, The Fresh Market’s salty and sharp cheese is aged a minimum of 18 months before it is months before it’s evaluated by the Italian Consortium for approval. Only the highest quality wheels are shipped to The Fresh Market’s stores.
- Gelato: The Fresh Market’s Gelato is made in Italy from an authentic recipe, with simple ingredients that are immensely flavorful. This gelato is slow churned in small batches and quickly frozen to maintain its rich, creamy texture.
- Tiramisu: Delicate and creamy, The Fresh Market’s tiramisu is made with mascarpone and ladyfingers imported from Italy. Complemented by subtle coffee and coffee liqueur flavors and lightly dusted with cocoa, this is an indulgent treat.
- Cannoli: Crunchy and creamy in the same scrumptious bite, the crispy cannoli shells are flavored with cinnamon and honey and filled with a creamy, sweetened ricotta mixture studded with chocolate chips.
