image2-300x200Food from Naples
Neapolitan cuisine is simple and traditional, and has always been based mainly on rural ingredients (pasta, vegetables, cheese) and seafood dishes (fish, crustaceans, mollusks). Many typical recipes have also been influenced by the different cultures that controlled the region over the centuries, especially that of Spain and France. Traditional dishes include sophisticated preparations such as timballi and sartu’ di riso as well as inexpensive but nutritious dishes like pasta e fagioli.

But this beautiful city is certainly known all over the world for its Pizza and its Pasta with tomato sauce. These foods are as great symbol of Naples as is the Mt. Vesuvius, the heart of any meal.

For this reason, since 1885 Luigi Vitelli has engaged in the mission of providing North American with these two staples of the Neapolitan kitchen: pasta and tomatoes from Naples, Italy

sanmarzano-150x150San Marzano Tomatoes D.O.P.

Luigi Vitelli offer includes the San Marzano variety tomatoes for gourmet cooks and consumers. San Marzano tomatoes are grown exclusively in the Agro Sarnese-Nocerino area of Italy. This is a variety of plum tomatoes with less seeds and water, perfectly suited for cooking. It’s a very old variety, extremely limited in quantity grown and produced. Because production is so very limited, the Italian Government and the European Union have formed a way of protecting consumers from fraud by having San Marzano tomatoes tightly controlled. DOP or denomination of protected origin is the mechanism that the government is using to tightly control the production and marketing of genuine San Marzano tomatoes. Labels for DOP product must be individually numbered to each and every can in specific lots and government officials must oversee this application. Unless a product has a DOP number and label it is not a San Marzano tomato.
