What Exactly Is Artisanal?

We often hear the term 'artisanal' applied to many different food products, but what exactly is artisanal?

In its simplest form, artisanal refers to any food product that is produced or grown in a manner that requires more attention, labor and with the use of a minimum of industrial methods.

Whether it is olive oil produced from estate, hand picked olives or long aged balsamic vinegar, artisanal pasta, the underlying process is the same. Care, attention and time are three of the basic ingredients.

Try one of our olive oils, pasta, or balsamic vinegar and see if the difference is not readily apparent. Sure, you will pay more, but then again it is always important to remember that quality does not come cheap.

You'll never go back to commercial products again.
