Agnoni Cream of Olives & Tomatoes
Agnoni olive & sundried tomato cream is an instant gourmet topping for canapés. Spread the cream over crackers, and top with a piece of mozzarella and a fresh basil leaf. Or toss through pasta for a quick and delicious meal.
The olives and tomatoes are grown on the Agnoni family farm and harvested by hand. The tomatoes are laid out to dry in the Italian sunshine, until the flavour is sweet and intense. They’re then pureed with the olives into a velvety cream. Stir it through pasta for an easy supper, or spread over veal escalopes and roll around green beans to make a stuffed veal roulade.
Agnoni began with husband & wife Neno and Nena Agnoni in the 1960s. They bought a farm just outside of their home town of Cori, in the Lazio region of western Italy. After the second world war, they had a desire to create something with their own hands that would last for future generations. On the Agnoni farm they still do things by hand wherever possible. That includes harvesting, preparing vegetables for preservation, and making some of the preserves themselves. Today, Nena Agnoni still oversees her children and grandchildren, as they run the family farm and make traditional Italian preserves for the world to enjoy.
