Riso Gazzani: buono oggi e buono domani!

Gazzani doesn’t make stereotypical, nutritionally worthless white rice. Yes, Gazzani Carnaroli and Vialone Nano rice is white (well, white-ish), but there is a lot more to this rice than meets the eye. See this photo of the field?

Are those real San Marzano tomatoes?

We are really excited for this new article in Taste magazine about San Marzano Tomatoes. We like it because it’s blunt and to the point. Mari Uyehara, the article’s author, just gets it. One of her main points is: “Better to find a canned tomato that specializes in tomatoes, not advertising.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves….
