Yes, you heard that right. Here at Gustiamo we have the best tomato paste ever, that’s Pianogrillo Estratto di Pomodori.
“Most everyone who cooks has a thing of tomato paste. It just never really has appealed to me, those canned tomatoes are all kind of a ubiquitous thing. I bought a quarter pound of this Sicilian tomato concentrate which kind of looks the same, it’s a deep dark red color, but it was handmade and sun-dried, and it was like a revelation. It is so dense that it’s essentially preserved, and using that when I’m cooking is just a dream.”
And Mucci chimes in that Pianogrillo tomato extract is nothing like that “muddy-tasting tomato paste at supermarkets… It’s my new favorite way to keep the sweet taste of summer going all year long.”
It’s true! Pianogrillo tomato paste is a secret ingredient for many of our favorite chefs.
