The Rustichella d’Abruzzo Pantry was born out of a desire to respect the seasonality of produce with the goal of always ensuring the availability of vegetables and greens not available in certain months of the year. In the past, the pantry was a symbol of a family’s wealth and solidity. Italy, in fact, is a country that has often seen food shortages, and having a rich pantry meant guaranteeing a more or less decent life. Nowadays, when we talk about the pantry, we often refer to the summer period and the family’s preparation of tomato puree for the winter. A testimony this, of how Italians still preserve and much the traditions learned from parents and grandparents, who see in the recovery of crops, a symbol of great respect for nature and the seasons.

Our Products

Durum Wheat Pasta

Obtained by passing the semolina, slowly mixed with water, through the bronze dies that make the surface of the shapes rough and porous, perfect in combination with sauces and condiments. The rough surface enhances the aroma of the semolina obtained from selected durum wheat. The drying takes place at a very low temperature (40 ° / 45 °) for a duration (24-56 hours) which varies according to the formats. With this method the protein values and the exceptional organoleptic characteristics of the selected durum wheat are preserved.

Pasta Sauces

In the history of the Italian gastronomic tradition, we cannot talk about pasta if we don’t talk about the many condiments that accompany it. The first sauces during the Middle Ages that accompany pasta were mainly based on cheese, in the Renaissance the sauces became sweet and spicy, usually used on pasta cooked in meat broth. Cheese-based condiments were used both in nobles’ banquets and in simple peasant dinners. There are episodes in history where it tells of lasagna with cheese, or ravioli and macaroni, seasoned with mountains of Parmigiano Reggiano. Even Boccaccio in the Decameron praises its goodness. Also in the Renaissance, together with spicy and sweet sauces, meat and vegetable-based sauces were established, while fish-based condiments were limited to areas linked to the maritime tradition of the Italian coasts, including those of the island.

After wheat, rice is the most consumed cereal in the world, more than half of the world population, in fact, eats rice. About 90% of the production is concentrated in the East and there are many varieties, grouped according to the type of grain. From the East to Europe at the beginning of the eighth century thanks to the Arabs, who brought it to Sicily around the eleventh century. But it was the next century that the consumption of rice definitively affirmed due to the great famines, wars and epidemics of that time. The first evidence of Italian rice fields, created by Ludovico il Moro with the help of his brother Galeazzo Sforza, can be found in Lombardy and Piedmont and dates back to the end of the 15th century. Over the centuries, Italian rice became a real culinary institution, whose economy was subsequently developed and enhanced by Camillo Benso Conte di Cavour. Rustichella d’Abruzzo has chosen and re-proposed for you the finest and most selected varieties of Italian rice, such as Carnaroli, Arborio and Vialone Nano.
