I was very proud to meet real passionate Italian producers.

And I am very happy to sell their products on the new upcoming Nonna Armida shop!

The first place I visited is Frantoio Cornoleda, in the beautiful and unspoiled area of Colli Euganei in the northern Veneto region.

The two owners are a beautiful couple, Devis and Jaci, and they opened their frantoio (olive mill) following a real passion for the process of making olive oil. They proudly showed to me all their prizes they won since their opening in 2008. 

In Milan I selected the best panettone I have ever eaten!

Giovanni Manzoni starts making panettone in October, earlier then usual, just because his panettoni are in such high demand.

I love reading the label of his panettone as it is like homemade, with fresh ingredients. That’s why he suggests that you slightly warm your panettone up before eating: it is made with fresh butter and it softens up when a bit warmer.

More info next week…!
