Leeks, known scientifically as Allium porrum, are related to garlic, onions, shallots, and scallions.

Cultivated leeks are usually about 12 inches in length and one to two inches in diameter and feature a fragrant flavor that is reminiscent of shallots but sweeter and more subtle.

With a more delicate and sweeter flavor than onions, leeks add a subtle touch to recipes without overpowering the other flavors that are present. Although leeks are available throughout the year they are in season from the fall through the early part of spring when they are at their best.

Vittoria White Grape

Vittoria White Grape

Seeded grapes are the most traditional and sought after varieties in Mediterranean countries. 

As well as having all the preventive properties of grapes, the properties of the seeds themselves are of particular relevance in these varieties. They have nutritional, antioxidant and anticancerogenic properties, as well as important advantages for the treatment of venous insufficiency and other types of swelling.

The nutrients in the grape’s seeds protect against heart disease, cancer, inflammation and other health issues.

Grape contains flavonoids, which can have antioxidant effects, lower the levels of low density lipoproteins (LDLs, or “bad cholesterol”), relax blood vessels, and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The antioxidants in grape might help to prevent heart disease and have other potentially beneficial effects. Red grape varieties provide more antioxidants than white or blush grape varieties.

Grape leaf might reduce inflammation and have astringent effects. In other words, grape leaf seems to be able to draw tissue together, which could help stop bleeding and diarrhea. These properties appear to be greatest in the red leaves.

Italian Anguria - Watermelon Mini

Watermelon is a sweet and refreshing low calorie summer snack. It provides hydration and also essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Along with cantaloupe, honeydew, and cucumber, watermelons are a member of the Cucurbitaceae family.

There are five common types of watermelon: seeded, seedless, mini, yellow, and orange.

Watermelon is around 90% water, which makes it useful for staying hydrated in the summer. It can also satisfy a sweet tooth with its natural sugars.

Watermelon also contains antioxidants. These substances can help remove molecules known as free radicals, or reactive species, from the body. The body produces free radicals during natural processes, such as metabolism. They can also develop through smoking, air pollution, stress, and other environmental pressures.

If too many free radicals stay in the body, oxidative stress can occur. This can result in cell damage and may lead to a range of diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.

The body can remove some free radicals naturally, but dietary antioxidants support this process.

Stracchino 250gr
HK$58

Stracchino 250gr

Stracchino is a term used to indicate different cheeses in some regions, such as quartirolo or crescenza. The name may be derived from the fact that these cheeses were primarily made when the animals returned from the alpine pastures and were tired (stracco) from the journey. Today, this term indicates a fresh cheese made with whole cow’s milk, with a raw curd, a soft and buttery texture and a characteristic flavor of milk, eaten fresh or after aging briefly for two weeks. 

Stracchino is a delicate cheese, so when it is purchased, it should be a uniform color and pure white, without yellowish spots on the surface. Its consistency should be delicate but firm and it should have an aroma of milk. It can be eaten alone as the final touch on a meal, or it can be an ingredient in a more complicated recipe. 

Italian Tradition

Stracchino cheese is quite versatile because of its delicate, fresh flavor. It can be added to a risotto for a light creaminess, it can be used in a piadina with speck and radicchio, and it can be the filling for a tart or cheesecake. Delicious finger foods can also be made with stracchino and vegetables like celery, escarole or radishes. 

How To Keep It Fresh

Stracchino will last for 2-3 days in the refrigerator if wrapped in paper or sealed in an airtight container. A light yellowish patina on the surface means that the cheese is starting to spoil.

Sorrento Tomatoes

Sorrento tomato is a tomato of big size with a round shape: it is particularly costated, and when picked presents a light red colour fading into pink with green hues. It has a delicious pulp, meaty and compact with a delicate and sweet taste. According to some this variety arrived in the area through trades with America at the beginning of the century, when, exporting lemons, the tradesmen purchased the seed. This theory is confirmed by the fact that the cultivation is limited to few towns in an area called "I Colli", and it coincides with the place the ship-owners who exported lemons resided at and in which there are other plants that are endogenous to the local vegetation, almost surely imported at the same time as the tomatoes. The cultivation of this variety became common in other Vesuvian towns where the product though does not have the same organoleptic characteristics.

Prickly Pear

Aprrox. 3-4pcs per 500gr

 

The name "prickly pear" is quite deceiving, because the fruit actually comes from a cactus plant called the "Opuntia" that's native in the Americas.

With a bright red exterior it's commonly used in juices, cocktails, syrups, jams, and candies for its refreshingly sweet taste.

Prickly pear cactus — or also known as nopal, opuntia and other names — is promoted for treating diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and hangovers. It's also touted for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.

Some preliminary evidence shows that prickly pear cactus can decrease blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Some research also suggests that prickly pear cactus extract may lessen the unpleasant effects of a hangover, possibly due to its anti-inflammatory effects.

 

It might be too early to call prickly pear cactus a superfood, but it can be part of a healthy diet. It's high in fiber, antioxidants and carotenoids. Indeed, prickly pear cactus is popular in many areas of the world, particularly Latin America, where it is a native plant.

The edible parts are the leaves, flowers, stems and fruit. Prickly pear cactus is eaten whole (boiled or grilled). It is also made into juice and jams.
