Giada De Laurentiis with Academia Barilla As recently announced when we last talked about Giada De Laurentiis, we have great news for you today.

Academia Barilla is proud to announce the launch of a new product line designed in partnership with Italian Chef, cookbook writer and TV celeb Chef Giada De Laurentiis.

Academia Barilla and Giada De Laurentiis present a piece of Italy to Italian food lovers and food connoisseurs, to taste, enjoy and share. Together, Academia Barilla and Giada De Laurentiis are launching the much anticipated range of high quality, authentic Italian gourmet products.

The first product in the Giada line is, of course, an Italian classic: a 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, made exclusively with olives from Italy, with a very low acidity level.

With its versatile nature, distinct notes of mature, green olives and a smooth, balanced taste, this 100% Italian Olive Oil is ideal for use in all types of recipes, for finishing dishes and for olive oil dipping.

Next product in the Giada De Laurentiis – Academia Barilla line is an authentic Balsamic Vinegar from Modena with a young and fruity taste obtained from gently cooked grape must, grown and processed solely in the Modena area.

With its aroma full of balsamic notes and hints of aged wood, Giada’s Balsamic Vinegar also presents an harmonious taste with strong and well-distinguished scents of balsamic, and a dense and persistent texture.

A completely new product is Giada’s Tuscan Herb Mix – a mix of refined and appetizing herbs that capture the tastes and aromas of the awe inspiring rolling hills of Tuscany.

With a well balanced and defined aroma with clear sensations of chili peppers and wild fennel, Giada’s Tuscan Herb Mix offers a strong and intense taste, ideal for rich and savory dishes. As a serving suggestion, Giada De Laurentiis and Academia Barilla suggest to use the Tuscan herbs for all recipes including soups, sauces, marinades and rubs for any type of red or white meat.

As a final gourmet item selected by Academia Barilla and Giada De Laurentiis, an incredibly tasty Sicilian Sea Salt with Fresh Lemon Zest. The hand-harvested, all-natural sea salt with lemon zest comes from a combination of the pure Sicilian sea water and the freshest lemons grown under the Sicilian sun.

Giada’s Sicilian sea salt presents a delicate and intense aroma, with distinct hints of sweet, fresh lemons. Its fresh and delicate taste is characterized by intense notes of lemon, making this gourmet product a perfect ingredient to be coupled with light dishes, ideal for cooked or raw fish and shellfish, poultry, vegetables and desserts.
