Fun facts

  • February = Italian festival

    Why don’t you try something new this year and head to the Battle of the Oranges Festival in Italy? Take part in the food fight with oranges competition or just enjoy the festival as a whole. We recommend it!

  • A match made in heaven: sparkling water & pasta

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s pasta you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a sparkling water. The bitter flavors of the sparkling water won’t detract from the flavors of your pasta.

  • A historical dish

    Do you like pasta? It was invented during 5,000 .B.C. in beautiful China.
