So I was bummed that I missed the Try the World box from Italy. (I have my subscription on pause at the moment.) But that didn’t last long, because I knew I could pick out exactly what I wanted from the Try the World store.
Passionate about both pastry and travel, Laura Raccah founded Mondo di Laura close to 7 years ago. Her delicious cookies are made by hand and feature the exotic spices and ingredients she discovered while traveling. Made with chocolate and vanilla, what’s not to like about these delicious cookies? – Try the World
Inspired by their grandmothers, the founders of I Lecchi della Torre specialize in vegetable preserves and crackers. These are made with just a few ingredients, including aromatic rosemary and flavorful olive oil. They’re a perfect appetizer all on their own—or paired with cured meats and cheese. – Try the World
Named “the finest pasta in Italy,” this chitarrine is made with just egg and flour. The owners roll the dough and hang the noodles by hand, so they retain their flavor and chewy texture. Unlike machine-made pasta, this chitarrine also has a porous surface, so the noodles hold onto sauces well. Chitarrine is best paired with simple sauces and mix-ins, like olive oil and steamed clams, though it’s delicious with pesto or meatballs as well. – Try the World
In southeastern Italy, this family-owned company grows organic olives in centuries-old olive groves, where ripe olives are then hand-picked and pressed just a few hours after their harvest. A classic olive oil with grassy and nutty notes, it’s excellent with savory foods. – Try the World

Note: The adorable Foodie kitchen towel from this post was one of the foodie birthday gifts that my sister gave to me this year. Love it!
