It is came, like every year, that moment when the question we hear most often is certainly “Have you already thought about Christmas gifts?”; and it isn’t Christmas without gifts, whether you buy them in-store or online.
What awaits us in this 2020 may not be the traditional Christmas of every year, but there will certainly be moments of exchange and sharing.
The right time has therefore come to think about how to surprise relatives and friends with a special gift to put under the Christmas tree.
It is hard to resist to the good food‘s call in one of the greediest times of the year, it is a difficult task and that is why it will be difficult to go wrong with a Christmas basket.
Therefore we are sure that it will be a success, if it comes to Saporare‘s selection products and the best Italian food excellence.
Room for creativity: buy a Karibuny fair trade basket and fill it with the Saporare products you prefer.
Saporare chose the Karibuny Social Cooperative for the supply of Christmas baskets.
Since 1991 the company has mainly been involved in promoting fair trade and in 2015 it started a collaboration with the Women’s Association of the Ngakham’s Village, in Senegal.
Baskets are traditionally produced by women and used for different uses, both at home and in markets.
They have a core intertwined with palm leaves and lately finished with a thread obtained from the recovery of plastic bags.
In Africa, the practice of recycling materials is not at all usual and, for this reason, the awareness of the population on this issue is very important.

Keep reading and discover the products we have selected for a special Christmas edition: traditional panettone and 100% Italian pasta.
Panettone: the Christmas cake par excellence, that cannot be missed in your Saporare basket.
It has always been produced and consumed especially during the Christmas period in Italy, but today it is an internationally renowned cake also thanks to the creative reinterpretations of pastry Chefs all over the world.
Its birth is difficult to date, but it is known for sure that we begin to talk about it in Milan, at the end of the 15th century during the “Ludovico il Moro”‘s period.
Thinking of the modern Panettone that we commonly eat during the Christmas time, its invention is certainly to be attributed to Angelo Motta who, at the beginning of the 1900s, was the first to give the cake its current “dome” shape, and to leave the baking paper cup inside the package.
In the Saporare boutique you can find the traditional panettone made by Stefano Pigoni’s pastry in Scandiano, in Reggio Emilia province.
It is made by natural yeast (lievito madre) subjected to double leavening, it is made unique by the addition of raisins, candied fruit, orange peel and cedar, and it is a highly digestible cake.
100% Italian pasta: the food symbol of the Mediterranean diet, the perfect synthesis of health and taste.
Pasta is perhaps the most representative element of the Mediterranean diet and certainly the one that is never lacking on Italian family kitchens.
A gift full of taste and healthy to be included in your personalized Saporare Christmas basket, which you can find in our boutique along with other products.
We have chosen for you the pasta of two historical Italian pasta factories recognized for the excellence of the products obtained with genuine ingredients and an ethical vision, oriented towards respect for nature and man: the linguine of Marcozzi’s pastry in Campofilone and the spaghetti of Strampelli‘s pastry in Amatrice.
From the land of the famous Maccheroncini, Marcozzi’s pastry has been producing authentic Campofilone‘s egg pasta for over 20 years:
here, the ancient secrets of the past blend with production innovation, without ever forgetting the skilful craftsmanship and simple and genuine ingredients.
In the Saporare boutique you can find Linguine, the traditional Italian format of long egg pasta, made with durum wheat semolina and 100% Italian eggs, bronze drawn with slow drying and low temperature.
Smaller than tagliatelle, they are perfectly with Genovese pesto, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and tomato sauce.
The Strampelli‘s pastry is the first production facility in Amatrice that produces artisan dry pasta by mixing the best 100% Italian durum wheat semolina with pure mineral water of the nearby Velino’s Mountain and Pizzuto’s Mountain springs.
The bronze drawing and the long drying give a rough finishing to the pasta, that allows it to perfectly absorb the most varied sauces.
In the Saporare boutique you can find Spaghetti, the pasta format par excellence, which has always been a symbol of Italy all over the world.
Produced in accordance with the best pasta traditions, they are perfect if accompanied by tomato sauce, spaghettata ligure sauce and are perfect for amatriciana or carbonara.
