Shelled Sicilian Pistachios
In Sicily, pistachio is real excellence, as it is the only region that produces it in Italy. With their sweet and salty flavor at the same time, the extraordinarily crispy texture, although oily, pistachios are undoubtedly among the most beloved nuts.
Pistachios have a rich, earthy taste, and while they aren’t quite as versatile as other nuts, they can be eaten in a number of ways: as a snack, either raw or roasted, over salads, pistachios can also be puréed and mixed with oil and herbs to make a creamy salad dressing.
Popular recipes include pistachio as a sauce and dip or as an extra ingredient in the bread dough. Chopped pistachios are commonly mixed into or sprinkled atop desserts like ice cream, cake, truffles, and pastries.
What makes Pariani nuts special?
Pariani's challenge is to show its customers the faces and names of the farmers who grow their special nuts, such as cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios.
This is in fact much more than a short supply chain: it is the direct contact between those who grow and those who buy. Excellence, which is in the company's DNA, is guaranteed by the newly created Pariani Technical Specification, demanding specific production parameters to be further verified with a "sensory analysis" of the shape, color and flavor to determine the best lots.
Shelled Sicilian Pistachio
Pariani is a family business that began its activity in 2010 with the production of Hazelnut Oil made exclusively with PGI "Piedmontese Hazelnuts". From the immediate success of hazelnut oil among professionals in the sector, the entire range of strictly Italian nut oils was born. Pariani's range then expanded and was completed with semi-finished products for ice cream, including pastes, flours, grains, candied fruits, essences and special ingredients.
