#FathersDayGiftGuide: Treat Dad with a Box of Italian Goodies from Gusto di Roma!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Gusto di Roma for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

If your Dad is anything like mine, he loves food!  If you have a foodie dad or husband, consider gifting him a Gusto di Roma box this Father's Day!

Gusto di Roma, which translates as "taste of Rome," delivers curated boxes of Italian goodies straight to your door.  Our review box was quite obviously packaged with care:

Gusto diRoma boxes are full of ready-to-eat traditional appetizers and innovative small bites every month and make it easy to enjoy and share Italy with friends and family.  They make eating authentic Italian food simple and delicious!  In your box you will find a variety of flavors...items that can stand alone or be paired with others. No cooking is required – but Gusto di Roma selections just might inspire you to be creative in the kitchen.

They offer one-time premium boxes with 8 items, limited boxes with 5 items or a monthly box with 5- items, the most popular being a 3 month subscription.

 We were sent the limited Aprile box which included the following items:

Frantoia Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Large bottle of extra virgin olive oil produced in the antique, cold-extraction tradition. Great for anything you'd use olive oil for, especially as the base for bread dip.

Arrabbiata Seasoning

A large bag of dry arrabbiata spice mix with garlic, basil, parsley and hot pepper.  Makes anything tastes a little spicier:)  Great blended with the above olive oil as a bread dip or sprinkled on top of any meal you'd like to add a flavorful kick to.  So good!

Taggiasca Olive Spread

Olive spread made from brined black olives, a touch of extra virgin olive oil and salt, thyme and rosemary. Mixed with the above olive oil it makes a delicious bread dip. It can also be spread on bread or mixed with pasta for a simple yet tasty dish.

Castellino Marinated Grilled Green Olives

Grilled green olives without pits packed in sunflower oil and white wine vinegar. Eat as is, or mix with steamed vegetables for a great side dish.  Perfect way to dress up a charcuterie board as well!

Prima Frutta Plum Fruit Spread

Plum jam made with only natural flavors and chunks of fruit — no artificial colors or preservatives. Perfect with breakfast toast or atop vanilla ice cream for dessert. Yummy!

The box also included step-by-step recipes and an insert with detailed item descriptions, as well as a calendar:

We were pretty impressed with the items in our Aprile box from Gusto di Roma.  The products were full-sized, not samples and the variety was lovely.  The goodies were very high quality and items we might not be able to find locally, so that was pretty cool.  We love trying new foods, especially global cuisine, so this box was a huge hit.

If your dad or husband is a lover of gourmet cuisine, we would definitely recommend checking out Gusto di Roma this Father's Day!
